I will be looking at one of these amps and was hoping to get some information. I can pick this up for around $100 and wanted to know if they are worth it.

Thanks for your consideration

They usually go for around $200-250, so good price. Had one for a while, one of the few Fender amps that benefit from Torres mods, but still just a practice amp. Reverb on amp is almost non-existent. headphone out is a rarity for a tube amp.

Good buy and a pretty cool amp. Watch for bad pots and jacks on these, but this stuff is easy to replace if needed.

+1 on the Torres mods, at least the first one (I haven't gotten around to doing the others yet). It really made the amp come alive, including the reverb (now it's not great but usable)and the clean side of the amp (the distortion is pretty horrible and very touchy). The mod itself is very simple & you don't have to be a tech to do it (if you can solder...). It's an interesting amp and the only Fender I'm aware of that uses one 6L6.
