I'm a gigging musician and I also teach in my spare time. I recently bought a couple of these through Musicians Friend for giving lessons. I also own a 15 watt VYPYR for teaching and I must say I prefer almost everything about the G-DEC over the VYPYR. The only thing this is missing is a tuner. The tone is incredible. I can't say enough about it. It's not a tube amp that I would use for gigging but for it's application, I couldn't imagine a better sounding amp. It's very flexible and can go from pristine clean to semi-clean to crunch to heavy distortion. All of which sounds very good/cool. The on-board effects are great. Especially if like me, you like to add a little delay when you play. I really like the I/O interface for being able to play along with an mp3 player. This is great for teaching. The built in drums and bass are nice to jam with and also a good teaching tool. They are not the most flexible but you have wide variety of beats and styles and you can vary the tempo. I've play many little practice amps (peavey, rocktron, other fenders etc) and this little guy is far and away the best out there (especially for the price). It's not an amp that would work for playing at volume i.e. with a full band - drummer, bass etc, But it is a fantastic practice amp with tone so sweet it will make you want to play your guitar.I give it 5 stars!

Received my G-DEC Jr. yesterday and although a great practice tool, I found it lacking in tone and volume. The knob interface is easy although the script around the knobs is very small. Used with a Gibson Melody Maker the volume was decent, but with a LP Jr. the volume fell off quite a bit. Careful when you pick it up by the handle. It's way unbalanced! All in all a keeper, but I'll have to do something about the speaker.

A Perfect Amp

By Forgoneconclusion

from Phoenix

See all my reviews

I am a pro musician, recording engineer and have been playing since I was eight. I am in my early fifties now. I have owned Marshall stacks, have been one of Rolands first customers, had a few Craigs...basically you name it. Have owned Rolands mini cubes with amp sims just for my home playing...in terms of just pure sound including all the amp sims this is perhaps perfection. Buy this amp it is a heartfelt joy.

Good amp but not good enough any more.

By Rick Shank

from westlake ohio

I have owned this amp for about 3 years It came in a package with my squier strat which is also now 3 years old. First I will start off with the good. It is a great practice amp. very durable considering I have thrown mine across the room out of anger and there is a bit of a ding but I picked it up and it started right back up. It has a boat load of onboard effects. These amps can take a beating mine has been thrown dropped and slammed and works every time. The bad of it is that any high gain distortion will sound like **** on it because it can't handle the lows too well and highs arent great either. However if you just use the effects on the amp then it is fine. Not much bad except that. If you have been playing for more than 2 years though I suggest something better like a marshall.

CHtahoe

By chtahoe

from Left Coast

Bought this model 1 year ago as I needed an amp that could do just about everything. This little monster pretty much does do it all. The bass line accompanyment is very limited, but does offer something in addition to the drum machine (which is also very limited). The small cabinet and 8" speaker are OK, but I built a larger cabinet with a 12" speaker and WOW did this little monster come to life! Cleans are typical Fender, and the Amp models are very good. Reverb is decent, not as good as spring reverb, but good.Overall, probably one of the best buys in the small amp market. Sounds better, more authentic than the Line 6 types as I think they sound too "digital" to my ears.

good but..

By guitarnerd-XvOQ7

from bellingham WA

See all my reviews

I like this amp. yes it is very VERY loud. good rock 'n roll amp but that is it's limit. i use a ds1 with it because the two together make an amp that feels like a 100 watt stack but one that looks like a harmless little 1x8. if you play metal don't get this amp get an ibanez Tone blaster xtreme. as far as efects go most of them are good i just don't like the flanger. other than that, the chorus adds a pretty jingle to your clean tones and even leads. reverb can get VERY wet. the delay is good but it is very soft. tremolo is a top notch effect like the chorus and reverb. This amp is good for practice, studio and the young player. one thing that mainly defeats the purpose is the fact that this amp has NO footswitch. which is fine if you prefer pedals but not OK when you like having different footswitchable channels in your rig. i like this amp but as of now i have grown out of it and am looking at an ibanez TBX to replace it. it served me well. now i am moving on.

G Dec

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

its a good starter amp but as you get better the sound is not goin to sound as good because your ear is learning to pick up tone you didnt hear before so the distortion may sound to heavy at times and its to small to play a show

Great little amp

By the band freak (look up the band)

from Mass

See all my reviews

I ordered this amp a few days ago and it even came early. This amp produces an unexpected amount of volume for its size and wattage. Also it is basically the ultimate tone for the price not the equivalent of the top end marshall and fenders but really good for 15W $150. Also the amp models are great (also considering te price) and the effects (same thing) are phenominal. Also the backing tracks are great for soloing. This is the best possible amp for the money and is great for even advanced players.

Great for soloists

By 12StringLeadPlayer

from North Carolina

What a great amp! I have been doing a lot of recording. I don't have access to drums or a drummer, and this fills that void. The amp selections and effects selections are great. I added a 12" speaker to this amp and got phenomal sound - good bass response. It's helped me be a much better guitarist.

Best Practice Amp... EVER!!!

