It makes noise but sounds nothing like the guitar by itself. Almost like the low notes are overriding the high because you can barely hear high notes.

1 - no, it won't sound anything like the guitar by itself. That's kind of the point of an amp.

2 - What EQ controls does the amp have? It may be that you've got the bass up & treble down. (Also check the tone control on your guitar).

What amp/guitar is it?

Also, so you know this should really be in the Gear & Accessories forum

I had all the EQ controls down, it's a fender mustang and a first act stratocaster

Start by turning them all up to about halfway, and tweak things up & down from there.

As it's a modelling amp, you'll probably need to read the manual to make sure there isn't another setting somewhere doing something you don't want it to.
