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.

Types of music: Rock, metal (80s), blues

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:

    It's 1:30 in the afternoon and I have the Mustang set with a distortion setting that makes me relive my 70's roots as a guitar player. The walls are shaking, my ears are dripping and I cant stop playing. I am in tone heaven with heavy distortion and delay. I suddenly realize I am LOUD and in an apartment. The crazy thing is my Mustang III is only on 4 (master), This amp kicks, I cant wait to see what it sounds like at 6. Buy it, spend some time with it, and I know you will LOVE it.

        All I got to say is WOW!!!! this amp sounds great it has great pre set sounds and of you don't find something you like you could always dial in your settings to your own taste. The sound is really clean and with 100 watts it packs enough punch for gigs and finally for a fender you can't beat the low price I highly recommend it.

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

            I did a lot of research. I was looking for an amp that would replace my 65 Super Reverb bc the weight of the 65 was too heavy to drag along to practice in the studio. I couldn't decide between this and the Champion. Both amps are great. I went with this bc I was able to change change the presets to fit all my needs. I read on a couple of reviews that getting a clean setting was next to impossible. I'm 55 years old old school guitar player. After sitting with the amp a couple of hours I was able to get clean, dirty, jazz, blues,... tones. The settings are endless. The 65 preset isn't as warm as my tubed 65 but it is close for a solid state amp. I would highly recommend this amp.

              This thing is pretty awesome. It comes with a huge amount of presets and allows for a lot of adjustments to be made to the separate sounds to get what you want. It gets LOUD but still maintains itself in clarity. It is perfect for garage band practice or even live shows

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

                Terrific Amp! Sounds Great once you get past most of the extreme FX laden Factory Presets 00-82. The Basic Profiled Amp models in Factory Preset Memories 83-99 are a great place to start finding your preferred tones, as these have no FX enabled. The Advanced Amp settings (tap Amp button 2x) gets you deeply into the Mustang's Magic. Here you may adjusts SAG, BIAS, Cab Simulations, and more. Note: These Advanced Amp settings are individual for each of the 100 Presets - they are not a global adjustment! With the Mustangs a subtle adjustment to any of a Preset's Amp or FX parameters can go a long way!

                The Free Fender FUSE software can do a lot for Windows or Mac users. However, if you have an Android tablet or smartphone, the REMUDA App is the way to go! It does things FUSE lacks and makes editing, reorganizing, and using the Amp much easier and convenient!

                I bought the Mustang III v.2 during the 2014 year-end Holidays Sale, and it has been flawless ever since. I subsequently added the optional 4 button footswitch and EXP-1 Volume and Expression pedal accessories. Each significantly adds to the Amp's functionality and enjoyment.

                  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.

                  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.

                    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.
