I used two guitars with this amp; a 2004 Gibson Flying V (496R & 500T Gibson humbuckers) and a Gibson '61 SG reissue ('57 classic humbuckers). I play everything under the sun, from jazz to death metal, and this amp does it all. Very noisy, but in a good way, and blasts the pants off your average concert-goer. If you play metal, this amp will blow everyone away.
Overall Impression — 10
I hate nothing about this amp and love everything. If it were stolen, I would find the person Who took it, castrate them and bring my baby back home. I chose the amp because I love Line 6 so much. I couldn't live without the distortion settings on this thing. It also comes with a 4-channel footswitch with a pedal wah and volume control, which is quite useful.
Reliability & Durability — 10
Definitely would use it without backup; the most dependable amp I have ever used, and the loudest as well. Never broke down for the week I had it. The amp has never been neglected, so I saw no problems with that; as well, it's a solid-state amp, so no problems with tubes or anything related.

This amp was rented for one gig. 150 watts solid-state. This amp is like a simple computer; there are so many on-board distortion/overdrive/effects settings that it's ridiculous. As well, it allows for channel mixing (by that I mean there are two channels, and you can set each channel to an individual distortion setting and either use just one or combine them for a unique sound). Basically, this monster is the Swiss Army Knife of amplifiers; fits any style incredibly. It was used at a small club and it was WAY too loud.
