General Your general opinion of this product. Overall, I'm very impressed. Love the '61 Blonde/Oxblood color even if it doesn't match my cabs. It's really striking. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Fender did not scrimp on the details. The quality is up there with the best. We'll have to see on dependability. But, I expect it to perform without issue until it needs tubes. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Simple and straight forward. Love having 2 gain circuits on the Burn channel. The supplied 4 button foot switch could survive the apocalypse. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The vintage channel is pure sparkle. Hit the Fat button and it scoops the mids for that classic Fender "spank". The Burn channel seems to have no end to different tone options. I haven't even scratched the surface of this thing yet because every sound I dial in, I love to use it for a while before exploring on. Classic Rock to Heavy Metal. I personally like dialing in a LO-FI Fuzz setting. Plays blues extremely well. And it doesn't matter what pick ups you use or what you have your guitar tone set to. It seems to adapt to the guitar instead of the other way around. Every note clear as a bell. Action How was the action out of the box? It turned on. Cool vintage jewel power on light. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Beautiful. The '61 Blonde/Oxblood is beautiful but, it's not for everyone. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Time will tell.
This head delivers! It's so thick sounding you may have to dial it down a bit!

General Your general opinion of this product. This head sounds like a modern version of a 67 Bassman on the vintage channel. The burn channel is so versatile I can use it for almost all of my needs when I am not using my Marshall JCM200 head. Sometimes I don't need 100 watts and this thing sings overdrive and saturated distortion! You can't lose! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well made. No problems at all and the foot switch is heavy duty just how I like it! Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Very easy to dial in quickly for quick changes Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Thick unrelenting tone! Reliability How has it stood up over time? Not sure yet. Only had it a week.
