I'm selling my MIII v1 and buying the GT100. Will post a review once I've had some time with it.

Ok...traded in my MIII for a GT 100...out the door for $200 at GC.

First impressions...amp models are improved over the v1 significantly, but EQ is different. At lower volumes the need a little bit of treble, but otherwise they sound great. Effects are also improved over my v1...quieter, and they seem higher fidelity.

As others have reported, the speaker needs breaking in, but I don't think it's anything a few hours won't cure. I'll be fiddling with it later to try and learn the app and all the new menu options,

Overall, I'm liking it...they have improved a product I have liked for 5 years and added some useful new features.

More to come when I've had more time on it.

I'll try one when it lands in my area but there are some things that Fender should have kept with the Mustang series that are not on the new amps.

I just watched a review on the GT 200 which I pasted below and I am not totally sold on them as yet.

Some of the effects buttons on the new series are missing....delay, reverb. They really came in handy when wanting a quick change in the settings. The benefits of the older series were the user friendly features. The GT amps seem to have gone the way of other types of digital amps. But I haven't played one yet so these are just assumptions on my part.

Everyone out there with the new Mustang GT amps please keep us posted.

Would really love to hear all the "Love's", "Likes", "Dislikes" that these new redesigned amps from Fender offers.

Play on Mustang amp owners old and new Gt's!

I'm really enjoying the improved models. The EQ takes some getting used to...if you are playing low volume, you may want to tweak it. Once you get it dialed in the models seem more realistic and higher fidelity, especially when compared to my v1. I like the app...it is far easier than Fuse, but it is glitchy. Fender has told me they are working on a number of fixes and will be upgrading frequently. I like the new pedal configuration but have asked for the ability to disable the looper for reasons many have pointed out.

Bottom line, if you like having access to the best Fender tones this beats the Katana hands down. If you are into higher gain applications the Mustangs might not be for you.

I have finally gotten my Vox and Marshall patches for my Heritage where I really like them. I have 2 Vox patches, one is a clean with a low gain setting and the second has a little grit. It did take a lot of tweaking to get it there. The Marshall patch just needed a little less gain and I lowered the SAG and viola, there it was. The basic sound with just a touch of reverb sounds just right for rhythm. I added a basic compressor to push it just a little more for the few leads I play.

I finally joined the club- picked up a used M3 v2 a few weeks ago. Still working through the patches and making my own, but I love the sound I'm getting.

Our other guitarist has just got an MIII. We're now a two mustang band ;-)

You can pick up an MIV on eBay here for £100. I'm so tempted. ;-)

How do I join the Mustang Amp Club?

I am new to guitars. I recently purchased a Les Paul Epiphone 100 and Mustang 3 amp and cant wait to get started. Does anyone have any recommendations on which preset to use for various artists? I am mainly interested in:
classic blues
Rolling Stones
Santana
Cream
Hendrix
Old Chicago
Pink Floyd...
stuff like that.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

You joined the moment you bought your mustang.

Seems that the YouTube reviewer that telegib referenced a few posts back has changed his tune. He loved the new GT model at home, but at the gig it was a different story. He complained of brittle harsh tone at high volumes. He returned the amp and replaced it with a Blues Jr. III.
I still use my Mustang IV ver. 2 to gig with, and still love it. It has been very reliable, predictable and solid.
Anyone else have any gig experience with the new GT's?
How are they working out?

Not yet but it love mine and will bring it to clamfest to put it through the paces. I have cranked it pretty loud at home and after a short break in period on the speaker it really came alive. I find the tone and response much more realistic that the original mustang I've had the past 5 years.

I'm not a true member of the Mustang Club - I did have a Mustang Mini for a short time in 2015 but anyway...

FWIW, I've bought numerous pedals from Shane (In The Blues, GT review) as well as having multiple email exchanges with him over the past few years.
That said, I respect his opinions on guitars & gear.
I have also bought pedals from other sellers based on his reviews and have always been happy with whatever the effect was I purchased.

Knowing how complimentary he has been with the III, and hearing his grievances regarding the changes made to the latest Mustang version, there must be *some* merit to them. JMHO

Is a Mustang I v1 updated to a GT40 worthwhile?

Keep the M1 if you do.

From looking at the included stuff and listening to demos, it just sounds like the v2.0 version to me, which wasn't enough of an upgrade to ditch my then new Mustang V head (and since they don't have a new head...)
