i play many styles, mostly heavy metal/prog metal/shred and its perfect!! i also can use it for blues well, and there are some good jazz tones. it has a reasonable acoustic simulator, but dont dump that dreadnaught!! sturdy build. if it were lost or stolen id probably buy its big daddy the 1500G or invest in some rack mount equiptment. it would be cool to have another 4 buttons below the ones on it to control the drive amp/modulations etc.. separately, like in individual modeaswell as being able to change the banks with the origional 4 pedals.
