I bought the Loar LH-309 & LH-319 arch-tops with P-90 pickups. My old amp was the Peavey EFX-112 100-watt acoustic amp. My Peavey amp sounded good with my flat-top acoustic guitar with a piezoelectric pickup. However, my arch-tops with P-90's sounded like a banjo on steroids. I then got myself a V-Tone Acoustic Amp Modeler, with very little change. Then I tried the ZOOM A-2.1 Acoustic Effects Pedal, & I became frustrated. Fast forward through a hundred more youtube videos, I sensed that I might need to try a tube amp, but a quality tube amp is expensive. I saw this amp advertised on my facebook wall. When I read one of the reviews about this amp wanting to sound like a tube amp, I decided to try it. Wow! What rich tone & distortion & Loud!! My girls sound so good with the Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp. Thanks For A Great Deal Musician's Friend!!!

Has a great clean sound, the overdrive channel sounds great with my strat, but horrible with my Les Paul. Get the Behringer Vintage Tube VT-999 for your Les Paul. Great practice amp, and I'd use it to play out. Sounds good enough on my home recordings. Get your own chorus/delay and phase shifter though, and just use the reverb on the effects.

      Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

      The sounds for this amp are far better than any amp I have owned. The only thing I did not like is the fact you can't change the tempo in which the delay comes though as. That to me is important. But the sound is still amazing regardless. If you like delay, just buy a pedal, but in combo with the amp, is amazing! So I will be purchasing a delay pedal soon. Just wish I could change the tempo, only complaint. Otherwise, the amp is well made, and sounds fantastic!

        Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

        I have owned this amp for over 2 years. The comments about the popping sound when turning off are on the dirty channel only. I have a 2 button foot switch that turns on/off the effects and selects the channel. The amp does not come with the switch and does not have one available. I bought a Hosa FSC-385 switch which works fine. If you select the clean channel before turning the amp off there is no popping. The same is true for the white noise. The dirty channel has the noise as a distortion function. Clean channel is fairly noise free. Not that it is a Crown but for a guitar amp acceptable signal to noise on the clean channel. I think the volume disparity is due to not using an audio tapered potentiometer. For the price this amp is hard to beat.

        The Acoustic G120 guitar amp was exactly what the Musician's Friend catalog described. It does everything I had hoped for and for the price was a very good purchase.

        Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

        I own this amp in this combo setting and also in the "head only" configuration. Overall this is a really good
        amp although there are a couple of drawbacks. Since I'm really pleased with it in general I'll get to the cons. The first is, if you're looking for a loud amp then look no further. This has all the volume you'll ever need in "any" venue. I've never had to mic it, not even outdoors. The problem is, it's hard to set at a "low" volume. I wish the volume would increase a little slower with the knob control because it jumps from very little to "a lot" by barely rotating the knob. There is no "in between". You're either pretty low or raging, with not much space between the two. That's not a problem if this will be a "stage only" amp for you. For around the house practicing, it's hard to find that "sweet spot" volume setting. Since the only time I use this amp I'm usually playing with a drummer I've gotten to where I can overlook this. The other problem has been mentioned already by some of the other reviewers but I'd like to address it too and that is the loud "pop" coming through the speaker when turning it off and on. I sent one of these back because of that and then when the second one came with the same problem I discovered the "cure". Apparently it is some sort of ground loop problem in the wiring configuration which I was able to stop by turning down the "level" knob on the effects before turning off the amp. Once I did that, no more "pop". You other reviewers that have this problem should try this. Simply turn the effects level knob to zero before you shut it down and that ends the "pop". It worked on both of the amps I own.
        As far as the "pros" of the amp, I love the simplicity of the controls and the selection of effects. They all sound pretty good. The clean channel is amazingly clean at any volume and the gain channel can bet set to give you just about any degree of desired overdrive.

        A "Marshall" 2-button footswitch is perfect for this amp.

        Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

        I bought this amp because of the weight. I have a 2 x 12 Lab amp that is a great amp but weighs a lot. I have played one gig with this amp and was very pleased. It is powerful and good sound. I am in a rock and roll band. Things I didn't like - no cover, no foot switch and you can't adjust the effects without doing it directly on the amp. You can shut the effects on and off with a foot switch, but not adjust them. I bought a foot switch that works great for very little money and my Lab amp cover fits this amp. I can lift it in my truck with one hand, much easier than the Lab amp. I recommend this amp.

            Unless you are trying to fill a stadium with power keep it low. 1 is perfect for small venues of 100 or less area. at 4 my windows rattle and it can be heard across my yard which is 100 yards wide .This amp has some power, can't ever imagine using it all

                It needs to be made clear in the add that you cannot use two instruments in the amp. You can only have one channel active at a time. So it is a one input amp.
                Also the mp3 input has so much white noise that it is not worth trying to use.

                It does have a clear sound, but not a good amp for a Traditional finger style guitar player.
