Noventa? Noventa?

That's a stupid fucking name. I'd be embarrassed to buy that online, much less ask for it in a guitar shop.

Yeah, I like, but I'll prolly get the'Bullet instead of this because it's cheaper.

Doubt they will. The recent Fender reissue looks to have flopped. Unless it was a limited edition?

It makes more sense to make a squier version. Same as the bass vi. More people will drop a little dosh on something they might use now and again. Spending fender money on a 12 string odd ball is out of reach for most guitarists.

Not a guitar, but this silverface Vibro Champ is cool:

There's a Pro Reverb as well.

Funny though innit - 10" speaker will take away a lot of the Champ-ness, I think. And onboard reverb... It's weirdly close to a Princeton.

Yeah I thought that. A few odd things about this one. Hall reverb, so digital, not necessarily bad but worth noting. Plus the speaker is 3.2 ohms...weird.

Yeah, that's the same as a proper Vibrochamp.

Such beautiful little things. The Pro Reverb has an added Middle control and a proper spring tank:

but I love the form factor of that Vibro Champ.

if they came out with a 12 watt amp, with a 15" speaker and charged 350 dollars for it would any of you be interested ?

I agree with you on this.

The Pawn Shop series were priced like other comparable amps by other companies.

The ones that look vintage Fenders are priced like vintage Fenders.

£799 for the Champ. Think I’d buy a s/h 68 Princeton reissue instead. 5W at home would be cool, but I’m fine with 15W also. In fact, I’d like to replace my Laney VC15 as it’s fairly unreliable, and the Princeton would be a like for like swap.

If I was 100% getting a champ, I’d buy a real silver face for the same price as a reissue.
