Mine is very "sweet". Black tolex. Has 35 year old RCA 12ax7 in stage 1, a Sovtek 12ax7wa in 2, a 45+ year old Zenith 12at7 in the PI slot, stock Sovtek EL84s and a 1970s Hammond organ Alnico speaker. I use it on special gigs and recordings, it sounds awesome. Tone, tone, tone... With a regular telecaster it's the real deal!!

OK, I'm in...black & stock, except for 12at7's to clean up the tone and lower the volume a tad. I know some folks don't like the BJ for clean playing, but I think it's great for "clean sweet soul" style (a la Curtis Mayfield) with my strat. Sounds real earthy with my Nashville Tele, too. A definite keeper!

Got my Blues Jr. this past Monday. Been wanting one for a while. I bough it for that classic Fender clean tone with the FAT boost - just enough OD to add some character to a clean solo. Sounds great with my 50's Strat.

Black, about 3 months old. Reverend 1250 speaker. All Sovtek tubes: 12AX7LPS, 12AX7WA, 5751, E-H EL84s. Taped a piece of corrugated cardboard to the bottom of the reverb pan. Use the little guy for practice and in my studio. Love it!!!

TWEED all the way! Got lucky, found a used one. Just need to replace the power tubes...a few pops going on here 'n there.
Sounds great with Texas Specials OR a Les Paul.

Black, Stock, some reverb hiss. I love this Amp and use it for home and jamming. After going through a lot of amps (Mesa Boogie, HR Deville, etc) I have settled on a BJ, a DRRI and a trusty Sidekick 30 that I have used for low volume practice since I started playing. When I play with others, while they are setting up their rows of effects conected to some Brand X amp, I am either plugging one of my strats straight into my BJ or DRRI... and they just can't believe the tone! Hey it's why we are Fenderholics.

Bought mine used. Black, stock, home use only. Sounds great with my American Standard Strat and Ibanez tube screamer. Possibly upgrading tubes in the near future.

Tweed, replaced speaker with a MojoTone P12 -- that made it magic.
My first tube amp and I'll never let her go.

Black, stock, some hiss. Roland footswitch for FAT control. Great addition for going to a fat lead tone.

Geez, I feel lucky. My tweed has no trouble with rattles, buzzs or hiss. What a joy the amp is.

black with a celestion v30, its my 4th b.j.,and i sincerely hope fender never stops makin em,cause the next closest thing is probably $500 more. no comparison to an amp like a h.r. for that rootsy vibe at moderate volumes,imho.muddy and them woulda loved em.

Picking up my blonde BJr this afternoon at the UPS station!

It will be pretty much an at-home amp. Mostly for nice clean, hissy Rockabilly sound.

Black BJ, replaced tubes with two EI EL84s and two Sovtek 12ax7 lps tubes and one Philips 12at7 tube in the either the phase inverter position or the middle position. Stock speaker. Home practice and small jams. I've got a hisser, but it doesn't really bother me.
