It's a great-looking amp. Lacquered tweed just has a certain look about it that says "music." If we still used luggage that's made of wood and covered with tweed like it used to be, we might have a different opinion about that.<br /> <br /> If you're into the Fender 6V6 thing and you like onboard reverb and tweed, this just might be the thing for you.<br /> <br /> The vintage fanboiz will all be tripping over themselves to poo on this amp, but who cares? If you like it--it's the cat's meow.

I saw it the other day, it might be my next move up from the tweed blues jr i have now. Plan on keeping the BJ also. Will never need DRRI or Twin IMO.

Nice looking amp. Do yourself a favor call and see what they will do on price before you purchase.

I like the look/ idea of it. <br /> <br /> I'm not in the market for a new amp, but if I was, I'd consider it.

I like that better than the standard tweed top-mounted controls by far!

I think I might buy that amps purely based upon looks alone. <br /> <br /> After looking at that tweed I had to go outside and smoke a cigarette and collect myself.

I was imagining putting my Celestion Blue Alnico in that amp. I haven't smoked in about 10 weeks now, but nearly broke down.

Looks nice, and the 12" into 15 watts of Princeton cleans sounds appealing. Fender has offered a few others with this speaker set-up (various 12"-ers, anyway), but some of them are a couple hundred more than this one! <br /> <br /> I asked Sweetwater to contact me when they come in... I'm gambling they won't all sell out if I don't pre-order. Gives me some time to sell something.<br /> <br />

It's not just good..

If I was in the market for a new amp, that would REALLY tempting.<br /> <br /> Years back, I had a BF Princeton Reverb that I loaded with an EV 12 - it sounded glorious.<br /> Letting go of that amp was one of my major musical gear blunders. I'm still not sure why I ever got rid that one.

It needs a couple of lit cigarettes laid on the top for awhile to give it character!

Nice lookin', and a Princeton with the right 12 and a Sennheiser 609 might be all the amp you'd need. But if I'm spending $1000 for an amp I would want them to have enough pride in their workmanship to put the serial number sticker on straight.

Decided not to wait for this one - bought one of the returned ones at MF (through the link here!) for a couple bucks less than this one - same grill cloth, burgundy tolex, has the 12" Jensen speaker instead of the Cannibas Rex, but I can live with that (will probably be a pound or two lighter, too...).<br /> <br /> Let you know when it arrives and gets run through its paces... probably this Sunday morning if it gets here by Friday.

I have an opposite opinion of the tweed look on a front control panel Fender, Blah. It has to be a narrow, wide panel or TV front for me to like tweed. Just me I guess.<br /> <br /> Now paint it black like guys did in the 60s to their 50s tweed amps!
