The Pro Junior III is a simple, uncluttered 15-Watt tone machine, a great grab & go tube amp for stage or studio. It's got the fat mid tones characteristic of EL-84 output tubes, a dual 12AX7 tube preamp, and a 10-inch Fender Special Design speaker with vintage cone. These ingredients add up to incredibly touch-sensitive dynamic response that experienced players prefer.
Other features include a unique clean-to-drive volume control, and external speaker capability. The new Pro Junior III also includes these upgrades: Easier reading black control panel with front reading text; New badge; Vintage Fender "dog bone" handle; Vintage sized jewel light; Lower-noise shielding; Rattle reducing shock absorbers for EL-84 tubes; Heavy duty set screw "chicken head" knobs.

This is a great gigging amp. I use a Gibson Les Paul Studio, a Boss OD and a Crybaby and I'm set. I also have a HSS Strat that I use occasionally...both sound great. I have two of these amps that I purchased used and have had NO problems. I run the tone almost wide open, and the volume around 4 or 5 and use the OD for "grit". Plenty loud and full sounding...love it!
So the Blues Junior has a 12 & this has a 10 but it's killer! Why?...no bells & whistles, just a volume & tone knob so you can add whatever pedal you want & get killer effects. The Blues Junior is one of my faves because it does have a Master & Drive volumes along w/Reverb but the "bare bones" of a Pro Junior can't be beat! One of Nels Cline's favorite amps (according to what I've heard or read, I can't remember which). Also was told Jeff Beck uses this as his on stage amp that's miked or run thru the P.A. Either way, it's great for recording or a good jam on stage!
I have been returning and exchanging these amps for 3 weeks to try and get one without quality or manufacturing defects, and I just returned my 5th amp. Each one has had issues that make them un-useable. From horrible hiss and buzz, to a volume knob that wont turn off the sound. This is a bad ratio of quality problems and makes me wonder about Fender quality control. Guitar Center has been great to deal with, my emails to Fender go unanswered. This would be a killer little amp if I could get one that would operate and play as it's supposed to. Good luck with yours!
I wanted to move from solid state to tube. I was looking every amp over at Guitar center and this one was just awesome. I wish it had some sort of a master volume, but its not a problem. Nothing has gone wrong and it sounds great. It looks to be good quality. Don't think twice. Buy it now.
