The Vox AC30VR fails in every way except looks.

Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The product looks great, but looks are deceiving. This amp has no testicular fortitude!! Not worthy of the Vox name in my opinion!
How has it stood up over time?
It came on fine but I sent the amp back!!
Your general opinion of this product.
If you want an amp with balls, growl and bite, don't waste your time with this Vox AC30VR!! I was so disappointed, the sound was brittle and I could not get any punch out of the amp. I tried very hard even mic'ing it for my gig and it sucked so bad!!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The tone was bright, brittle and had no punch. The amp sounded like a crappy distorted effects processor. It was such a waste of time!!
How did the stain or paint job look?
The amp looked great but sounded like crap!!
How was the action out of the box?
