    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:

      I love this amplifier. It provides excellent tone no matter what genre I am playing, it gets extremely loud. I cannot turn it up 1/4 of the way without it shaking half of the house. The built in effects I'm not so astounded with, only a few of them are useful to me. The ones I do use work wonderfully and provide the precise sound I want. Effects or not, I still got a TON of amplifier for the price. It is aesthetically pleasing to me, it suits my style to a T. I've bought cords with white end-wraps to match the white trim whilst using it. This amp is sturdy as a rock too. The dual channels and high/low inputs are very helpful and I love the sounds I can get by activating the frequency control.

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

        This is one serious monster of an amp. Huge sound, decent inboard effects and a price that can't be beat. Paired it up with my Digitech RP150 and I couldn't be happier with the sound I am getting. Event without the RP150 I was really pleased with sounds I was getting and talk about power this thing hasn't made it past 2 on the volume knob. We play loud and this thing has plenty of juice leftover for my needs.

        A great amp at a great price. If there are any drawbacks I haven't found them yet. My buddy liked mine so much he bought the 100 for himself. We'll done Acoustic!

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

          I've had this amp for over a year now and I'm still very satisfied with it. It sounds fantastic. It's plenty loud enough to play gigs and shows with.
          The speakers have a tight, thick sound. Clean tones can go from spanky tele sounds to dark jazz sounds, or even some pretty reverb-heavy ambiance. The gain channel can get pretty heavy with the amp turned up a bit; if you plan on playing at low volumes don't expect too much gain. Crank it up and it roars. I've recorded quite a bit of metal with this amp, both with the onboard gain channel and with distortion pedals, and I'm very happy with the tones I get.
          This amp has exceptional tone sculpting capabilities, with a four-band EQ and an extra Mid-Shift switch that scoops out the mids. It has an extraordinarily balanced response; I don't know that in the year or two I've owned it I've ever boosted or cut any frequencies past 2 or 10 o'clock, respectively. I feel that it's tone is the best with all EQ controls straight up at twelve noon. Depending on what you play you may boost or cut something, but the natural response is even enough that it sounds great with little or no adjusting.
          The DSP effects are a little cheesy in my opinion. I use the reverb some, but I hardly ever use the others. They don't detract from the amp of course, and it's great to have them even if they don't get much use.
          Overall, it's cheap, sound awesome, is stinking loud, and quite versatile. I'd buy it again.

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

            Was looking for an inexpensive amp to carry as a back up to my 100w tube amp so I thought I would give this combo a try. I don't care for the distortion sounds on this amp at all but the clean channel is very loud and clear. It works well with my pedals. Getting a slight buzz when powered up, which is noticable at low volumes. This amp is too powerful to be used as a home practice amp but is perfect for gigging in small bars or clubs. Initially I thought that one of the speakers was damaged but what I was actually hearing was the picture frames on the wall of my practice room vibrating. Sounds funny but even at low volumes this amp moves a lot of air. I'm happy with it and it should serve perfectly as a great little backup.

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

              Value: For the money, this is one of the best deals out there on a non tube guitar amp with this much power. Mine arrived in perfect
              condition and well packed in the sealed factory box. At 42lbs, it's not too much a chore to haul around. I usually play in clubs and for that,
              this amp is almost overkill, but it's cool. My fx peddle runs a stereo out and I have been wanting an afordable amp with some serious thump
              to pair up with my Beringer rig. I believe I got a great deal on this sweet amp.

              Looks: Retro Acoustic amp style still rocks! Very nice heavy duty corners over a leather look skin and tweed grill material makes this amp
              look like it just time warped right out of the 70's.
              The control pannel is set up simple, and very easy to use. No bells & whistles to get in your way. Just dial in your sound and go! Aux in and
              headphone out are included on the front pannel. The back pannel has no line out or extention speaker out, but the amp sounds great through
              a SM57 to my board.

              Sound: CH 1 , 'LEAD' goes from spanky clean to as raunchy as you want. The EQ section is sweet with the 'freq & mid shift' options. So many sounds and tones are at your fingertips here that you can get a nice Blackface/Twin tone to a Marshall roar. With 120 watts (60watt X 2), it has enough power to really stand out and sing. The 12" acoustic speakers sound great and really "talk" to my guitars at any volume. I have had no problems with feedback, buzz or mud. This is an 'in your face' amp with some serious tone.

              CH 2, 'RHYTHM' is nice and very clean. I can dial up tones that sound just as good as any fender amp I have ever played through. So far, I
              have ran a Fender Strat, Godin SD and a Martin LXM through it and I am very happy with the tone and overall clean sound. I already have stomp boxes, so the 16 FX section I probably wont be using much, but it does offer some cool sounds and gives the amp it's own voice. FX has real nice reverb, delay in several combinations.

              Bottom Line: This is a great value for an amp in this class and well worth the money spent. Factory three year warranty and at this price, it
              paid for itself on its first gig. Buy it !

                For the MF price, this 2x12" 120w combo amp can't be beat - many similar Peavey, Orange, Line 6, and Marshall amps have much less power & only 1 speaker.
                I just got mine yesterday and gave it a little work out this afternoon - found that within 10-15 feet of the amp at a volume of 3 or higher - it is a feedback monster. Also, it's a bit of learning curve to get the sounds one wants, and certainly a bit tinny compared to a tube amp - still a nice addition to any collection for this low price!

                      I recommend this amp with the highest praise. Fantastic tone and volume for most playing applications. Plenty of flexibility in sound design. Effects are very musical. Bought a Hosa 2 button foot switch for channel switching.

                      Subsequently ordered the 4x12 cab for even more headroom.

                      Price is unbelievable for the value. It's like a Twin without the tube headaches.

                      Musicians Friend staff was more than helpful and I am 1000 percent satisfied.

                      What a fantastic bargain.

                        I'm not a solid state guy so I was a little concerned about picking this up but for 200.00 it was a no brainier. I needed a solid state amp that I could do gigs with and not worry about it failing or getting stolen. Let me say this, Wow! This thing is insane. It's loud and both channels sound great. Do yourself a favor and throw a couple of vintage 30 in. I personally prefer Guitar Warehouse Speakers, but that makes a world of difference. I have no idea why they are selling these for so cheap so snag one before they figure out they can sell them for double the price easily. The crunch channel can get anything you want and the scoop button puts you in thrash heaven. The clean channel is awesome and the effects are great. Buy this amp!
