Fender Super-Sonic ?

So I've been doing some reading and youtube viewing of the Fender Super-Sonic. It seems like I cannot find a single bad review on it (especially from blues players and the like). I really like the idea behind it having two distinctively different but very usable clean channels (both of which apparently sound great). But is it really true that the "burn" channel is able to conjure up as great sounding overdrive/distortion as people are claiming? I am curious and I really wish the local shops had one to play on. The youtube videos seemed pretty promising too.

Does anyone own one or has anyone played on one? If so what are your comments/criticisms on it?

I've never played one but you might ask the guys on the vintage amp/plexi board. They have a Fender amp forum and were real helpfull over there when I got my old bassman.

I've played them a couple times in Guitar Center. If I was going to drop uh... what are these, $1200? If I was going to spend that kind of money on a modern amp that would probably be the one. My only real complaint is there are so many knobs that you're bound to spend more time screwing with the thing than playing your guitar.

If you've got a shop local I would just go play on it for 30 minutes. I doubt you'll be displeased with the sounds it emits.
