I've been eyeing up a Blues Junior for a long time, and got to test one out a few weeks ago which left me quite impressed. Last week after another band practice with my Hot Rod Deluxe, after being constantly told to turn down (despite being about as low as I can go), and having a raging back and shoulder ache after carrying it around all evening, I took the plunge and asked my local guitar shop to get one in for me... I picked it up yesterday. I have to say, I'm more than a little bit disappointed. To my ears, it doesn't really sound very Fender-like at all... In fact, I'd say it's closer to a Vox tone. The deep, glassy Fender bass tones just aren't there, and there's a very Voxy midrange and top end. I really want to like this amp... Its the perfect weight, size and volume for rehearsals and small gigs. I just want more of a classic Fender tone from it. I know there are a lot of mods out there. I do still have an 8 ohm Jensen C12N lying around, which I've heard can really bring it to life. Just want some opinions before I go and void the warranty..
