« Poor choice »

I understand the reason for amps like these. These are for beginner players try out the guitar and their parents only shelling out as much money and they think will keep their kids out of their hair. These amps probably sell like hit cakes since they are so cheap and you can buy them basically in any Sam Ash or Guitar Center.

One cool thing bout this amp is that you can hook up a cd player or MP3 player of some sort and jam along to the music you own to help your chops. This allows you to play in time with your favorite music.

SOUNDS

I have to say this thing sounds horrible. The sound even for the clean isn't very good and this is a Fender amp which is known for their cleans. The dirty channel doesn't get any better either. This thing sounds so horrible and thin metallic sounding.

It doesn't matter what guitar you play through this amp it is going to sound terrible. You can through a pedal in front and get a much better and usable tone. I recommend getting an AMT pedal of some kind or a Zvex pedal and this will allow you to negate the terrible tone that is nature from this amp.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these amps come in at around $60 which is a great price for your parents who are looking to fork over some money on a future rock star. Not a bad price for a kid learning to play the guitar. I would recommend shelling over another $40 and get something that is more usable like a Peavey, roland, or another Fender that has amp modeling and effects inside in.