By SixAngryStrings-KQeRl

from Southern California Desert

See all my reviews

I would first like to tell everyone... THIS IS A PRACTICE AMP!!! So don't expect something to gig with. Anyways, second, it's not just a practice amp, it's the single most, BEST, practice amp on the market today... Designed to do exactly what it does, and does it well I may add. For what it is, the tones out of this thing are amazing... I chose the Junior for it's simplicity... my brother has the "other" model, while just as great (same wattage and speaker size), and fun to play, I found myself messing with the presets to much, trying to achieve "the PERFECT tone"... which isn't going to happen, obviously, but what I'm trying to say is that I was just wasting time... I wanna play, not program... and it's less $ than the other amp, which is a plus. If you're thinking of spending $ on a Marshall or Ibanez or Randall or whatever little practice amp this size and price range, do yourself a favor and get this, it will improve your playing skills and be a lot more fun... Not to mention the tones blow everthing in this pricerange/amp category away... For example, Line 6 just came out with the SpiderJam... I'm sure it's fun, but their tone with practice amps suck... let alone not something you could gig with at all... With that money, get this, save a little more and get a Fender Blues Junior... Then conquer the world. Nuff' Said.

Bought one today. Played with it for about 30 minutes - loved the tone, all was well. Then the sound started slurring and the whole unit went dead... Disappointed, because I was really liking the Blackface, Tweed and Hot Rod amp models...

Fender G-dec Junior amp

By Lennie-oqb-K

from New Jersey

This little sweetheart is a great writing, practicing, and teaching tool that inspires, entertains and brings out the best in what you want to use it for. I was surprised by everything is it, and it's small enough to tuck away for the next time to use it. Rock on, Fender!!!

great learning tool

By pickster

from Alabama

I puchased this amp for one reason and, that was to work on my lead playng. It is great. It never gets tired of playing, it will play anything you want and not complain. Its the most fun I have ever had with an amp. Easy to use and set. The tone is not bad for a small amp. If you dont like it. play through your main amp and let this guy do all the work. My only complaint is the marking on the amp are so small I have to get my glasses to read them but,I highly reccomend this practice. Its great.

Great amp PERIOD!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Just bought this amp today and I was very impressed when i plugged into it at the store. The loop tracks are perfect for warming up before a show and Fender was right, it is for all skill levels beginner to pro. I love it because now I dont have to drag out my pedal board every night just to practice what my band plays. All the distortion and effects are there helps lead players (not just lead players) get there timing on track. Look into one you wont be dissappionted, Fender is the greatest enough said.

Good first amp

By Slashrulez-R2AxQ

from Pennsylvania

While reading this review, please keep in mind that this is my first amp, and my opinions may be biased as such. This amp is great for a beginner. It is fun to use and will keep you wanting to play. It is also very easy to play along with all of your favorite songs because of the wide variety of sounds you can get out of it. I play a Yamaha Pacifica 012 through this, and all of the amp types sound good. I do have a few minor problems with this amp. Whenever I plug my iPod in through the line-in, the quality is very bad. I am not sure if this is in my amp or the cord I use, but keep this in mind. Also, the sound quality takes a serious dive at high volumes, but that does not matter very much to me as I usually just play by myself. It would have been nicer if this amp was a little cheaper, but I don't know whether this price is a good deal or not. Overall, this is an amazing amp, much better than any cheaper amp I have used that friends own. I would recommend this amp in a heartbeat.

This was my first amp, it came in a deluxe fender Squier package and is great for at home and beginners.The only 2 things you really need with this amp is a noise suppressor and a wah and you have everything a beginner-amateur guitarist needs.

Good FIRST amp

By Priden'joy235

from Dayton, OH

I bought this guitar about a year ago, when I was inexperienced with the likes of electric guitar amps, as I have been an acoustic guitar player for all of my life. After learning much more about amps, I realized I could've gottena much better deal than this amp. There is only a master volume control, no controls for low, mid, and high. The effects are decent quality, and there is a pretty crappy drum/bass loop. I've been looking at the Peavy Vypyr 15 combo, and would consider it a better, cheaper alternative to this amp.

bought it as a gift........

Ask me a question

I originally bought this amp as a christmas gift for my niece but after trying it out to''make sure it worked" I soon found I wanted to keep it for myself!Of course I did'nt,and the gift was a winner....but after playing around with this thing for a couple of weeks your playing starts to noticeably improve,and if you're not in a gigging band its nice to have something to jam along to.Sure it wont have all your favorite songs to jam to but its got some pretty cool progressions and you can pick any key you want to play in.And yeah I'm buying one of my own.

Not bad for what it does

By ctgblue

from east coast USA

See all my reviews

Ask me a question

The G-Dec Junior is much easier to use than its big brothers. All knobs, no menus, no brainier. The controls are few but functional. Multiple amp models, of which some are bad, some passable, and only a few are what I'd call 'good'. Built in effects are usable but not spectacular. Gain, Volume, tone for guitar limits adjustment, but is good enough to find a decent tone. Backing tracks make this product worthwhile, adjust styles, tempos, and keys for any included style, regardless of amp setting (IE slow blues with metal guitar sound is possible, and fun) Since there's really nothing out there that does all of this at this price, overall and value get 9's. Quality gets a 7 because, well the sound could be better, it's almost an afterthought (but better than their other 15 watt amps). You could almost get a 30watt Spider III for this, but you'd have no backing band playing with you, and that in itself is invaluable. All this said, if I had extra $ I would pick one up for sure. Hope this helps your decision.

It has no clean channel.

By Thundersfan_LAMF

from FL

This amp has no clean channel, so don't think of using it with a pedal. But it has great full tone on pretty low settings. Also they cheat, level 2 is really 1on the volume, it makes no sound at level one. and it has no line out at all besides a 1/8th inch headphone jack. This amp is good to buy if you're on a budget though, that's what I did.
