The amp is really loud as well. being that it is solid state the amps tend to be able to hit louder volumes naturally. This thing is rated at 75 watts which is a bit much if you ask me. Being i think the tone is terrible as it is and having 75 watts of that is a bit too much to handle.
You have a master volume, a gain and another volume for the gain. Then you have the standard treble, middle, and bass, with an added reverb control knob. You also have a speaker output if you want to run in into another 1x12, 2x12, or 4x12 speaker cabinet.

You will get a decent tone for a solid state from this amp. If you are used to tube amps then this will not be your cup of tea. You will find yourself getting real irritated at the solid state tone that will eventually lead you to turning the amp off.
Any old guitar will do with this amp. Again tone is not the answer with this amp...practice is the answer. If you have a junk guitar or even a decent Gibson Les Paul or Fender Stratocaster you will find that it doesn't matter too much. The tone is cheap, thin, and metallic. It will not be warm and thick or any other description you would give a sweet thick tube amp distortion.
Since these amps have been discontinued I have no idea what the going used rate is for these amps. Since it is solid state I can't imagine it being over $250 for a used amp.
I would recommend this amp to a Fender amp lover who needs a cheap practice amp that will get an ok clean tone and lousy distortion tone. You won't break the bank buying one of these amps either. They are cheaply made and cheaply priced.
