Yeah... this amp pretty much rocks. My rics/jazz/longhorn all sound great. I find the key to good tone is learning how to not use scoop, and properly dial in the resonance and range knobs. Unlike a earlier poster... I found that the harder you push the main volume, the better the amp sounds. Bedroom volumes do not do it justice... tube amps were ment to be played loud... and this head ALWAYS give me a huge smile when I play it live. But then I do like grit in my tone (I play rock). I find this amp will give you ar more buttery tube tone, but you need to play with the resonance and range. Lots of variety in tone for a tube amp.
