[usr 5]  I’ve given this amp a 5/5 for obvious reasons.  Not only is the amp of superior build quality, it’s small light and sounds bigger than it’s physical size.  It sounds great with a Stratocsater, Telecaster, and Humbucker guitars (more videos to follow).  If you want the best small amp around, check this Fender Champ Replica.  I have no hesitations saying it’s built better than Fender Custom Shop amplifiers.
