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 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.

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

    Rogue's G5 is sleek and comparable to other G5's....it is indeed warm and , well... "micable" !
    Rogue does that. This may be one of their classics...along with some synths , guitars, and a few other big hits...now, if and for how long the fidelity holds up( for me )....that (to be) is the question.

      Bought this from Musicians Friends a couple of yrs ago went to use it and the speaker went from sound to lower and lower and lower until could not hear it anymore. Phone jack still works but why did the speaker go?

        This amplifier is nice and solid with great audio sound. I use it for practicing playing the electric guitar. Mine came complete with a 9-volt battery and the whole order was packaged nicely. This was my first order with Musician's Friend and I look forward doing business with them again soon.

          It's not 5 watts as claimed. It's less then 1 watt.
          Good headphone practice amp only.
          it came with an AC power supply which is good because I can use that with my Fender Mini Deluxe which is also only 1 watt but sounds better than the Rogue G5.

                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.
