I have a 112 I bought in mid 90s. Very good cleans, not bad distortion, real reverb, 60 watt loud to handle drummers, even played bass through it and handled well. Workhorse solid state amp, Fender could take a hint and build them like that again.

This would be my first amp. My budget is $150 and I play a Fender Squier Strat. The only amps in my budget at the nearest store are a Fender Princeton, a Fender Rumble, and a Marshall MG.

Princeton indefinitely. they are pretty good for an older SS amp. i used one at church a long time ago (circa 2003). haha.

Several carried the name Princeton so you gotta be more specific:

Original 60s Blackface Princeton (tube). Badass 12w Fender tone monster.

70s Silverface Princeton (tube). Still pretty sweet 12w tube amp.

80s Princeton Reverb II 20w tube. Less interesting but still pretty decent amp.

90s Princeton 112 or Chorus SS. Ok for a first amp.

Reissues are also reasonably faithful reproductions of the early amps and definitely a quality Fender tube amp. Go for the tubes...

Is it a Fender Princeton Chorus? I had one for years and it worked great for me. Throw a Blues Driver in front and it gets a killer grunge tone! I sold mine 7-8 years ago for $180 (it was the 212), if that means anything to you. $150 would probably be okay if its in great shape, imo.
