Overview

How can a modern legend like the Mustang digital amplifiers be improved? Simple—Fender did it again, bigger and better with the Mustang GT 100. Fender takes seven decades’ worth of experience crafting inspirational tools and use it to add new (and better) amp and effects models while making it easier to use all of this without sacrificing one iota of power. Fender made it easy to control a studio’s worth of authentic amp and effects models with one finger via Bluetooth and the exclusive Fender Tone app. Fender invented the world’s first WiFi-equipped guitar amplifier, making it easy for you to download the latest updates, access Fender artist-created presets, and connect directly with a community of other creative players and music makers like yourself. Fender created the Mustang GT 100 digital amplifier.

Packed with 21 classic amp models—everything from the renowned ’59 Bassman to modern metal—and 46 different effects, the Mustang GT 100 can easily recreate classic tones or create brand-new, never-before-heard sounds. Fender developed new algorithms with even higher fidelity and more realistic response, along with more signal path flexibility so you can move effects anywhere in the signal chain for creative exploration. Program your sounds in the studio on the Mustang GT 100’s large, full-color LCD display and then, with one hand, take them anywhere for the most realistic listening experience possible. 

Fender invented inspiring tone, and our updated amp models let your instrument’s voice and the dynamic nuances of your playing come through, reacting just like the originals to your every move. Lighten your attack to “clean up” your sound or dig in to make it grunt or howl—the Mustang GT 100 and its single 12-in. Celestion Special Design speaker reproduce every part of your performance or Bluetooth wireless audio stream with precision. Adding the optional MGT-4 4-button footswitch for hands-free preset/FX switching and looper control turns the Mustang GT 100 into a truly formidable performance powerhouse. 

Adding convenient, one-finger control to the Mustang GT 100’s power is the easy-to-use Fender Tone app. Not only can you connect to the Fender Digital ecosystem for learning and sharing, you can easily upgrade the amp’s capabilities, adding more power and presets without patching a single cable or plugging in a soldering iron. One amp for every stage, the Mustang GT 100 is easy for any player but powerful enough to go around the world.

I wasn't sure if I would be a fan of a modeling amp since I was really drawn to some of the higher end tube amps that I've played before, but for a solid state amp like this it can't be beat! Fender has definitely improved their mustang series amps by adding so many features not available before, like the Fender Tone app that allows you to control your amp completely from your phone, allowing you to download other people's tones, etc. The built in sounds are so great and I love how you can further adjust them to your liking with so many setting options. The other thing that drew me to this amp was all the basic needs that you would want in any music setting, like XLR line out, USB out for recording, foot switch capability, headphone and aux input...this amp just has so much to offer!! When you first take a glance at it in person you may think it looks heavy since it's a fairly sized amp, but once you lift it up, it is light as heck! I am very happy with this purchase and I am excited to see how Fender continues to make the amp better by sending out more updates for the amp, which you can download via WiFi!

Hmmm... Sounds great once you get it dialed in... The software is worse than bad... I sort of had tone presets the way I liked and then I tried to connect with my tablet, the Amp locked up and I was back to square 1 after doing a factory reset... As for tone presets on the cloud, you cannot download via Android and you have access to a limited number of presets from the cloud when going direct with the amp. Basically, anything you want to do with a tablet or phone is cumbersome at best... However, working with the setting and effects via the front panel controls is fairly easy and intuitive... My hope is that Fender keeps working on the software and eventually release a Windows interface...

    Recently returned the GL 40 for this and I like this amp much better. The smaller version was mediocre, but this is a better version if you can afford it. The Celestion speaker makes a huge difference.

      Comments about Fender Mustang GT 100 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

      I bought this guitar strictly for jamming at home. I have only had it for 2 days but I am amazed by the overall quality. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to connect to wifi and blue tooth, it's important to do the updates first or the app will not work. A lot of the presets will never be used by me but I have my tone dialed in. It's very important to adjust the EQ on the tone app, it makes a huge difference. This amp gets a lot of negative reviews because people don't know how to adjust the EQ. One you dial it in it will blow you away! The only thing it's lacking is that real heavy bottom end most metalcore players are seeking but most metal players aren't even looking at fender amps. I definitely recommend you check this amp out. Don't just scroll through the presets and walk away, dial it in!

          Comments about Fender Mustang GT 100 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

          I walked into GC last Saturday to purchase myself a Line 6 Spider V 120 1x12. I picked out a guitar, sat down in front of the amp and spent an hour going through it's paces. I loved the amp, decided to buy it, and stood up to walk around the other amps and make sure of my decision. Just for the heck of it, I saw the Fender Mustang GT100 and decided to give it a listen.

          I was stunned.

          I couldn't explain it; I was on program 001, and the sound was so full and rich after spending an hour on the Line 6 that I thought my ear was biased. So I tried other presets on the Fender. They sounded unbelievable. Every Fender from the past 60+ years was in there, plus Vox, Marshall, Hiwatt, Orange, etc.

          The sound is warm, full, crunchy. The cleans are wonderful, sparkley, and shimmer. You can hear real TONE going on. I went back and played the Line 6 Spider V and it was flat, lifeless, and digital sounding.

