Product Description

The Fender Blues Deluxe Reissue produces 40 watts into a single 12-inch Special Design speaker by Eminence.
In 1993, Fender released the Tweed series amps to great success and acclaim. The concept: what if a great old collectable 1950s Deluxe or Bassman was customized with channel switching and Reverb? The Blues Deluxe and Blues DeVille were launched as vintage-styled tube amps with boutique tone at mass-produced prices, and many pro players in the rock, country, and blues fields used them with great results.

After a few years, the Blues Deluxe and Blues DeVille were reborn as the Hot Rod Deluxe and Hot Rod DeVille, when they received modified circuitry, a third More Drive channel, and Black/Silver cosmetic treatment. Though the Hot Rod series amps are more popular than ever today, increasing numbers of enthusiasts continue to request the warm tone, unique circuitry, features and look of the original versions. These Reissue models will be offered in addition to the Hot Rods.

Playability and Feel
Not what I expected
Your general opinion of this product.
I ordered this amp after reading that Larry Carlton used something similar to this on a few sessions. The tweed look got me and boy did it get me. Watched a handful of Youtube reviews (which is a bad a idea because YT videos never deliver what you'll actually hear in real life) and thought "hey, I think I found what Im looking for" Big mistake. I ordered it, then a few days later it came. Plugged in a Les Paul, and man did this thing sound bad. I tried to like it, really. But I just couldnt get used to it.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The amp itself is very well made and attractive. If the thing sounded good Id be proud to gig with it. Its more aesthetically appealing than it is auditory. The tweed finish is amazing. If you ever buy this thing with plans to gut it or heavily mod it, then go for it.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
After I got the amp, there was something about the tone I just couldnt get over. I couldnt name it but after reading more reviews after playing it, I came to the conclusion that the mids are just harsh! No matter how much you mess with the Mid knob the tone is just awful. And thats just the clean channel, which is also very week and I found it to be everything but smooth and warm. This is a very trebly amp.The overdrive channel is no good. If you buy this amp in hopes of getting a Larry Carlton/Steely Dan eqsue tone, keep looking because this aint it, kids. Another note, the knobs make no sense. Volume apparently controls the clean volume (which one may assume also controls how much Overdrive you get) but then the Master knob has no effect on the clean channel and completely controls the Overdrive channels volume. Go figure. I also read that these amps are modeled after 90's amps. Ouch! So as a good rule of thumb, NEVER buy a Fender amp that has a separate drive channel. Ever.
How was the action out of the box?
How did the stain or paint job look?
Excellent. One of the best looking amps Iv ever seen.
How has it stood up over time?
Seems like it would hold up pretty nicely over time. Id probably never use the protective covering they give ya' (It would never get the vintage, beat up look to it!)
