    The website...seriously...addresses this somewhat. I'll give you a few though. For instance the CJ11 is somewhat based on a tweed Fender Deluxe. The RSA 31 somewhat based on an AC30.

    also the amps are named after the initials of the session player that they are designed for

    Maybe I'm not up on recent session players, but I don't recognize any of those initials of the guys I'm familiar with.

    FTR - DR on crack? ... so ... does that mean it sucks for $10

    :D

    honestly, i have never understood the 'on crack' addendum ... it sounds to me like a really bad thing ... but i am guessing it isnt meant that way ..

    i kinda get 'on speed' or 'on steroids' ... but 'on crack' .. not so much

    On crack. I mean in the sense that its a tweaker amp, something outside the norm that you can't just go and build yourself. not an amp that goes behind a row house and lights up a rock in a glass pipe

    the FTR has all the capabilities of a Deluxe Reverb, but with a Marshall magic touch inside that deepens the tone and allows it to mix better with pedals as well as breakup at a much lower volume then a Blackface Fender typcially does.

    It is by far the staple of Fred's lineup and used far and wide. Ask anyone that has owned one or still currently has it. If volume is not an issue they are not planning on selling it anytime soon.
