I'm tired of my guitar practice amps and would like to upgrade. I want a Fender or Fender style amp but I've no idea what I want exactly. Budget would be up to $700 but I can buy used, I'd at least like basic controls though - Bass, Mid, Treble controls, Reverb. No second channel is necessary. Tube or solid state doesn't matter and I'd like it to be at least 30 watts and have at least one speaker output. If I need to buy a bass amp to get what I'd like that's fine too.
Always tin your strings.

Fender Twin, or Twin reverb. You can find them used for 700.

Mesa Boogie Express

VOX AC30

Also:
I played a VOX night train. It REALLY packs tone. I would look into it. They're cheap but they sound great.

Jet City amp.

He's got enough to buy a used Fender Twin and you are recommending an extremely crappy practice amp that sounds nothing like a Fender????

TS - Check out silverface Fenders from the 70s... You can find them dirt cheap online, and if you're looking for a clean machine they got that covered.

If your looking for a cheaper option look at Music Man. It's Leo Fender's second company. I'm not saying they are or are not as good as a Fender. I'm just saying they are worth looking at.

You might want to look into a Blues JR, its a great amp for the price, its only 15 watts, but trust me its plenty loud.

Fender Telecaster
Epiphone Dot
Fender Blues Jr
VOX AC4
Ibanez TS-9

Theres the Fender Super Champ XD. all tube clear channel sounds phenomenal. another 15 watter like the blues JR but definitely packs a punch. I've compared it to some of my friends more expensive amps and it sounds just as good if not better than some. your restricted to bass/treble adjustment, no mid. It has 4 different reverb settings, along with some chorus/delay/tremolo as well. There is an aftermarket channel/fx pedal available that I would recommend along with the amp, it makes turning on/off effects much easier.

I personally love it and would recommend it. With that said tho, My budget was no where near yours, so I wasn't able to dive into the $400-500+ range to give an accurate opinion on those.

fender hot rod deluxe! 700 exactly.
If you don't talk to your kids about GAS, who will?
