Since I feel like my Katana can do everything any of my tube amps can do (and more), I almost feel like getting rid of every tube amp I have. I haven't tried the acoustic setting though.
I'm 55, started a business at 20 and ran with it for 16 years, got married at 38, started a family at 45, been putting myself 2nd to these reasons for a long time.

I'm comfortable and just wanted the amp (Fishman) so I bought it. I may never play out, if I do at some point I'll have it to go with me, if not I spoiled myself with a $300 amp, I'm certainly worth it. Comes a time in ones life you just say, enough sacrifice. I got a couple of nice to me guitars, now amps, it feels good.

Yeah that is a bit of a problem. Finding a great guitar that is also made left handed is a chore. When I look up used gear you have to act fast as they don't stick around long if it's a great deal.

You'll note however that the imogi is also left handed.

You have good equipment. Might be better than mine.

Do you sing and have a PA system?

I'm wondering why you have an acoustic amp if you don't play out. I never plug my acoustics in, except to check the electronics.
Heh.. I use my acoustic amp for everything under the sun... except gigs. I always run through a P.A.

Do I sing? Yes, much more then my wife wants to hear.

I enjoy singing but sadly my voice isn't well adjusted to the task. No PA as I'm still struggling with the guitar, I have learned to sing along while I play on a few songs so that helps somewhat.
