I am a 4th year Industrial Design student currently working on a project to redesign the electric guitar case to include an amp and speakers to improve the tiresome task transporting all the equipment.
I have examined the 1960's Danelctro/Silvertone amp-in-case models (http://www.retrothing.com/2007/12/guitar-week-sea.html
) and have come to the conclusion that this concept could be greatly improved by incorporating some of the incredible technology we have today. Making it lighter, louder and better to listen to and look at.
I am looking for any advise on this topic as well as some ideas and things to consider. I am a passionate player myself but my technical understanding is a bit lacking , so simple explinations will help me out a bit more. Any clues to where I could find compact, low-profile equipment would also be a huge help.
Thanks very much..your input will be greatly appreciated.
