Hey Jim - I am very happy with the amp - so far I've run a les paul and a tele through it, and it has nailed every sound I wanted it to. With the Master Volume and attenuator function, I am able to dial in any gain sound I want, and use the guitar's volume to control gain, which means I won't have to re-learn how to get 'my sound' every time I set up in a different sized room! I can use one amp for any practice or gig I am likely to get. Proud owner of FM-763! Dave D. (Colorado)
