FDP Forum / Fender Amps: 1985 - Current / Speaking of Blues Deluxe - which version?

From what I understand, there are about 3 distinct versions of the Blues Deluxe - the original '90's MIA, the mid-2000's MIM, and the current "reissue". Maybe more, as I haven't fully researched it yet.

Is there any era that is better or worse, or are they all pretty much the same?

The reissues have bias pots, the first ones didn't.

Hi swampyankee!

Afaik, there are only 2 versions - the original 90´s models and the post 2004 reissues.

I´d opt for a reissue, too.
For the updated circuitry (bias-pot, switchable reverb...) and for being 10 years younger, which delays any age-related problems for a couple of years ;-)

cheers - C.
