amplifying my Cigano gj-10?

I recently bought a cigano gj-10 and i have the Roland ac 60 amp.
I am wondering if anybody got some tips on good ways to connect the 2 things.

    Yeah Stimer or Bigtone or Audio Technica Pro70.
    There's also Schatten, K&K and a $50 bucks Dimarzio that actually sounds pretty good: ... 1127851.gc

    if u need amplifying
    in low volume (home play or record): pro70
    in medium volume : k&k
    in high volume : bigtone+AER

    :idea: anyway,i think that for this guitar & amp pro70 is better choice.

    What you didn't say is how you plan to use it. Amplifying at home or in small quiet venues is one thing, playing in a noisy bar is another. Any mike is going to have feedback issues, especially with an instrument amp. The Bigtone (Dupont only, please) will give you a strong signal and good feedback rejection.

    I've had passive Schattens in a couple of guitars, played through a Roland AC60 with good results. A good preamp helps (the Baggs Para DI is excellent). The K&K is probably similar.

    Another option is a Schertler Basik. Needs a preamp also, but the advantage is you can move it to a different guitar if you upgrade in the future.

    I was thinking i terms of small venues.