          The GT100 SOUNDS like a tube amp. The clarity and warmth are thrilling for a solid state.

          But then I discovered it had WiFi and a smartphone app. I walked out of Guitar Center with the Fender. I haven't stopped playing with it since. I can stream my entire music collection via Bluetooth from my iPod, while simultaneously changing parameters using the Fender Tone App also on my iPod.

          Using WiFi, I updated my amps firmware, then opened the downloadable content and began auditioning presets created by artists, Fender reps, and users, storing the ones I liked in the 100 or so blank presets.

          I'm simply overwhelmed at the thought going into this amp. With headphones and my iPod, I can jam with my music, try new presets online, adjust my amp setting all from my couch. It's the bedroom/practice amp I've always wanted, but it's large and powerful enough to gig with. I absolutely LOVE this amp, and would encourage anyone in the market to at least give it a listen. Hearing this amp live sold me.

          I've been playing 30+years. I also got the 4-button footswitch so I can use the looper

            Comments about Fender Mustang GT 100 100W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amplifier:

            I finally got to the point of being able to play a bit better as I am learning, and was searching for a better/upgraded amp than my practice amp. After talking to an associate, he sold me on the Fender Mustang GT 40 for practice, but I ended up returning it for the 100 because I wanted better tone and volume.

            Well this amp has by far exceeded my expectations!!! Between riffing on blues, or throwing down some Rock / Metal like Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC....this amp delivers in a HUGE way!. The ability to control it from a mobile device and download tones from the internet is crazy, and the configuration options to create your own sound are fantastic! You can even create set lists of tones so they are at your fingertips when playing.

            When I use this amp for practice, I barely get the Master volume above 2-3 because of how loud it gets, and even at those levels, it still sounds great!! When playing with friends I turn it up a bit louder, and depending on the tone you configure, it can get quite loud!!

            I am waiting for the pedal accessory so I can use the looper and drum effects to make it even better!

            I would recommend this to anyone considering a really great practice / small venue amp, you won't be disappointed! I would also say that if you can afford it, it is worth the price over the GT 40!!

                  I am a performing blues musician, always tweaking my sound and looking for the next great thing. A colleague performer uses one of these live and i was really impressed by the sound. I decided to pick one up a week ago. And I have to say; NICE. I have been playing with all combinations of amps, reverbs, effects and there is no end to it. I saw some complaints about the phone app and difficulties connecting and such. I have an iPhone 7, bluetooth and app work great and the app is stable. What i really love is the patches i can download from the Fender TUNE community. You pick one, it downloads and installs automatically on you amp. These are patches from WW players and artist, really great. I use this amp in the home studio and practices, still use my tube amp on stage (but that could change)

Went to set up wifi, needed to install patch, enter SSID, protocol, password and .....still cant connect. Have wasted almost two hours (fender site and instructions for issues) trying to get something set up that should be simple and straight forward. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT

                          Traded in a Line 6 Spider V 60 for this. The Fender is much easier to program, and sounds a lot better than the Line 6. I do get that the Fender has a bigger speaker, but I have to say that some of the amp models and effects are simply stunning. The foot controller is also much less expensive than the Line 6 as well. All I need it for is the looper anyway. I am very much into Line 6 products, I use a Helix LT all the time, but when it comes to the practice amps, this amp is head and shoulders above. I think you could even gig with it!

                            Can't say enough about this work horse. Bought it about 8 months ago and it's the first amp I've truly loved. Great tones and effects with more than adequate power. Best of all it weighs about the same as my guitar with case so, I can take it with me anywhere, gigs or practice.

                            My band mates immediately noticed the difference, I cut through the mix with a great sound while we're play. Bluetooth audio is a killer app. Need to hear a song, just play it via my phone, sweet!

                            Great Jazz amp. Simple to use and very light.

                            I compared this to the Boss Katana 100 and different digital Line 6 amps. When it comes to the jazz sound I want, all you have to do with the Mustang is turn it on, with the others, you have to find it. I'm sure they have it and I know they have competitive and maybe even better sound effects and online selections, but I don't like to spend my time on that. I want that to be available if I want it but I want simplicity to always be there as a natural sounding Jazz amp and that's what this is. I'm not sure if the amp alone could do a huge performance, but attached to PA speakers (which is what I do even with my most powerful amps) I believe it would do fine, especially for Jazz. I take off one star cause the grill looked a little too thin. The rest of the amp looks fairly solid. You can't expect an extremely solid amp that if very light; its one or the other. I am getting old and I don't always have assistance to carry amps like a Roland JC 120 around, so lightness is important to me right now.

                            I'm not a musician but I've been playing now for years. I enjoy this amp and will be playing it at a reunion in the next few days. I've had to hoist a few reverb amps by fender and Marshall but at this time in life I like the fact that I can hoist this one easily..and take it up a few stairs with no problem. the sound is important.
                            I've enjoyed this sound greatly and changing tones is so easy. From my phone no less. the mustang sound is without the heavy amp sound but other than that it is the fender sound I was looking for. Its just plain fun. With the up dates and checking for new sounds is great... Music should be fun and creative and now it is.
