I own a Yamaha Paciica 112V and mostly use my humbuker pick-up and it sounds perfect for my style (heavy metal/rock). Its sound in amazingly loud for such as small amp, I mean blimey!, on full volume it can easily equal a 30w Marshall amp! It has loads of variety and can cover most types of music easily. If you turn it to full volume on the clean channel is does become slightly disorted, but still sounds ace! The distortion, well, at full volume... Sounds like a chainsaw on a blackboard, but it can be adjusted and it sounds perfect. You just need a little patience.
Overall Impression — 10
It sounds so good and it does very well in keeping the sound full and rich. I am also buying a Fender Frontman 25R and using both at once using a chorus pedal. If your a beginner or a expert needing a durable amp like me this is for you. And with its perfect sound and matching quality you can`t go wrong
Reliability & Durability — 10
This amp is VERY reliable. You could throw it off a stage and it would still work. Mine has never broken down or suffered a short circuit or ANYTHING, Fender build quality put it that way. You could happily use it at a gig, but if its a large room or outdoors you may need a back-up amp or a chorus unit.

What can I say, what a perfect little amp the Fender Frontman 10G is! I mainly use it for playing at home and for band rehersals and it could well be used to go live with as well! It only has one effect which is overdrive and it only has one channel but it aslo has a aux. Imput and a universal headphones imput too. If Fender were to redesign the amp, I wish they would give it an effects loop and more on-board effects. Overall a whopping little amplifier perfect for my style and, in my opinion, the Fender Frontman series are the best amps available.
