For the money this isn't a bad offering by Fender. This is sort of a step above the solid state amp modeling amps that are a little lower on the price point. These amps actually sound pretty decent. Not too many features but enough to get you some solid tones and effects all in one easy amp package.

This is the exact same amp as the black standard version but just in a cooler more cosmetic detailed custom color. This is the blonde tolex covering with a brown grill front baffle. This amp has all the same features and tone as there black but just a up graded look.

SOUNDS

I have to listen to this amp with a good Fender Stratocaster or superstrat for the tones I'm looking for. A nice Gibson Les Paul doesn't hurt either but right now I'm into the strats. The clean are exactly what you have come to know from Fender. They are sparkly and chimy with a tone of character. The distortion channel is a solid grindy Fender tube saturation that you would expect from Fender. Not a Marshall grind bit definitely a usable tone. If you want something in a high gain format than I would looking to the Peavey solid state stuff which has great sounding distortion and effects build in for the same range of prices.

OVERALL OPINION

I am a big fan of this amp. It has a solid tone and a good double channel experience with liquid effects built in. At new these units come in at around $800, which isn't bad for a well built all in one Fender amp. This would be a great gigging cover band amp for somebody.

I would recommend this amp to anyone who is playing a lot of covers or just jamming at home and don't want to mess of multiple effects and pedals. This would be for someone who wants to go simple and keep it clean.
