      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.

        I own over 6 amps (Super Reverb '65, Bugera, Vox, Line 6,...). This is my current favorite. Practically noise free, easy to get full range clear sounds. And it can get very loud. No buzzing - just really great sound.

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

        I'm a professional guitarist and I have been mostly a PV man for years. I bought this amp based on the reviews written. This amp is very clean and very quiet for a low end solid state. It cuts right through the mix and my band loves the sound. If your a weekend warrior like me this will fill any venue that you play so you cant go wrong. If you want more bang for your bucks buy this little guy.Portable, lite weight, and sounds great.

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

        This is the 2nd one I've bought. Love them! They are everything a clean amp should be. The reliability and consistency of solid state is awesome. They handle pedals well, as long as they are clean tone (think flanger and chorus, not distortion). The true sping reverb is a huge bonus.

          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.

            I really like the amps....I have two.
            I had to send one back after two years of heavy gigging, Fender stood by the warranty.
            The only con that I have about this amp is the pedal switch...three amps and three pedals gone. They do not hold up to very many gigs

              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:

                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!

                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.
