Got this as a birthday present a few months ago, and I can honestly say that I could not be more satisfied with it. Once you get past the learning curve of figuring out how all the functions work, this amp allows for limitless possiblities. The only thing missing is a loop function (which is easily solved by purchasing a loop pedal). The sound is crystal clear at low and high outputs. Extraordinary array of options and settings to create any kind of sound you are looking for. It's possible to play literally any genre of music with the number of options that are available. I love the fact that you can go in and deep edit each individual stomp-box and effect right there on the amp. The display and controls are simple and clear. It's also extremely versatile. Low volumes are still clear and are great for a "bedroom amp," the USB-out is great for home and studio recording, and with 100 watts, it's definetely loud enough to rock out smaller gigs. All in all great product that I am sure I will be using for a long, long time.

First off if your a jazz player, I am at times, run from this amp as fast as you can. It has no ability to produce a decent clean sound. Now for the rest of us, mostly rockers. I have had this amp for five days now and I am still trying to complete the programing. I have 15 hours in so far and nothing satisfactory is comming from the amp. It has a large variety of voicings, about 100, but each has to be tuned to your particular guitar and string set-up.It does have plenty of power.If you have your own pedals then this amp is a waste of your time. If you have no pedals then this amp gives you a lot. One last note this amp does not work well with loop stations.

    Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    This is a great amp! If you are interested in one of the top end Solid State amps for a great price check this amp out. This amp has something for everyone. If you are new to amps and or amp modeling there are some great YouTube videos out there and the patches from Fender are outstanding. Check out the guys from intheblues on YouTube for their blind tests and see for yourself why this amp rocks. Also you can download their legit patches.

    The only things I would improve on is the ability to add more than one stomp box effect in line for the modeling. This wouldn't be too difficult but right now you can't. Also an EQ would be awesome for the rack settings.

    Highly recommend this amp! You will enjoy it.

    Comments about Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I use this amp at home for my own enjoyment. I like that there is a headphone jack and aux input. This allows me to practice without bothering the family. Oh, and when I can, about 5 volume will let me dust the house when nobody's home! What a great amp with more tone options and combinations than I can imagine. Crystal clear clean that I wanted from a Fender along with gain that covers what I expected as well. The features this amp has presents an extrodinary value. I wanted a tube amp, but when it comes down to it, the sound coming from this amp makes it hard for me to tell the real difference. Not to take anything away from a tube amp, but the features here made this a no brainier for me.

      Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      Great for rehearsal and small rooms. Forget all the nonsense about modelling amps -- you can tweak up a few favourites in here and you have everything you need for whatever style you're into. The foot pedal configuration, amps and cabs, and overall tweakability mean you have to try out this thing if you are looking for a small combo and are thinking tube or solid state. It really does sound good at low and high volume -- doesn't seem to lack the grunt of a tube combo even when you push it.

      Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      So far so good...I've always been a "Buy clean" kind of guy. I always felt like it was important to buy an amp that had great clean tone...distortion can be added generally pretty easily. This amp seems to have both! I've played it loud enough to irritate everyone in the house, but have not used it in the studio with other musician's yet (I've not even had it for a full week). I've managed to get some great tones out of it with headroom to spare on settings. The software is very easy to use after about 5-10 minutes of playing around with it. It will teach you the value of subtle adjustments.

      Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I haven't used this amp in a show yet...but the amp I was using was a Fender M80 from 1991...to which many other musicians gave me grief over...until they heard it. This amp is very similar...my guess is anyone that complains about the sound quality probably doesn't understand how to get good, workable guitar tone out of ANY amp.

      The first thing I did was replace the default setting using the FUSE software. This is pretty easy to do if you're not a luddite. I took the 65 Deluxe Reverb, cut the gain all the way back, set my Mid and Bass between 8 and 10, and dropped the tone down to 3ish. Volume to your liking. This may not sound right, but trust me...this will get you that nice warm tone. That is my default tone now that I start with when I'm creating a new preset. You can replace any of the preset spots through the software.

      I'm almost 45...I love my day job, and gave up on the pipe dream of making it big many years ago. Every place where I live mics amps...so I see these guys bringing in 4x12 cabs with marshal heads...there's absolutely no chance of getting into the sweet volume area with those...and oh, by the way, sound guys HATE those high powered rigs! They see me walk in with a little 100 watt solid state amp, and they love me! I also don't need a large vehicle, or someone else to carry my amp.

      This is a great amp, so far...but again...I'll know more after my next live performance.

        This product has over thirty different tunings you can use from distortion sound to clean sound. There have been a few new ones added. You can use delay effects, phaser, tremelo, flanger, and wah wah effects. If you are looking to get the right sound for any song you are trying to cover or if you want to write your own songs this is the amp you want and need.

        Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

        This sucker is pretty impressive for what it is. By the money, it really doesn't get better. Lots of tweak ability to get real fender amp configs figured. If you made a special cabinet for this, you could fool fender buffs its a Princeton or Twin. Really has some good guts to it. Only things I'm disappointed in aren't necessary but being a digital board, I'm curious how they over looked em; no effects loop bypass or mix ( would be very useful and really only a matter of the software not the internal routing) , the software Fender Fuse is pretty useless, the control panel on the amp is much easier to use. Also, I can't seem to crack into amplitude or other IK software to add effects. On the whole, an effects loop volume knob would fix my only issue with this amp. Sounds amazing and blows away all my other players heavy relic amps.

                Comments about Fender Mustang III V.2 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

                I'm a tube guy. I still own my very first tube amp, a 1972 Fender Deluxe Reverb. It still sounds amazing.
                Because I no longer take the Deluxe Reverb out, I was looking for an low watt, light weight, TUBE amp to use when I perform.
                I've heard a lot of good things about these low watt tube amps available today from Blackstar, Marshall, Vox and others. None of them sounded good to my ear. Always something missing. So I started looking at larger amps, Fender Hot Rod III, Blues Deluxe, Marshall 40 Watt...
                Now things are getting expensive and weighing a lot more.
                One day I was in GC and the salesman suggested the Mustang. So I tried it. Glad I did. For $265 (sale price), it sounded better than any low watt, low price tube I tried. Not only did it sound better, it has 18 amp models (including the Deluxe Reverb!)
                Unless you're looking at a high end tube amp, don't waste your money. The modern Solid State (SS) amps have come a long way and sound amazing close to their Tube counterpart. While I'm save up for a really good Tube amp, I'm having tons of fun with a great sounding SS amp. I use it for practice and recording (I use my Deluxe Reverb for most of my recordings).
                There's still no replacing a really good Tube Amp, but for the money, This is as close as you'll get.
