German amp manufacturer AER - The Acoustic People and the legendary guitarist Tommy Emmanuel have formalized their relationship with the release of the new Compact TE signature acoustic amp. The accomplished Australian fingerstyle player, a two-time Grammy nominee and twice the winner of Guitar Player magazine's "Best Acoustic Guitarist" award, has long been an unofficial AER ambassador and one of the best-known users of the company's products.

Over the years, Emmanuel has relied on a number of different AER amps, and has recently incorporated the company's Colourizer sound-shaping preamp tool into his rig. AER President Udo Roesner explained the approach taken by the company in developing the Compact TE. "Our relationship with Tommy began organically several years ago. He has always played our amps 'as-is'," said Roesner. "No tweaks, no hidden secrets. So rather than piling on a list of additional features that Tommy himself has never relied on, we chose instead to give his amp a truly personal feel by incorporating tributes to several of his influences."

The signature amp is based on AER's best-selling Compact 60, the 60W model used most often by Emmanuel. Aboriginal art etched into one side of the cabinet symbolizes Tommy's deep love for his homeland of Australia and its people, and in particular his connection to Aboriginal Australians. On the opposite side of the cabinet, Tommy's "TE" initials are carved into the cabinet as well as "CGP" - a tribute to Tommy's mentor Chet Atkins, who bestowed upon Tommy the honorable designation of Certified Guitar Player (C.G.P.). Tommy was one of only five guitarists ever to receive the distinction from Chet.
