    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.

      Good for the Money

      By 

      from Rainier, WA

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

      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

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

          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.

          Comments about Acoustic Lead Guitar Series G120 DSP 120W Guitar Combo 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 ......

          Very Impressed early on

          By 

          from Chicago, Il

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

          I bought one of these during the end of the year sale. What an amazing value. The amp is solidly built and sort of retro looking. I played my 86 MiM Strat through it for about 30 minutes. I didn't have time to check out all the various effects. What I can tell you is that this amp is loud and has great cleans at volume. I then added gain a little bit at a time, and messed with my tone knobs on the Strat. Just wow is all I can say. All the EQ settings were at zero, and I still got some awesome sounds from this amp. I grabbed it as a spare, because the price and reviews were so good. My other amps, an 86 Fender Princeton Chorus I bought new from GC way back then, and a Fender Champion 100 are both great too. I'm a solid state guy, as I can get all the tones I like out of all three of these. If you're considering the Acoustic, go play through one. It's a great value priced amp. That's all I got, happy playing.

          Great Amp - Got it for a steal

          By 

          from Los Angeles, CA

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

          I grabbed one of these amps from my local Guitar Center when they had a sale. Managed to pick it up for $199.99+tax. Can't beat that price. I'm a beginner so I cannot give you an experts view on this amp, but boy is it loud. I barely have the volume control up from minimum without the neighbors complaining. Not a bad buy, seems to do the trick.

          Great Amp/

          By 

          from Fairfax VA

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

          After having a Fender Ultimate Chorus for many years, which I enjoyed, it recently started having some intermittent problems. So I decided it was time to by a new amp, having just purchased a new Taylor T5Z and a PRS SE which are both incredible sounding guitars. I had been using a Digitech multi effects pedal for a variety of good clean sounds. I sing and play rhythm and piano in a working band. Using the effects pedal left me unsatisfied because it diminished the beautiful natural sounds of the Taylor T5z and the PRS. Enter the Acoustic G120; The Acoustic G120 brought them back to life with and incredible crisp, natural sound no matter which of the 16 on board effects I use. We buy guitars for their individual quality of sound and tones. This is by far the best solid state amp I have played through, for that natural quality and allowing the guitars themselves to shine through with their different respective tones, even when adding a slap back delay or chorus or any of the many effects. Thanks Acoustic for a gem of an amp. I can't wait to perform with it this week !! 5 + stars from me !!

          Nice little amp!

          By 

          from Charlotte, NC

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

          I took a flyer on this amp, and for the sale price of $250 at my local Guitar Center, I figured why not. Glad I did, as this little powerhouse is more than capable. It is a strong 120w amp, and will hold it's own with much larger, more expensive amps. I thought the 16 onboard effects would be cheesy, but to my surprise, were pretty effective. You can shape a lot of sounds out of it, and it suits most of my playing styles. Very clean highs and acceptable low ends as well. If there is any downside to this amp, it is that it does not come with a footswitch for channel switching. I ended up getting a Hosa FSC-385 2 button latching footswitch and cable for $30 and problem solved. This amp is light enough to transport around and it is plenty loud enough to gig with. Invest in a couple effects pedals and you are good to go. I bought a '59 Fender Bassman pedal and the sounds I can get out of this thing are amazing! All in all, I find this amp to be a real bang for the buck.

          Great Gig Amp

          By 

          from Greeley Colorado

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

          Great Tones!!! Good cleans, great distortions, and even better effects. However with any product there are some warnings to be had... The distortion has more of a fuzz distortion feel than the typical distortion (which I preferred anyway). It also does not come with a foot switch for channel switching or turning the effects on or off. There is a foot switch jack on the back of the amp for you to connect a two button foot switch but it does not come with one. Minus the foot switch set back this amp is great. I can't find any problems with it. The mid shift button gives the amp a variety of tones and the original distortion sound gives it a full tone feel compared to that of other solid state amps and easily competes with high end solid state and tube amps. I highly recommend this lead series line of amps. Used plenty other brands like line 6, Peavey, and Marshall, but really love the way this one has a tone of its own that makes it original and not the same thing in every solid state amp. This amp ROCKS
