The much sought Hot Rod Deluxe sound with a striking Emerald Isle Finish.

The Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 40W 1x12 tube guitar combo amp in Emerald Isle Finish is part of the Fender Hot Rod series of amplifiers that can be found on stages around the world. The Emerald Isle Finish gives the combo an eye-catching look. Guitarists in a variety of genres have made the Hot Rod Deluxe their go-to amp. They deliver unmistakable Fender tone and are the perfect platform for musicians to craft their own signature sound. These no-frills amps are affordable, reliable and loud, and they pair extremely well with stomp boxes.

    Comments about Fender Hot Rod III Deluxe 40W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp w/Emerald Isle Finish:


    I would make this one short: if you really love the guitar in a non too-restrict-to-one-single-genre/sound way, you must at least try this amp. It`s the essence of at last 50% of what the guitar sound is, you can do a lot with this monster. Seriously, I thought I was happy with my tone, until I`ve tried this one and instantly I knew that was the real deal.

    Don`t matter the finish, this is a great amp for any guitar lover out there.

    In terms of the service Musician`s Friend offered: top store. I`d a great price for mine and they`ve shipped perfectly through UPS all the way to Brazil in 4 day time for free (lucky coupon).
