General Your general opinion of this product. I purchased this little guy at a store that was closing out their Fender gear, didn't plan on buying it. WOW! Glad I did. The Deluxe RI and the Egnator Tweaker haven't seen the light of day since I bought it. Light weight and powerful. If you play extremely clean and loud, you might need something bigger but we try to keep it reasonable on stage. All the amp I need. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great quality Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Simple 1 volume and one tone. Simple. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Minimal tone control but it seems to be be enough. Action How was the action out of the box? Plug and play Reliability How has it stood up over time? So far so good!
It is called "Pro" for a Reason

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? As part of the Hot Rod series the Pro Junior III has a subtle but exclusive sound and feel. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I just received it yesterday. General Your general opinion of this product. I am using the Pro Junior III with Fender N3 Pick-ups. (Fender HSS Deluxe). This set-up is quite unforgiving, but the excellent tone from the Pro Junior III hits all the right spots. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Controls are easy to get to as long as you put it on a table. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The Pro is both bright and snappy and dark and smooth. It really brought the best out of the Fender Deluxe HSS with N3's Im using. It sounds great. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Excellent. Action How was the action out of the box? No issues.
Awesome light amp with a lot of boom!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The quality build of the amp is about as good as it gets for a factory amp. Probabley not as good as a botique or custom built amp but, I'm OK with that. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've been gigging with it faithfully twice a week for 2 years and My daughter takes it from time to time. I am still using the stock tubes and speaker. Don't know if that is lond enough to tell. General Your general opinion of this product. I have an older one with the chrome and it hasn't given me any problems. I think it is a great design. It's light small and loud, well enough to keep up with a drummer and bass. If not you can always mic it. It's simple to set up and if you desire more color to your sound it takes pedals well. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Great cleans but not really vintage Fender. Maybe because of EL84 power tubes.Breakup is pure 70's rock almost AC 30ish. It does hum a little but when the band starts going the hum isn't noticed. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I think the PJ is a little on the dark side of Fender but still has great top end.Chime?. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? It is small, Black and silver. Hardley noticable. looks good though. Action How was the action out of the box? I wouldn't recommend this as a bedroom amp because it has no master volume and it's just too loud. May a Blackstar HT1 or a Super Champ would be better.
