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...
