General Your general opinion of this product. Years and years have passed since the first Fender Twin rolled off the assembly line. Fender may not have known it at the time but they had built a legend. The Fender Twin has seen stages all over the world. No matter if you play Gospel, Funk, Rock, Blues, Jazz, or Country music, the Fender Twin will do the job and not only just do the job but provide you with the fattest tone, most headroom, and absolutely help the guitarist to achieve his ultimate tone. In my opinion, the Fender Twin amplifier sits atop the mountain in guitar amplification. A time tested legend to say the least. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The Fender Twin is quality at it`s best. Years of building these amps would suggest that each amp is built to perfection. I personally have never had any issues with any of mine. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? There is no doubt that the Twin is a bit on the heavy side but with tone and quality like this, who cares... Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone of the Fender Twin amplifier is world renowned. The clean headroom this amplifier provides is 2nd to none. Many of the up and coming amp manufacturers strive to even get near the tone of the Fender Twin. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The classic finish to the chassis and housing of the Fender Twin is simply yet perfect. Reliability How has it stood up over time? The Fender Twin amplifier is as reliable as they come. Do a search and you will find many Twins from every decade since the first Twin was built.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? As far as amps go, it's hard to beat a Fender Twin. The '65 Fender Twin RI is solid as a rock and built to last. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've owned this amp about a month and have put it through its paces with my band. Although I have a "backup" amp by default (just happen to have another amp), I have no doubts about its reliability. I would be comfortable gigging this without a backup. General Your general opinion of this product. I put off buying a Twin because of the cost. Now that I've taken the plunge and have one, I kick myself for waiting so long. I've been playing guitar for almost 50 years and have seen a lot of amps come and go from my stable. The '65 Twin RI is one of those rare amps that stand out fromn the others and is a bonafide "keeper". It is well built, solid, dependable and delivers the goods, at least for the type of music I play. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? This is a heavy amp. There is no getting around it. Too bad Fender doesn't build these with castors on them. However, I do have a collapsible dolly that makes moving thing a breeze. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? This amp is ideal for blues, garage band-era '50s and '60s rock, country and jazz. It is a maximum clean amp, as well. It just won't "break up" on its own. However, it does love and take pedals well, and I use a TubeScreamer when I want to get some light overdriven sounds from it. It has basic treble, middle and bass controls, and they are sensitive to adjustments. Add some of the built-in, tube driven tremolo and tank reverb and you have a killer classic amp. I'm not a huge effects guy but I have found that I've had to use an EQ pedal to fatten things up a bit with just about every other amp I've owned. Not so with the Twin. It's great to just plug a guitar (Strat or Les Paul) straight into the amp and leave the pedals packed away. Some folks will say this amp is not built for metal. perhaps, but I think it could be adapted with a good distortion or overdrive pedal. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Fit and finish are flawless. Action How was the action out of the box? N/A -- It's not a guitar, but a guitar amp.
