"honest advise from experience"
i'm a tone freak, and this thing surpasses even my wildest expectations. it holds true to the name fender and is about as beautiful an amplifier as i've ever heard. i use it with a TS-9 and an old CE-1 chorus pedal, and hardly feel the need to turn either on for most songs. one suggested tone tip: derek trucks uses car audio speakers instead of the standard speakers that come with the amp. they absolutely s@@k, but it makes the dirtiest, sweetest distortion i've ever heard. he plugs straight in with no effects.
i hate baudiness and extras unneeded for real tone. like i said, i barely use the effects i own. perhaps the best feature non-tone related is the kick back stands on each side. i'm a gigger, and when you play bars and smaller venues, that's so very essential to being able to turn down to give your soundman room to opperate and still be able to hear yourself.
the only problems i had with the original super were the lack of a master volume and the unreliability of the amp. the reason derek trucks uses car audio speakers is becuase the originals quit on him right before a gig, and a car audio store was the only place open. it led him to better things, but i prefer a safe and efficient amp. fender fixed both with the reissue, adding the details of the later models, but staying true to the original tone. very cool
i've never had to call fender or ask for anything, so i have no way to say good or bad.
The Wow Factor:
i don't have one. i want it so much it pains me. i play through gear i despise at this moment (minus the pedals) and am saving money as best i can while going to college to buy one soon.
i've waited two years to buy this product, testing everything i could get my hands on. i keep coming back to the super reverb like a dog for a bone. i don't think i'll ever have to replace it. i've seen steve sweney and derek trucks both play through this marvel of amplifiers in outdoor venues and small venues alike, and the truth of the matter is, it's loud enough to dominate the stage, let the soundman dominate the crowd
