Been hunting for clean warm 6v6 tones in a small combo for some time. Sometimes the answer is hiding in plain sight. Zip up to Chuck Levin's where a full range of Fender is always on hand. I had the Chris Stapleton on my radar and gave it a quick spin. Definitely has its own voice going on but was not for me. Mostly due to earlier breakup than I wanted. Lots of assumptions got thrown out the window. I had a Deluxe on my radar too. Thought I needed the 12" speaker and more watts. Wrong. Thought a 10" wouldnt have enough low end. Wrong. Thought I couldnt dial in P90s to get my balanced warm sound. Wrong. All these assumptions kept me away from Fenders for years. What I learned is that for me - and my touch - which is probably a lot lighter than most - is to not look at the numbers. Stop listening with my eyes as Pete Cage once advised. The settings that sound great for me on Fenders don't look like what I dial in on my Matchless amps. Then things made sense. It was a close call between the 65 but the 68 won me over. Exactly the right size I wanted and the looks take me right back to the early 70s when these where ubiquitous. And just what is a drip edge anyway? Having lots of fun with the Edge Strat. Lesson learned: it doesnt have to be obscure to be good!
