Stopped by a local shop today and they had one in stock. Tried it for about 10 minutes, and after 1 minute knew it was going home with me.
It seems to just be “more” of your amp and guitar. A tele through a Fender combo was dialing up lots of good Neil Young tones. It does the 70’s rock distortion and transparent drive thing too. It’s a little loose on the low end, and definitely not a refined sounding distortion.
Anyways, I’ve been taking my AC15 out to gig and it doesn’t like my usual distortions as much as my Fender amps, and it seems like this is going to be a good fit.
