    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 reasons I gave it a glance:
            owning the acoustic 8x10 cab for my bass and realizing how well it was constructed and also how Acoustic as a brand puts the musician (for instance the 8x10 is made to be loaded by your self with out strain

            needed an amp that I would not out grow in a year or so(we all hate that)
            killer price

            behringer price fender quality.

            THE GOOD:
            simple intuitive controls
            16 useable effects(yep i said useable not 2 good ones and 14 fillers)
            headphone amp sounds really close to what comes out of the speakers
            gain channel doesnt sound weak like most SS amps
            clean channel sounds superb
            light weight for its size and built like the workhorse it is
            tons of mid range tweaking
            clean lows and crisp(but not tinny) highs
            loud yep its loud possibly too loud

            The Bad:
            2 channel footswitch not included (or to my knowledge not even offered) any 1/4" stereo plugged footswitch will work though so no real biggy there

            at the lowest volume its simply too loud for night time practice (but the headphone amp is really good so again its a minor kind of thing)

            no extension cab out, which means if you have a nice 4x12 laying around youll have to make a ext out port by unplugging the spade terminals and connecting them to a home made box (if your good with some simple diy skills its again a no biggy

            final thoughts:

            its much more than you would expect it to be do your self a favor and at least play through it for a few minutes at your local shop. Acoustic has been around in the background nearly as long as your top dogs and they have never dissapointed

            the tone you want the price you'll love and the worksmanship that makes it worthy of its namesake

            if its good enough for Rudy Sarzo its worth a second glance just saying

              I can't say I know all that much about amps, but I can get great tones out of this amp and it is powerful also. I mainly play chords on clean settings and sing so I can't really say I work it too hard, but I have heard quite a few amps that give a pretty thin, almost unnatural sound on clean settings... This one gives nice rich, full tones. I like it and for the money, you can't go wrong. You can't even come close in power and speaker size in a used amp... I looked. well worth the money.

                This amp has few "features", but will give you a loud, even VERY loud sound, with no breakup/distortion. Tone quality excellent. "Is what it is". If you can play, and have good axes, you can't go wrong with this product. Very light for a 2x12 120 watt amp. Around 40 lbs. The "lead" channel seems to add breakup; avoid. EFX seems only good for basic reverb. That's OK by me; don't care. You are not going to find an amp as loud, clean, and quiet "as shipped" for less $$. If this summary interests you, get one!

                  I bought this amp. to replace an amp. I brought to the church I attend. After getting it home, I was amazed by the clean channel on this little amp.. I ended up bringing it to the church, and bringing the other one back home. I have several amplifiers, all with their own great qualities. This amp. has some very nice built in effects, a frequency knob, that is quite nice to vary tones, and plenty of power for a relatively small amplifier. I did not spend much time with the dirty side of this amplifier as I was so enthralled with the clean side, so I will not comment much on that aspect. Fortunately, Musicians Friend included a great little demonstration video of this amp., so you can witness how much variety this little amp. has to offer. I am totally pleased with this purchase. The amp. has a great look to it as well.

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

                        I have owned probably 25 tube amps (mostly Marshall and Fender) throughout my many years of playing and have jammed or played through most amps of the past and present. So, I guess you could say that I have heard alot of amp tones. That being said, I purchased this amp as a back-up amp, a quick jam amp, for practice at home and because it was a real bargain. First off, this thing is plenty loud and it gets loud quickly. You don't have to turn the volume up much to obtain practice or gig level volumes. Overall, the tone you can achieve with it is a solid "good". I plugged in a no-frills strat with factory single coils and with the gain maxed I was in classic rock teritory with plenty of mid and bottom end. When I used a guitar with more powerful pickups or humbuckers I was into much heavier territory. The clean sound is also "good". I checked out all of the effects and they all sound ok. Not really useful while performing since you have to turn a knob to change an effect/setting or turn it off. Probably will keep it on one of the reverb settings and use my own pedals if I use it outside of the house. The amp seems like it is solid and it looks pretty cool. I did tighten a couple screws that were not completely tightened in the manufacturing process.
                        Overall, this is a great deal for a 2X12", 120w, on-board effects amplifier. It was on sale when I ordered mine and I just couldn't pass this one up. Now, where did I put those ear plugs....

                        A string of bad experiences with tube amps led me down the road to solid-state amplification; they're reliable and built like tanks. I have found that this amp is most useful when playing country music or heavy metal music. If you want to play blues, rock or any other close relatives of said aforementioned genres of music, I highly recommend using distortion/overdrive pedals to color your sound. The Lead channel is too thin and grainy to properly play these styles of music.
