Any thoughts on the Fender Cyber Champ?

I'm in the market for a new Amp, to complement my Fender Champ 600 and Vibro Champ (the new one ), and a Vox Tonelab. I'm mostly looking for something that works well for modern-ish Alt rock.

Somebody in my area is selling a Fender Cyber Champ and HSS Strat for $100, which seems like a steal to me. However, I'm not sure the Cyber Champ does anything my current amps don't. Does anybody have any experience and/or opinions on the amp?

Looking online, I see alot of positive reviews, but it's a 10 year old amp and I feel it might (at best) be a step sideways from what I currently have.

What exactly do you need from a new amp that yours don't currently do?

I'd personally just sell both amps that you have and buy a better one that covers everything you want

I agree with this, why have four compromises?

For $100, I'd just get it. If it's a Fender MIM strat you could double your money overnight.

More likely a Squier misrepresented...

Actually, I can't make out the label but I'm thinking Ibanez. With that headstock, it's definitely not a Fender.

That's a great deal for somebody. But if you don't need it, then it's just clutter.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. From the reviews, it's comparable to what I have now, and it's not going to be worth my time to deal with.

Thanks for the input everyone!
