In my 36 years of playing, performing and tinkering I have not found an amp that does what this does. For the money, and I'm a bargain hunter, this is most likely the last amp I'll need to buy. I own Taylors, epiphones, washburns, takemines, have owned gibson, fender and ibanez. Self contained demo studio in my house with all the fixin's. When compared with all the big name amps in the big name stores and a few boutique amps in a few boutiques, this thing is easily as good, if not better in some categories, especially for the price. It can be purchased as a complete amp, or, kit with, or without a head cab. If it were stolen, or, destroyed I'd order another without hesitation. If you are looking for D*%ble tone without the enormous price tag, or, mind-numbing search of the original, get this amp!
