Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? First and foremost go to your local guru and have them switch out the input jacks for something not so flimsy. After a couple years (if you're more than a weekend warrior) the jacks will break loose and the crackle and pops begin. Only about a $60 price tag down here in Texas... Other than that, I haven't had any other problems Reliability How has it stood up over time? After 10 years, I still use it at every show... General Your general opinion of this product. I've owned it since 2003 (not the III though I guess). When I bought it I didn't know how coveted tube amps were. Hell, I didn't know it was a tube amp until 2 years later... I was playing an Ibanez RG through it, LOL!!! But I know Fender doesn't sound like Fender without Fender gear... Or so they say Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Just say, once you figure out how to use the tone pots on the thing, live gets good again. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Action How was the action out of the box?
Needed a good Valve Amplifier and this fit the bill..

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Built like a tank. The footswitch was inside the Velco holding it came loose in shipping, just glad it did not crush the speaker housing. Other than that, if I wanted to get picky, the Speaker Cloth is not even (straight) kind of a Quality Control at the Fender Factory Problem. Not made in USA Assembled in Mexico. Can live with it… Reliability How has it stood up over time? Only had this amplifier for 4 days. But I have never had a problem with a Fender Amp. Been using since 1966.. General Your general opinion of this product. I have a Hot Rod Deville III 212, (look at reviews for the Fender 212 on this site) and I really like the versatility of the amplifier. I wanted the same features but a bit more gain and crispier sound than the 12” speakers could give. I was so happy with the other Hot Rod Deville I thought I would give this a try . It fit right in and gave me what I needed. Very Happy Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It is great that they turned the controls so you can read correctly on the new Hot Rods...Plus did away with the Chrome Face, it is now black and easy to read.. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Great sound in all three channels, Normal, Bright and more Bright.. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Tolex looks good, Grill Cloth is a bit crooked.. Action How was the action out of the box? Flip two switches and turn the knobs, does not get any easier...

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Reliability How has it stood up over time? Cam with a blown speaker, and a treble pot that won't go past 3. I'm sure AMS would take it back but I'm just going to save myself the trouble and replace the speaker and pot myself while I recap. General Your general opinion of this product. I have over 35 amps and this one fills the Fender sweet spot. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Action How was the action out of the box?

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It's fender, top of the line quality. Reliability How has it stood up over time? just got it. General Your general opinion of this product. Love this amp. I can get anything from a sweet clean to a warm blues tone to a hard rock crunch. I use it with a rivera rockcrusher, an attenuator is required for a tube amp to be able to get a good tone at any volume. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It's a tube amp, great responsiveness to pick attack and playing style (i.e. hard, soft etc) Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I can run the gamut from bell like clean to smooth overdrive to actually a nice crunch, with my setup (see earlier desc) Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Good looking amp, i wish companies would start offering amps with metal corners and casters. This thing is not light. Action How was the action out of the box? Worked perfect out of the box.
