I had this amp since the beginning of February and have used it heavily in rehearsals, gigs, and even in major league texas thunderstorms, and it has performed perfectly. I am happy and glad this unit can take a pounding and still perform well. At first I thought that having to manually change the effect settings on the fly would be a major drag, but its much better than I thought. Most of us have a number of effects we use during a song if even that much, but I've adapted to use one effect during a song if needed and concentrate more on my playing and enjoying the jams. And, using a Live Wire 2 button footswitch makes things easier simply on or off! Keep It Simply Stupid (KISS) is the operative word here, I dont know about other guitarists, but I believe we can get caught up on to much tech, and miss out on more pure guitar playing. This amp or any amp can do that, but its reliable and this review is for that purpose. Best $299 Ive spent in a long time!

I am a weekend guy who does not play much any more. I was looking for an inexpensive amp that got good ratings. I went to my local GC fairly certain I would take this home. When I demo amps in the store I always set the EQ halfway and all volume controls down before I even turn on the power. I started off with the clean channel and noticed it was pretty loud as soon as I began turning up the volume knob. I switched to the OD channel and turned up its volume and was so startled I almost dropped the guitar. You know those dots that surround the knob... before the indicator even reached the first dot it was very very loud. I played with it for a few more minutes seeing how hard it would be to keep a lid on the volume but I never got to really listen to its sound quality. I knew I would never be able to use this at home. If you are thinking of a practice amp for home you may want to pass this one by but if you want something loud for playing out definitely check it out. I ended up trying the Yamaha THR10 and it seemed loud with very good sound quality even while I played through it in the large main store display area. I ended up ordering the Yamaha, it should be plenty loud for me and a lot easier to carry if I ever need to leave the house with an amp.

        This amp works fine for my uses of practice and occasional live work. Has a good clean sound , plenty of volume, and is not too heavy to move around. I use it with an hd500x and they pair together nicely.

            Would rather have a lighter amp with the same number of settings, but I guess you need the two speakers for the volume. Overall a good purchase.

              Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo Amp:

              I find that most reviews are about how the amp doesn't fit super hard metal band or hard rock band. I am not a rocker. I am a country picker and rhythm player. I use a Fender® Telecaster Custom guitar. I like D'Addario strings because of their warmth and not so much shrill treble. I finger pick a lot and I use a thin pick also. I had been playing through a 1986 Peavey Bandit 112 Scorpion since I bought it new, and the power board finally died, so I wanted something that had that country sound like it did. I tried some 1-12 and 2-12 Fenders, but the controls and tone were a little flat line and had no perk to the sound at all. Probably would be good for a Strat in a rock band, but, not for country. So I bought this Accoustic® 120. I got it home and started playing and I played around with the tone controls for about an hour and it came right in to that sound I was looking for. For my band it may be a little on the loud side but with proper stage placement, it will do nicely. If you are looking for a really clean sound to do some strumming and picking, this is the one you are looking for to make that sound. One funny thing when I was tuning it up. It started buzzing like a speaker was bad and the paper cone was torn. I tried everything, even calling the store and telling them, and I was going to take it back. But I loved this thing so much, that I wanted to find out why it was buzzing on certain notes. It tuned out that the packing people threw two bags of those crystals into the cabinet. They happened to land between the speaker frame and the cone. Once I took those out, everything was Jake. I am gonna love this amp. I hope I can find a cover for it somewhere. Seems that covers are that easy to find anymore.

              First i play in a garage band , mostly blues
              I like being able to easily switch from rhythm to lead with one pedal. special effects are good.Amp is LOUD
              I had a hard time finding a foot pedal that worked with is. I ended up building one . works great.
              bad news I get a load pop when turning off the amp ( volumes all the way down), but I can live with it

                  This amp is amazing! In my opinion, it is better than the modeling amps made by Orange, Marshall, and Line 6. I honestly can't believe this was only 299. I have always loved orange and when looking for a modeling amp I was dead set on the Orange Crush 60 Watt but when I played this I was amazed. Personally I think this amp blew the Crush out of the water! Amazing cleans and overdrive! I'm also a huge fan of the Peavey 6505 and I love the gain on this amp just as much. For the price you are getting one heck of an amp.

                  I got this in 2014 .
                  I had a peavey duece amp (tube/solid state) for ,well since 1984 and loved that amp but it was heavy ,so I decided to get this amp and ,there is no looking back .
                  It works well with my 12 string acoustic's and my electrics .
                  IT has well balanced tones and can crank -if needed but I rarely have it past 4 or 5
                  I love the tones and sounds I get out of this baby and the effects are good,I sam still playing with those .

                  I have to say -well done Acoustic ,well done and at 42 lbs ,it won't crack de back ..Guy -from the band -UNISON/LAUGHING STRANGER ......
