Your general opinion of this product.
In general, a nice amp that sounds quite good, but for a 90 watt amplifier, would not say it 'puts out'. The master volume and gain controls must be set at 8 or above to get some push out of it.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
It feels like a tube amp (heavy at 40 pounds), seems to be really solid. The look is awesome, in burgundy leatherette (vinyl?) with a retro-looking grille cloth.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The amp has several effects, including reverb. You can come up with some interesting sounds.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
What ever you want with a separate multi-band equalizer for each of the 2 channels.
How was the action out of the box?
How did the stain or paint job look?
It's a really pretty retro-style.
How has it stood up over time?
