I own the 2007 model.
I previously had an old 15-watt Samick. So I immediately noticed the difference in output power ^^
Very easy to use!
I needed less than 10 min. to set it, even though I'm a beginner.
I just had to take a look inside the user's manual to know what's the function of each control.
First of all, I have to mention that my guitar is no wonder (Cort G210)!
BUT: The amp is the most important component to get a good tone.
The distortion sound is just great: I don't use my distortion pedal anymore (Boss SD-1)! The distortion is quite fat: it's made for metal or big rock rather than for pop music. Even if you are not a metal freak (like me ^^) you might come to like it.
The distortion of the amp is its main pro.
Clean sound... is also good! I don't use it a lot since I heard the distortion sound. I can say the clean sound is round, soft and warm (with the switch in "warm" position).
Both switches are really cool, both in clean and lead modes. They give you a wide sound range.
Which sounds do you prefer / hate?
I prefer the distortion sound, as you might have already guessed.
Con: the speaker generates distortion when the lows are strongly boosted...
I give it an 8 because of this con and because it isn't really meant for my music style. However, tweaking the settings allows you to get a lot of different tones.
I've been using it since... yesterday.
I think I will use it for many years.
It's perfect for beginners who have been playing guitar for several years and like different music styles.
Don't hesitate: buy it!
PS: I also have the footswitch and I recommend it to all buyers.
