Now come on lets dont take the G-5 seriously for live application, it is what it is! Its not for anything else other than individual practice and testing. Or maybe a private little semi acoustic jam or something. Distortion is more useful when set at lower gain. P90's sound better than humbuckers for the G-5, I imagine single coils would sound good too. Knowing which guitar sounds best thru what amp is common place, even th G5 has its niche. Nice little amp as long as you know its boundaries. Understanding what thie G-5 can and cant do is critical, as with any amp. Overall sound is ok, having reverb would bring it higher numbers. An open back space to carry the adaptor would have been a plus too. Also the 9v power input jack should have been placed on the back or side, not the front. All in all, I'm satisfied , it is what I expected.
Input, gain, volume, tone, distortion switch, headphone out, comes with a 9v adaptor, or use a 9v battery to power up(located inside and countersunk in the back panel). Has a real handle, rubber legs, protectuve corners. nice grill and logo. Light weight. About 4 x 10 x 10 in size. And closed back design. If it had Reverb I would have bumped it up a number.
Seems a very good build for a little guy, quite sturdy. No issues in cosmetics.
Rated at a 9 because I knew what I was getting and thats all I wanted. Useing it for low volume individual practice and testing when I work on my gear. Very portable and thats a plus, I already have have everything in between up to a full stack+.

I didn't expect much and I was not disappointed. It's a good cheap way to get amplification for your guitar. If you don't need the small size and portability, try a larger all electric model.
It will amplify your guitar. You're just about required to use gain in order to get any volume.
It seems well built enough.
For the price, it's a good deal if you don't have any other amplification. I have a small fender amp that I went back to immediately after trying this. I don't see when I'll use it, but it might come in handy if I'm ever away from electricity.

Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

This is a good option for a very small, very portable practice amp. The sound is not great, but it's good for trying new ideas or just bending strings. It's an inexpensive practice amp, so that's what you get. The sound is better with head phones, but that's not typically an option for me. I'm happy with the purchase, it's what I expected for the price. You want 100 watts of Marshal tube crunch, buy a Marshal tube amp. You want to hear your guitar over the washing machine, cleaning your clothes for your trip to the daily grind, then this is a great amp for the price.

    Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    I love this amp! It has options for portable battery power, or a 110v plug-in power supply (included). The sound is great for small gatherings on the patio at home, a small studio for lessons, and personal practice. I haven't tried it for larger events. The battery can drain quickly if you crank the volume up, but the sound is very nice and clear on 110v power, and the overdrive gives a great boost.

    My favorite practice amp!

    By 

    from America

    Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    Great amp. Skip lunch and just buy the amp. Its so portable, its the size of a lunchbox!
    The controls are basic. The best feature is its portability. It won't wake up the house, but it has good tone, and is FUN to play through! After warming up with this amp I'll go plug into a bigger amp. You can take it with you and the sound is good on all settings. Its louder than the Smokey Amp, which I also love. For the money as a stupid deal of the day, its a best buy.
    Its very sturdy. Everything worked great out of the box. Its pretty, well finished, and everything works. It seems quite durable and will last for my purposes for years. (don't play your bass through it!)What more do you need for the price?
    I am very happy with this amp. Other practice amps with more features cost more. If you can live and have fun with basic features, you won't be dissappointed with this amp!

    ROUGE G5 5W Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp

    By 

    from SI NY

    Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    You can take this little portable amp on your canoe trip. If it falls overboard, no loss. If it works you can play your guitar in the outdoors. Takes a 9Volt battery. If you only get to use it once that's cool.

    I wouldn't buy this.

    from Bellingham+Centralia

    Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    I wanted an amp to busk with, but this is simply too quiet. My cohort has a Vox, the 3w mini one, and it's about twice as loud as this--even when I crank it. The tone is OK, but not good. Simply put, I'm buying a new battery powered amp.

    Don't Expect Too Much...

    By 

    from Denton, Texas

    Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    Usable power on "distort" only, but can be adjusted to a fairly clean sound. A simple reverb would help make this a handier unit.
    Got this as "Stupid Deal" and didn't expect too much. I was not wrong. The $19.95 price is about what it is worth. Only by using the "distort" button do you get any volume at all. If it is on "clean" the guitar is louder than the amp at full volume (using a powered pre-amp acoustic/electric).
    That said -- the little amp is ok for what it is.
    I use it with a Zoom A4 to get some reverb/chorus. The portability and battery power feature is its strength.
    Seems well made and durable.
    See above.

    G5 5Watt battery poawered combo Amp

    Comments about Rogue G5 5W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is a good value.
    I recieved the well packed G5 and immediately opened it. Mind you, it's not a huge amp, it's a portable battery powered amp, so it doesn't have a lot of features. However it does have a Gain control, Volume control and tone control. It also has a simple overdrive switch. The sound is more than what you'd expect for the price, however it is a small practice amp so it isn't going to compete with the big boys in tone. What it does offer is just fine though for practice and it is fun to mess with. I tried out my one pedal that I use consistently, a compressor and the pedal did what it's supposed to and the amp did what it's supposed to. This amp is a good value for the money.
    It's nicely finished and solid.
    Good little amp for little money.
