    I've got a line on a 65 AC50. The amp has 4 inputs and 2 channels with vol,treble, & bass per channel . I know this amp does cleans very well . My questions are : How well can this amp do the crunch and overdrive thing for rock and blues ? Does this amp get along with singles and humbuckers or have a certain pickup preference . How well does this amp take pedals ?

    Hit Youtube and seek out Charlie Sexton. He uses an AC-50 and a 4-12. Mighty Riteous tones, but at stage volumes for OD, and using a box at that.

    Gain is a little less than my JMP 50 watt, but it slices a bit more for chord work, for solo's you could kick in a pedal with a mid hump, it ate pedals up,
