Trying to figure this out. Should I use 1-12 or 13-16 for a guitar amp head with a DI out? Looked in the advanced manual and it states nothing about the inputs really.

I agree, federalhog...
...that users' manuals are but one of the areas where Line 6 stands to gain a lot from coming under the "umbrella" of Yamaha.
If the "real estate" in 1 to 12 was crowded, you could indeed use a correctly configured XLF to balanced TRS jack from any amp that had one of those increasingly common XLM "DI Out" connectors on its chassis and plug it into one of those "last four" 13 to 16 inputs.
However, many of us, I think, would share an instinctive preference for connecting "like to like", whereby we'd probably lean towards using a conventional XLF to XLM "mic" cable to connect from an amp's chassis mounted "DI Out" XLM into one of our first 12 inputs, but most likely go "jack to jack" into one of the last four from a source that only presented a jack output, be that output balanced or unbalanced.
Although the "M20d Advanced Guide" is excellent in many respects, I too believe that it does not make enough references to the extraordinary flexibility and sonic excellence that's evident in the "forgiving" nature of StageScape input stages.
I guess we could also apply that same slight criticism to Line 6's documentation for their StageSource speaker systems.
