They don't get a lot of love it seems, but I have one from the late 80's, and my Fender Player Strat sounds incredible through it.

I have a ‘93, I played through it at church for years. I recently replaced it with a Mustang III, so it came home. It has a great clean, and for me a decent “80s metal with chorus” that’s great for noodling with at home. The limiter is effective on the overdrive channel.

I used to have one and gigged with it for years. Sold it and I think that guy is still using it for gigging. I just wanted to go lighter and it wasn't getting used so out the door it went. Great amps, mine was a red knob.

Had one bought new circa '94 which I eventually gave to one of my sons around '05.

It's a nice home living room/bedroom amp. But when I started to jam and gig it didn't work for me. The limitations of a solid state jump out at louder gigging levels. It gets loud enough but you don't get the bottom you get from a tube amp. So i gave it away and went with a Blues Deluxe Reverb to cut through.

One thing it did really well was that jangly Rickenbacker 360/12 thing. Also I got decent jazz tone on a Les Paul.

But I could not get a snarly Tele tone that worked for me.

I had a Mexi one from '98... it's a perfectly
fine amp if you are ok with SS. Very nice cleans.

But it was just missing that "something" for me.
I sold it a while ago..and am quite happy with
the tube amps I have picked up since.. I must internally crave the tube harmonics and natural overdrive..
SS just doesn't vibe me ...
(altho I might not have a clue hearing one in a mix,

Welcome, Junior!

SS has come a long way, since then, to bridge the divide between tube and SS. It’s steadily been improving year after year. These days SS can be quite impressive.
