Bought from Musician's Friend for $89.99. Wanted to see if I could get good acoustic sounds out of my SG Classic equipped with P-90s.

There is a pretty vast array of tonal options, and the construction is typical Boss -- rugged, compact and durable.

Forget about getting acoustic sounds out of this pedal. You won't even come close, even with single-coil pickups. You *can* get some interesting variations on clean tones using this pedal, though. I just haven't found one that I can use on a recording yet. To be fair, this pedal was designed for live work, which I don't do very much -- still, when I do play live, I'd rather play acoustic-electric guitars so I can get the tone I want.

Very good.

This pedal and I are a mismatch. I haven't found any occasion where I need to use it yet. I've done some interesting experiments by mixing this pedal with distorted electric tones, but overall I'd say this pedal is not useful for me. Still, for good construction and an admirable effort to bridge the acoustic-electric gap, I give it a 3.
