It's a decent practice amp. The CD player input allows you to play along any song you're studying and the sound is good enough for home practice. If I could go back in time, I wouldn't buy it again. I would get an AVT series Marshall amp instead.

It's a small solid state amp, good for home practicing. The lack of footswitchable channels is a pain, though.
I usually practice using this amp with my Ibanez JEM 555WH or my Strat. I run a Zoom 505II for effects and it sounds good enough for practicing. It isn't an amp you take to a gig, though. The bass frequencies are a little messy because of the tiny speakers. But for practice only, it's good enough.
It's easy to use overall. The knobs are simple and you won't have much trouble finding your way around. But it's missing a footswitch.
The construction isn't solid enough as the high end Marshalls and Fenders. I wouldn't play it outside my home.
