I am using this amplifier with a Washburn X-10, and an ESP LTD EX-102. It suits my music styles perfectly, especially since it isn't made for just one style of playing. I go from slow/soft rock, to blues, to metal, to black metal, to simple punk. And it flawlessly exhibits sheer hard work and determination on Line 6's part.
Overall Impression — 10
I play mostly metal, and it is perfect for what I want it for. I have only been playing for two years, and I started off with a Marshall MGD-10. After getting really good on that, using no harmonics or anything, simply because it was too cheap of an amp to do them with, and then going to this, I sound like a pro! I have had many people come to my house impressed with how well I play for only 2 years under my belt, and I would definately suggest that the amp helped alot with that. If this amp was stolen from me, I wouldnt even hesitate to go and buy another one, that same day. I love practically everything about this amp. Probably my favorite feature is that I can go from clean, to blues, to crunch, to insane metal. You can not compare this machine to any other amp. It is a prodigy all in its own, honestly. Buy this amp.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I would rely on this amp in rain, thunder and lightning. I would definately rock a gig with no backup with this amp. And no, this amp has never broken down on me, and I don't think it ever will. It is a solid amp, all the way through.

Made in 2004, I think that the Line 6 Spider 112 is an absolutely solid amp. It is also the perfect amp for me. I can go from playing Stairway To Heaven, to some Metallica, to some BB King flawlessly, with no transition, thanks to the footswitch/presets. I can use this amp anywhere, and it plays perfectly, with out any rumble or feedback when cranked high.
