I have a Epiphone Les Paul Custom with 3 epi humbuckers. I plug a lot of rock pop/punk power rock and I play guitar in a power trio and it sounds perfect this sort of stuff. The tone is a little tricky to set can be set perfect for anyone and it's very loud, the OD is brilliant it sounds clear and crisp and can be soft OD or roaring OD and everyhting in between. The clean channel does not distort at high volumes as it have a volume and a gain control for the clean channel.

This amp is a perfect match for every style of music it's not too heavy is very loud and doesn't buzz, has great tone, doesnt't make wierd sctraty noises, withstand all say abuse for loads of great band I own a Marshall VS230 and an Orange crush and this is my favourite amp I'm glad I bought it and stand by my choice. If it were stolen I would buy it again definatly by I would try others aswell but after the gig I have fallen in love with it.

I can and have depended it on it. I play my a gig with it yesterday for the first time and the tone was perfect and also it didn't really feedback much. Through the day it was used by a lot of bands as the other guys preferrrd to use mine over the MG series amps and there Fender amps they say it's much better. It was turned on for almost 5 hours straight and it didn't break down or go wrong in any way it was also very moveable the weight balance seems perfect so if you lack muscle buy this amp as it's not a struggle to move. I also dropped the cab and it lived.

This amp was made in 2007 as I can tell from the serial number on the back of the head. It has 4 channels, acoustic simulator with a never use it's a poor show but I don't really care, I didn't buy it for that, Clean channel, this rocks you can have clean clean or push the gain up and have a crunch valve style clean. Overdrive 1, this is the channel I always use it has a very Vintage but also modern sound to it, it has a scoop facility to scoop the midrange which I don't really use. Overdrive 2, this is also barely use this is an extreme heavy metal style overdrive. It has 13 onboard effects which have been used by me quite a bit they make for good interesting song writing. on the back of the head is there is a an FX send and return, a headphone jack and two plug for cabs. the footswitich has 6 buttons, 1 for each channel and 2 fx switichs for clean FX and OD FX. This is amp is loud for any gig I can think of and the tone can be set perfectly for anyone.
