What can I say that I havn't already said.... The store I bought it from was MF over the internet. I did go and test it at GC that is close to my house, but I buy from MF. I have NO COMPLAINTS about them....They are by far the BEST PLACE TO BUY FROM.....I MEAN IT TOO!!!!
This is a GREAT amp. For the price, your foolish not to buy this amp. I have played guitar for 20+ years and toured with Toby Keith from 1988 - 1993. This amp will do what you expect it to do. Since retiring from the big show, I now play small gigs (50 - 100 people) and at church (400 - 500 people) It is perfect for what I need. I do mic it when playing at church and that is only because I keep the amp out of sight, allowing more room on stage. It doesn't need to be miced, it can be VERY LOUD TOO.... I play my Fender Tele and my Gibson Les Paul along with 7 effects pedals w/ this amp, I also play my Gibson Acoustic through it to. All 3 sound GREAT through the amp. It is well built and looks great. It's a Fender... If I had to change anything about it, it would be having the availability to put wheels on it. The amp weight is 48lbs.
It is a HIGH QUALITY amp. It is WELL BUILT, SOLID and STRONG @ 48lbs. Its a FENDER. I was surprised at its quality for Such a Low Price.
For the price, you are foolish not to buy this amp. It sounds the same if not better then amps costing as much as 3x its price. You will not be sorry!!!

Should satisfy most peoples' requirements for a small to medium size venue stage amp or rehearsal space amp.
Nice, simple, clean, control layout. Shouldn't take more than 30 seconds to find a tone you like. Adjusting the tone controls on the clean channel affects the total volume output slightly more than expected. Not a big rating point deduction on that, but it should be mentioned.

The clean channel is very clean and quiet. By quiet, I mean no loud hums or static/noise. Even at full volume the clean channel was still clean.

The distortion channel was quite good, for an amp less than $300. 95% of the people who use the distortion channel would probably be quite pleased. I was. The other 5% will complain that it doesn't sound like an overdiven Marshall with valve tubes. But, this isn't a Marshall tube amp.
Great quality all around.
For the price, a great value. 100 watts with 2x12 inch speakers and included footswitch. Can't complain.

fender frontman rocks

By robert fleshman

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Frontman 212R FSR Limited Edition Red 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

get one now before the're gone
I've recently sold a Blues Deville combo to a friend. Great old amp, but to heavy for me to toot around. I bought the Frontman, and was pleased to hear the power, and at 48lbs. itit very portable.
I'm still triing to dial it in but the set up is easy.
took it to a jam sesion last night, againt Marshalls and another deville. the frontman stood its ground and barked right back. get one while they last. can't beat the price. wasn't happy when delivered ups beat the box up pretty good.
looks great sounds better
can't beat the price

The Newest and Best Fender's ever 212 Frontman

By charlie pigg

from All over Las Vegas

Comments about Fender Frontman 212R FSR Limited Edition Red 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

The name and the price were the first thing and then this amp needs to be compared to a much better product's. The color kind of kick too. the thing i did not like was the reverb it almost non exsisted comparted to real fender it had to be repalace by a boss 63 reverb pedel. It could use tilled back legs which it probabbly did not get to keep the price down also a headphone jack would be cool. the effects loop is the coolest thing sense the stratacaster which i own 3 of and will be the guitar used with the amp.
will buy again in the future from you Musician Friend.

This new and yes I did say new Fender is a good as the one my father bought 45 years ago.The price is unbelievable it worth 3 times what i payed for if and i cant say enough good about it. 3 channels the #1 world famous Fender clean channel #2 a gritty cross between a Twin pegged and # 3 the super gain channel this does not sound any Fender even when we used too chain two twins together and use distortion pedal on one of them. Anyone think of getting that 2nd amp should look at this for the price it can't be touched. And by the way I own both of the big M's Marshall and Mesa Boggie.Thanks Fender I'll be back for more.charlie CHAZ pigg$teal Profet'$Las Vegas

      Comments about Fender Frontman 212R FSR Limited Edition Red 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      What we have here is a 100W Fender amp with two 12" speakers. Yes it's solid state, but it's also only [$]. If you're looking for a great clean sound and power to spare, look no further. I've only had my amp for ten days and have not had the opportunity to turn the volume past three on the clean channel and two on the more drive channel. I think the week link of the amp is the reverb. iIt's there, but it's subtle. I did read online that for $30, you can get the improved, larger reverb tank, which fits, in the amp easily and uses the same two connectors. For now, I'm just going to enjoy mine as is. I did add four 2" swivel casters that I got at [@] for $3.49 each and while 48 lbs might be light to many of you, this 61 year old is enjoying his casters.

      Comments about Fender Frontman 212R FSR Limited Edition Red 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I can't say enough about what I like in this amp. esp. if you're playing a strat or jag thru this amp, you
      are going to love the sound.
      I'm in love with this amp. Reminds me of the 60's and the twin reverb, but with the added features of
      some great crunch!
      It's a fender, need I say more!
      I would tell anybody to buy this amp. You'll never find another amp with this value for this price.

      Great Amp for a Great Price

      from Minnesota

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Fender Frontman 212R FSR Limited Edition Red 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      This amp is fantastic for the price, and even though it got me in trouble with my girlfriend, I'm still glad I bought it. It's small enough to transport easily yet loud and powerful enough to keep up with a drumset. The sound is great and I love the included footpedal. The thing that really hooked me was the red shell, because it gives the amp it's own unique character. Obviously you aren't going to get a cool tube sound with this amp, but if your expecting anything like that then you probably need to do some more research. This is a great amp for what it is, and the price is worth it
      It comes with a foot-pedal to allow switch between clean and two layers of distortion. It also includes two inputs to allow a guitar/guitar or guitar/microphone simultaneous play.
      Everything is quality so far, but I've only had it for a couple weeks.
      I think the price is great for what you get.

        Comments about Fender Frontman 212R FSR Limited Edition Red 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I beleive the FM212 is the best souding solid state there is. The clean sound is perfection. Along with the built in reverb, and at 100watts, this amp is enough to play out in any venue.
        I dont really use the gain settings. I think that they sound okay, but prefer the sound I get from my pedals. This is my second of these amps, and I love the funkiness of the red color.
        These amps last forever, have good speakers, and great tone. Never have to worry about blow out fuses or speakers when cranking it (I have never found any situation where I could get the volume past4). This thing gets loud without getting muddy or shrill. I love it.

        Bought four Fender 212R

        By GLEN MARTIN

        from Samson Alabama

        Comments about Fender Frontman 212R FSR Limited Edition Red 100W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

        All I can say here Is I am pretty much 100% Happy with the four amps sound & functions. Placed in the east , west , north & south they give a good stereo quad sound,Not many guitarist do stuff like this but hey..............I do!
        I love the clean sound & the reverb distortion is so so but personal effects should be used if quality is desired.
        Loves fender products!
        Bought four of these to run concurrent & the price I paid was well worth it!
