I have had this guitar for 2 years and it has never let me down. The pickups sound great through any amp and or effects pedal. The body is thin and light enough to throw about on stage and strong enough to withstand bumps and bangs. The bag has lasted me these 2 years as well but if you want to look after the guitar really well, I would get a hardcase. As for the amp - good things come in small packages would be the best way to sum up this great little amp. As loud or as quiet as you want, it packs loads of punch on a high gain setting but can still charm the birds out of the trees when it is put on a lower setting. I have put microphones, basses and acoustics though this little amp. They all sounded amazing.
