I wasn't surprised that this guitar sounded great clean through my deluxe reverb. Perfect for 60's rock. It also sounded great using a Blues Driver pedal. The guitar can also produce some very nice mellow tones as well. Mine needed some setup as I prefer very low action and a couple of frets needed a little work. I play Taylor acoustics and I found the neck on this guitar very comfortable for my average size hands. After the setup all I can say is I love this guitar, a wonderful versatile instrument. A great value.
