I have only been playing the guitar for 5 years, and I am slowly upgrading my equipment as I get better. I had my eye on this amp for a few years just waiting for the right time to get it. Now that I have it, I quickly realized that I should not have waited. This amp is awesome! I play a Breedlove Limited Edition Pursuit Concert 25th Anniversary Acoustic-Electric, which really comes alive when I plug into the Behringer. The amp is very user friendly, and the quality of the construction is excellent. If you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, you cannot go wrong with this amp. I look forward to many years of playing through this amp.
