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!!!

Decent little amp

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...Read complete review

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:

Tis is a really powerful amp with a great sound. I mainly run it 'clean' and get all of my effects from my pedal board and RP55. I swapped this amp with my Marshall G3OR CD and it squealed like nothing I have ever heard before. I started eliminating pedals, my XENYX 802 mixer until I was down to just my strat straight into the amp...strum a chord and it kept on squealing. I was about to RMA it but got side-tracked, left the amp on with nothing attached to it for about a half hour. Decided to give it one ore try -- cabled the strat and all went well...really clean sound. Attached one pedal at a time...all was well. After all was said and done, I have all of my pedals, pre-amp and mixer attached and no problems, except...When I first power the amp on there is a light static for a few seconds, then it's gone. I guess you just have to let it warm up. All in all, Glad I bought it.

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

    Let me say first off that I love this amp. Which is why the disappointment in my uncommon situation. I got this amp as a SDOTD special three years ago so it was a great buy. I bought it as a practice amp for the music room. This way I am not putting hours on my beloved V50 tube amp. Its also a suitable backup IF I have an issue at a gig.

    It is loud.. VERY LOUD!...for anything that I want to use it for. While I like the onboard DSP, it may have evolved into a out of warranty cost repair issue.

    Because of my setup I know that I haven't put anywhere close to 200 hours on this amp in that last 3 years. About a week ago I was playing it at a low volume and changing between channels. While it was still on the dirty channel the amp switched back to the clean channel. I thought that the channel button had popped out of place. I confirmed that the selector switch was still engaged. After some troubleshooting I confirmed that it now only has the clean channel available.

    It has a 3 year warranty (one of the selling points as far as I am concerned at the time of purchase). I looked up my order and find out my date of purchase WAS three years ago. However I am 1 week out from that three years.

    So now my reasoning kicks in since I saved 100 on the SDOTD. I think if I find a local repair place (possible warranty service center) I can get the switch replaced and still get complete functionality out of it. Here is what I find out - In warranty Acoustic will do a hot swap since they do not have any state side repair depots (warranty or otherwise). The solid state repair place tells me that since this model has DSP the switching is more than likely digitally controlled and would require a main board replacement - again, something they can't repair due to part availability. So there it is.

    I would be less upset about this if -
    I didn't really like this amp
    My low usage hours on it
    Timing of warranty expiration
    DSP makes repair not cost effective

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

    Volume control is way too sensitive,it's all or nothing with level. Also at random there is a very loud popping sound when playing. Other peoples' reviews noted a popping sound when powering on and off. I have this issue too but can eliminate it by turning down the effects level pot.Otherwise amp has decent sound and power. Got mine for under two hundred clams so I will live with the quirks. Sorry I cant recommend this to a friend since it does have these issues.

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

    This amp is THE hidden gem of the solid state stuff on the market right now. It's ideal for the player who prefers an analog setup to digital modeling, and who likes to use pedals and outboard gear for tones. It does basically two things really well right out of the box: a crystal clear clean tone similar to a Roland JC-120, and a tight high-gain metal tone reminiscent of Pantera (it nails the Dimebag tone even easier than the Randalls on the market now). If those aren't what you're looking for you can combine it with any quality OD or distortion pedal and generate whatever tone you dig without issue. The clean tone is the perfect foundation for that. The high and low sensitivity inputs and parametric mid control allows for a tonal flexibility that many more expensive amps lack. The two channels are footswitchable and it has an effects loop. It is extremely loud...turning the volume up above one is deafening, and it will definitely keep up with your band. The built-in effects are pretty decent...basic reverbs, delays, and chorus...and designed to serve as subtle, always-on effects in the background. The only real issue it has is its a bit noisy on the distorted channel but you can put a noise gate in the FX loop to control this. Absolute great buy and a solid piece of kit for any working musician in need of loud, reliable gear.

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

      Saw the Black Friday price of this and couldn't pass it up. Have had a 4x12 cab in the past and was excellent quality. This was really no different except during the unboxing I found 2- of the washers floating around in the box that should have been under the screws. Pulled out the 2 screws missing the washers and reinstalled-No biggie!! Plugged it in and tried some settings in the manual then tweaked to my liking. Sounds great! Tone reminded me of my Mesa Boogie. And it does have tube like chirp sounds at times too. This amp can sound 80s Metal to Country clean and pretty much anything in between. In a portable package of 42 lbs. And it is deafening LOUD! But also has a Headphone input for late night practice. The effects are kind of weak but are VERY useable!! I find the #11 to my liking. Then again I am a tone chaser and don't use heavy amounts of effects anyway. The Gain channel has minor white noise and the Clean channel is clear as a bell. I really LOVE the speakers these have as was the 4x12 I used to have. They just sound GREAT!! I missed that. For the price of the 4X12 cab I bought this instead, And GLAD I did. It's worth every penny!!

        This is a great sounding amp for the price. I have owned several expensive tube amps that have died onstage at some point. Solid state has come a long way the sweepable mid control allows you to dial it in just right. I like the delays all of the effects are usable. I also use my pedalboard. I'm pretty impressed with it.
