I'll try to keep it short, since this little amp's greatness has been repeated extensively. Here's my experience; I'm a 38 year old husband and father of two who plays (Tele) at home for enjoyment with the hopes of jammin with some people soon. I play acoustic at church, but I want to develop my Tele skills. I wanted something small enough to play at home without waking the kids at night and having my wife fuss about volume. I got a 600 Champ, which while it is a nice sounding little tube amp with sweet tone, it really is a "one trick pony." I wanted something that would let me play with different sounds for the same low price and portability. After carefull consideration and research, I got the G-Dec Junior. I could not be happier. The backing tracks were probably the biggest reason for my purchasing this, but the tones are actually quite good for a digital modelling amp. It's simple to use, cute as can be and it really captures that Fender sound on the "Tweed". Trust me, I tested it side by side with the Champ and the tones (on Tweed Clean) were surpriseingly similar. No, it's not going to capture the dynamics of a tube amp, but the tone is undeniable. That AND you get 15 other models, backing tracks (which are invaluable for practicing timing) effects and a tuner? It really is a no-brainer. A couple of the amp models are useless to me, as I don't play metal or anything like that, but for clean and overdriven sounds like the one on the Tweed, Blackface, British and Hot Rod settings, make this amp worth having. If you're looking for a practice partner and you're on a budget, you can't go wrong with this. Really. After you've gotten your playing where you want it to be, then go and get the tube this-and-that amp. By the way, yes I kept my Champ. Those retro looks are so cute, it just might be a collector's item someday.

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.

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.
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.
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.
Everything is OK with this amp very good sound very simple to use and really good to study and teach.I have 3 of them in my classroom,Thank Fender
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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...
