Good design, decent value.

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Looks good, but haven't had it long enough to tell.
How has it stood up over time?
Haven't had it long enough to know - seems well-built.
Your general opinion of this product.
A good all around acoustic guitar amp. Loud enough to work in a full band situation on a small or medium sized club stage if the band plays at moderate volume levels. XLR outputs on back for feeding the mixer. I play in a band that sometimes does "semi-unplugged" sets using a full drum kit and electric bass but with acoustic guitars. This works well for that and cuts through. I am giving it four stars instead of five because it does not come with a cover (and it would be easy to break of a knob because of the design), and the effects are merely adequate.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
It's very light for power output, the ten degree angle of the cabinet works very well to get the sound to ear level on an average sized club stage.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Fairly easy to get a decent tone out of my Tacoma with a fishman prefix pick up.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Not bad for its price.
How was the action out of the box?
The knobs worked smoothly and seem solid enough.
