i ended up trading for/buying it: '06 faded w/humbuckers. Has a nice broken in feel, plays well, sounds good. I ws originally thinking about a special w/p90's, but liked this one a lot. (Jr.'s are cool, but I play took much on the neck p'up

Now we'll see how long I last before I start changing stuff...

I figure the best amp for the blues is the one you got. Not about what you got as much as what you do do with what you got. :wha:


A lot of truth there. I might add as well, "the amp you're used to". When I switched from your basic SF Bassman or Dual showman to the Fender 75, it took a lot of tweeking to get my tone where I wanted. (Granted, single channel, cascading pre-amps are can be a little touchy.) If you're familiar with the rig, you know how to get the sounds/tones you're looking for out of it, both in terms of settings and your touch.


I have a Fender Blues Junior (Blond) amp. (2002) Ampeg B100R Rocket Bass Amp, GK 1001RBII Bass amp, Gk 410 Speaker Cabinet. :D


I had a chance to try an SG through a Blues Jr. at a local shop last week. I like the amp, a lot. I had some trouble getting the tone out of it I was looking for, but I'm pretty sure it's in there. I'd need to be more familiar with it.

he ever used he said.
One day he finds a Fender SuperSonic60 like mine.
Without taking it out to play first he starts changing
tubes to "cop" the sound of his Vyper. Well, the SS60
never did cop the Vyper and in fact sounded just aweful.
When I played it there was NO clean, just ratty hi end
Fingers on a chalk board. And this guy was just going on
how he really found the tone in the amp. I felt he totally
erased all the qualities I love in the amp.

I never told him how I felt, I just politely said "no thanks"
when he offered to do the same to my amp.

At this point many blues snobs are laughing, But. here's the thing, I'm not a blues purist by any means. I like crystal clean bell tone, the Bassman provides this and reflect that Fender vibe. The burn channel plays itself. It can cop SRV Texas Flood better than what my Zendrive2 can produce on the Bassman channel. So I rarely use the pedal. The amp is a true pedal killer.

All that said, I believe the true tone lies in the fingers (the human).
Without a skilled player the guitar/amp does nothing positive.

A clean amp can reveal sloppy playing, a dirty little amp can hide some of that slop but I can tell skill level regardless.

My ASAT Special and Fender SuperSonic 60 are very sympathetic to my playing and that makes it a winning pairing for me.

And, now that I have the sound I seek, I can get back to focusing on the music and my playing.
