This guitar is nothing fancy. But you should know that while buying it. It is an electro acoustic, but it has a battery near the jack entrance, which you need to supply in order to amplify the guitar. Yes it will work with a clean electric guitar amp with zero drive and high treble, but you can adjust that from the guitar too. If you don't put the drive on zero (even on a clean channel) it will not sound good. But it does sound alright with the correct adjustments. Acoustically too, I was surprised how loud it was when I got it, not a very big guitar either. Bottom line, it will do the job.
