DonMeixner Tech: Acoustic Guitar Amps for small jobs (8) Tech: Acoustic Guitar Amps for small jobs 01 Aug 10

My son is looking to buy a two channel amplifier for acoustic shows. He has a limited budget of around $350 to the absolute most of $400 and can't get a straight answer from local dealers on what fits his bill. Despite giving his budget, experience and requirements every salesmen (save one or two) push him towards $1000+ AER, Fishman or Bose systems and no information as to why these systems best suit his needs.

He is currently eyeing an Ibanez T35 Troubadour, but reliable reviews are few and far between online. Might someone here have any two cents to throw in on this amp? Minimum power requirements for small venues, coffee houses, small out door gigs, et al.

The performance guitar he'd be using is a Martin JC16GTE, maybe my old Guild F 30 with a pre-amp, and he wouldn't be using any effects on the guitar. He sings, but doesn't play with any other performers, which is pushing him towards a two channel amp instead of a full PA system. He isn't 100% sold on the Ibanez, so any other input on systems for solo performance would be great.
