    If you remember what this is designed to do, this amp will suffice quite nicely. It has plenty of power for smaller venues, the classic clean Fender tone and if you are using effects, (I use an RP-300 with mine), you can play with just about any kind of band with this amp. If you are expecting this to be a Mesa Boogie or a Marshall, you might be disappointed, but it will hold its own in a band with these guys. Remember what you are paying for this amp, take good care of it and don't trash the thing when you move it and this amp will serve well. Keep in mind that you can over-distort any amp if you push the speaker too far and don't try to out-volume a stack with it and you will be happy.

    I mainly would use this in my room from time to time, and have had it about two or more years. Recently I brought it to band practice because we practice at a coffeehouse but had to go to the room next door to practice and our vocalist needed it to sing thourgh. After a while the sound started to cut out. After about 45 seconds it would come back, and about a minute later it would go out again and so on. The next day my friend was using it to play guitar through. The same thing happened. I felt it and it was hot. So, it overheats and the sound cuts out. great.Pros: Clean sounds ok, but not a lot of eq options for clean. A lot of options for the distortion channel's eq. Loud.Cons: volume dos not come in until the knob is at about 2. does not have a "Master" vol. knob. Overheats and sound cuts out.Just don't buy it, unless you want to install a fan in it.

    GREAT AMP

    By Samuel Begemann

    from Undisclosed

    like i said before it can keep up with a band and my other two use a 30 watt 1965 silvertone tube amp (2x12) and everything else in the band. I have no idea why Fender stoped making it but if you can get it used GET IT.
    I use this as my main amp in a rock band and the overdrive is amazing just have to purchase a foot switch to turn it on and off plus the classic spring reverb is amazing.
    I have been playing it for over four years and has had no problem with it, love it. mine never overheats if you just keep it in an area where it can breath ( not right up against a wall )
    a great solid state 65 watt app that is very loud and can keep up with any band.

    It'll get you through

    By Matt-L9SBq

    from Georgia

    I've had it for about 7 months now. Since my November birthday. It's great. And it's hugely loud.Pros - Loud, gets over drummer, good clean channel, mine doesn't over heat, and good reverb (while it lasted.)Cons - Reverb buzzes like madness now, horrrrrrrible distortion channel, little EQ on clean channel, not heavy but bulky, Overall, this amp will get you through especially if you don't move it around much. It's great for the price. Of course, now it's discontinued, so it's at a better USED price.

    this amp is acceptable

    I own this and have used it with a Fender Stratocaster and it is great. However, when plugged in with a friend only one guitar could really be heard at a time. If you are played on your own, fine. But if you need two players all the time, stay away.

    fender fm 65

    By andymaciver

    from new hampshire

    i know when you own something it biases your opinion, but this amp is great! Some people have said the distortion sucks. Thats garbage! this amp rips and i'm playing a fender squire at the moment?! dude this amp is hella loud too. this is the best bang you will get for your buck. Its not super-fancy but i don't need all that extra hooplah. Turn this baby up, dial in your sound, and rock out with your jam buds....you'll love this amp.

    Not Terrible, but limited

    By xXshr3dXx

    from Kansas

    I've had the amp for over a year and its actually a good amp. Everyone is so upset about the overdrive, and actually I never use it. Just buy a distortion pedal people. The clean channel is very good sounding and you can get quite a few sounds out of it. But the reason I'm wanting a different amp is that it doesnt have any EQ setting or anything like that. Its just the basics pretty much. But the amp does have a great reverb.

    Good Value

    I've had my FM65 about a month, and I love it. I use it with my Ibanez twin-humbucker, fixed bridge solid body electric guitars, and it sounds sweet for blues and classic rock. It is loud enough for a full band, and the clean channel is especially nice.It is not an expensive amp, and it is not as heavy-duty as the more expensive amps. Nevertheless, if it's handled with a bit of care and not forced to do the job of a marshall stack, it will probably last quite a while.

    okay amp

    By metalhead560

    from La Porte Indiana

    this amp is only for guitarists that play jazz or blues. the overdrive is terrible and gets really muddy after about 5. i would recommend the fender fm65dsp instead of this amp any day.

    Mixed Feelings

    By Guitarguy75

    from Charlotte, NC

    It does have a lot of feedback, and it is a pain in the neck. The clean channel with the mid contour can really make some cool clean jazz effects.

    It's Alright

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    I use this amp at my school for jazz band. It has a good clean sound and the distortion is okay. The clean channel can really crank. It would be better if it had 3 band EQ for the clean channel thought. Reverb is okay. Overall a good deal on a good amp.
