I actually have a bit of GAS for this which is somewhat unusual as it’s digital and solid state! I’ve heard a few reputable guitarists say it sounds amazing and that they’d happily gig with it. Reviews seems very favourable too...

Lightweight, aesthetics are true to the original and should be a very reliable amp. Wonder if NZRS are gonna get any in?..

If you really want a Deluxe Reverb and nothing else, I can understand it. One of the beauties of modelling software, though, is the ability to have a variety of sounds from one rig. It seems a shame to limit it to one.

Yeah, have a read through the reviews and that’s the general jist. Apparently it’s a great pedal platform too.

The attenuation is a nice feature too. TBH I think most of the people that would buy this amp wouldn’t be overly interested in using it as a modeling type amp, I don’t think that’s really what Fender have pushed it out as. Definitely would consider it if NZRS get them in and the price eventually comes down a bit

Indeed. Modelling is cool, but only if you can be bothered. It definitely provides the ability to sound good connected direct to mixer. But option paralysis is a thing, plus that nagging feeling it doesn't sound quite as good as a 'real' one, driving constant tweaking and self 'tone-doubt'. Even with the fancy modellers you still need an amp and speakers so you can hear it... so its back to square one for me. These days I prefer simplicity of plug in and play. Something like this interests me more than a toaster :)

...when they finally arrive in store?
