the mods will do what they are supposed to. without knowing what mods you are talking about, no one has any idea what some random mods you are thinking about will do.

and i agree, if you have to ask, you dont need them.

what do any mods do? They modify your amp to improve things such as tone/features/controls. If you have experience with these things or you know a guy who can help you out, look into it. It might kill the resale value though.

blues jrs can get a hendrix esque tone, but nothing can quite replicate that bar the roar of a cranked Marshall JTM45.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

are you drunk right now? I don't understand a word of what you are saying. first off
a) we don't know what mods you are talking about, there are thousands of ways to modifiy a blues junior
b) you don't need them.
EDIT: ^ hendrix played a JTM45/100 for the most part. he only switched to a super lead later on.

I play blues,alternitive,classic rock,some metal not really, what amp is best for me?

I had a blues junior that I thought I was going to use as a little rehearsal and jam amp with the help of some pedals. No dice - it was a colossal piece of shit. I spent hours hunting down and re-soldering cracked joints and never did fix them all. I finally gave it away to some guy who thought he could fix it.

I would never recommend anyone buy one new.

That never happened to me. Mine was perfect from the start. Although I did buy the tweed one with the new speaker. That one is 10X better than the original, trust me!

I'm glad yours was good

I always kind of hate telling these "mine was a POS" stories, because you know someone else owns one and loves it like their first born child. It was one of my more disappointing purchases though and kind of turned me off to modern fender amps (well, that and a buddy who had a HRD with similar problems).

It's actually a common problem among most Fenders my friends own. My HRD has given me tons of trouble. The only one that hasn't had a solder joint problem was the tweed Blues Jr. Although the speaker did stop working for some reason and it had to be replaced under warranty.

I don't mean to hijack but does this mean I shouldn't buy a blues junior used?

Just try it first and you should be good. Most of those problems result from being rough with it. Mine broke as the result of being thrown in and out of cars. The Blues Jr. seems to be the most reliable of the cheaper bunch with the HRDs being disasters for the most part.

Nope, early Hendrix used 45s and 45/100s. Monterrey Pop Festival is most famous for the 45/100 tone.

I don't think he used the basic 45 at ALL if i remember, I'm almost certain it was always the 45/100. Hendrix's tone was a lot "heavier" than what a base 45 puts out (not to mention the volume.)
#23
I thought I had heard a JTM45 was used in the studio somewhere, perhaps not. I'm not really sure the JTM45/100 caused his tone to be heavier, a 45/100 is actually a fair bit cleaner and brighter than a stock 100, low end isn't quite as overbearing, but Hendrix did use a fuzz face in front of it at times.

hey helicopters nice icon. Love that game. Back to guitars. Sounds like its good. Ya how is it gigable? Can it with stand punishment? I mean honestly is there a point in getting a blues junior or deville?

If you really want a small amp for a Jimi Hendrix style tone, look into the Marshall Class 5. It doesn't have the most features but it's tone is pretty great for a lot of classic rock and blues-rock.
