I picked up a Maestro GA-16T a couple days ago, and so far I love it! It stays pretty nice and clean with my Strat up to 5 (haven't cranked it louder as I live in an apartment). But it takes pedals really well! I got some very nice sounds hitting it with my D*A*M Red Rooster. Also sounds great with my old Fuzz Face. Overall, VERY happy with it thus far!
