General Your general opinion of this product. Best online shopping for a great Amphitheater. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great dependable. Made extremely well. 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 all good. Just right for me.

General Your general opinion of this product. THE HANDLE IS GUARANTEED TO BREAK- FENDER, REPLACE THIS HANDLE NOW, PLEASE. Otherwise, it's a great amp right out of the box-READ THE MANUAL! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? THE HANDLE BROKE ON MINE THE 6TH TIME I PICKED IT UP-TERRIBLE HANDLE DESIGN. The rest of it is pretty good for the money. Get a direct fit leather handle to replace the rubber one that will split, hopefully not while you are carrying it down some stairs. Sound is very dependable- I destroyed with it at the gig the other night.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Rock-solid. Rode with me, buckled up in the back seat for over an hour. Cabinet is firm, and the handle feels very secure. Gotta love that tolex, too. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I have only had mine for... 3 days... Seems like it'll hold up for awhile. Rating it a 5 so it doesnt get dinged. General Your general opinion of this product. IF you are looking for your first-ever tube amp, and don't need to rock an entire stadium, look no further! I got this beauty a few days ago, and it has already proven itself to me. I picked it up at the front office of the apartment complex the DAY OF my latest gig. Only had one practice with it to try to dial everything in, but that was time enough! Before I continue singing the praises of this amp, though, let me forwarn you... The negative comments regarding the DRIVE and MORE DRIVE channels are very accurate. Fender kinda messed this one up again. Instead of flabby like previous versions, it just sounds like you're listening to a guitar through a telephone handset. Pretty much only good for a SPECIAL EFFECT. Not to be used as regular overdrive... That is my ONLY complaint, and the situation is rectified by the built-in effects loop. Don't throw away your pedals, children! In fact, this thing DIGS 'EM ;D Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Very expressive. If you know how to milk the tone from your strings, this will show that talent ten-fold. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Punchy mids, tight-bass, and chiming highs, ESPECIALLY WHILE CLEAN. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Tolex is purdy xD Action How was the action out of the box? Barely had to try to dial in a good sound.
