    Well...I guess I'm the jackass of this forum too.

    I'm all for this and have been clambering for this exact idea for a few years now.

    Why not commit 100% of the DSP to making a traditional simple clean, crunch, lead amplifier? Leave out all the other confusing programming and useless effects no one uses, and just dedicate all the processing power to making it sound great.

    I already have plans on selling my BassBreaker 15 combo to fund one of these.

    Good concept, but my point was more about the ridiculous price of these. Why not buy a used tube version for less that will sound better?

    Good idea, but why $1000 ? I couldn’t even justify half that. Why is Fender asking so much ?

    i been thru no holds barred gear fest. last 2 years..we all come to dif ways of finding our tone...i am for all gear,,, its about the sound you need...seems you know what you are looking for..bet it works out good for you !! After what i heard in all the gear i went through,,,man my gear sig has radically changed & the lowly internet acclaimed Fender Super Reverb RI is my main studio amp & the 74 Super the main gig amp...it's all good !!

    All attempts by Fender to switch to solid state have failed miserably. Every one of them.

    Those who have not learned from history are destined to repeat it :lol:.

    Although I will admit that Fender and Marshall have both made some good sounding SS amps. Just not good enough for musicians.
