Sound — 10
I used my 2005 Squier Stratocaster with 3 humbucket pickups. The amp fits my music style perfectly and my styles are blues, rock, metal and punk. The amp can be noisy or it can be quiet because there is a noise gate in it which blocks the excess hum from you guitar and interference around the amp. The amp has many effects like fuzz, wah-wah, overdrive, and none for an acoustic sound. There are more effects but I rather let you find 'em. It also has different amp sounds for more variety of sound. The clean channel is still clean at high volumes. The distortion setting is adjustible by decimal nubmers like 7.5 or 10.0. I contains Drum and bass loops as well. Some genre settings will contain a piano or other instruments.
Overall Impression — 10
Overall, this amp is good for all genre and fits my style perfectly. If someone stole my amp I would be pissed off at them and I would track them down. I would replace it because it's a sweet amp. I 100 percent love this amp. Worth the money indeed. I love to play with the distortion. compared to the Fender 15g amp it beat it 20-3. Buy this amp you'll thank me later. Eric Johnson likes this amp too.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I can depend on it as I do with a Marshall amp. I depend on Marshall and Fender amps. It is not for use in a gig but it is good for home use and small areas. The amp has never ever broken down on me and for this I give Fender a high five for this.
Features — 9
The amp was made in 2005. The GDEC has thousands combos for many styles like; rock, metal, punk, country, ragae, pop, and even hip-hop. It has one channel and contains effect loops and has a headphone jack that instantly mutes the amp's speaker when you plug your headphones in. There's nothing in my mind that it would need except for midi to usb cables which is not sold with the amp. Please Fender include these cables next time! There are no features I will never use. I use this amp at home or at a friends house. This amp is really loud. It has a lot of power (or balls if you prefer). This amp doesn't use tubes.
