Proud new 7-100 owner and I love it! I play a lot of slide, and of course some blues, and this thing nails it. Killer harp amp too, although I can't play harmonica. I don't know if I'm going to be able to leave well enough alone seeing how easy it is to convert the preamp out to an external speaker out. Especially since I've got a 1x12 cab and a 4ohm 12" speaker just sitting at home. BTW, the little piggy kills with an Esquire!
