1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Is there any difference in the specs and/or sound between the older Hot Rod Deluxe made in the States versus the newer ones assembled in Mexico?

    Have there been any other places where Fender HRDx have been made?

    The only differences I'm aware of is the audio taper pot. The USA had a more linear increase in volume and the newer versions go from 1 to loud as hell immediately. Easy fix though - had mine done. Still really loud though. One other thing is that the newer MIA versions have a bias knob.
