The Professional outfit was sold as a guitar and amplifier package. All controls for operating the amp are built into the guitar and require the matching amp to be fully functional. The Professional is usable with other amps via the 1/4" jack on the top of the guitar. Utilizing the matching amp requires a special cable plugged into the guitar's multi-pin jack.

As well as volume and tone, there are tremolo and reverb controls. Tonal changes are actuated by five Tonexpressor switches. The amplifier itself is 15w or 35w, and can not be used independently.
