    Wow! This amp is awsome!

    I was looking at the Standard Edition and had the chance to play them side by side. here is what I found:

    1. Both Amps Great, but the Alnico speaker in the Limited edition was much warmer, clearer and musical. Further the Limited Edition model did not have the slight "Harshness" that is often reported in the Standard Edition.

    Don't get me wrong, both amps sound great! But the Limited Edition has much better clean tone than the Standard, no need for mods here.

    2. Were the Limited shines even brighter is with the voulume turned up. Becuase the Limited Edition has a lower wattage Alnico speaker (Vs. the Ceramic speaker of the standard edtion) The speaker it's self breaks up nicer than the standard edition. Great for those classic 65 tones!

    3. Made in America. Both Amps are, and I wouldn't buy them if they weren't. Good job Keeping Jobs in America Fender.

    4. It takes pedals very well. My overdrives and Delays sounded great!

    5. The fit and finish of the amp appeared flawless.

    If your looking for the best musical bell like clean tones, This is your amp. I love it.

    I think anyone who plays rock, country, or even blues would benefit from owning this amp. It sounds even better than my Twin Reverb RI. And...... it's a lot easier to transport. This has quickly become my #1 gigging amp. Being in a variety band, I play as many as 4 different guitars on any given night and they all sound great through this amp.
    This is a no frills Fender Amp. That's what makes it so great. It has the sought after Fender Reverb, old school looks, and that sound only a tube driven Fender makes. Blackface cosmetics make it look like a '65 and the special Jensen speaker sounds great.
    Overall, the build quality is good. Mine arrived with the pilot light not working. I removed the jewel, and found the bulb pushed way back into the socket. I had to remove the amp chassis from the amp cabinet and found the pilot light bracket had been bent back into the space behind the socket, and the bulb not latched into the socket. Installed the bulb correctly, straightened the mounting bracket and all was fine. But really.............. come on Fender, I spent $1000.00 on this amp and the pilot light is bent? Really?
    This is a great amp. Tone is unmatched, and even though it's only 22 watts, it is suitable for most venues you'd play. Mine is always mic'd and I continually receive compliments on my tone. The limited edition is a very cool looking amp. The burgundy tolex looks fantastic and guys are always asking me if I had it custom built. Even at a grand, it's still a good value in my opinion.

          Here's all you need to know; the Jensen P12Q in it sounds amazing but beware that it doesn't have the headroom or cut through punch of a speaker with a higher SPL. My Blues Junior with the C12N in it is actually louder despite putting out less power. My opinion is that the trade off is worth it though. You can always mike an amp.

          Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          Fantastic amp. Asthetically pleasing in 'Red Wine'. AlNiCo speaker at 40 watts (as opposed to the regular 100 watt) sounds awesome and begins to break up at about 5 (volume). Sooooooo much spring reverb and a really nice tremolo. Good mix of clean and dirty sounds.

          Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp

          By Dickie Greenwood

          from Abilene, Texas

          Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          This is a very cool looking amp - love the wine red cover with the wheat color face. Wish that Fender would make a custom cover to match the amp, rather than having to just use the standard black one. The sound is great, with a strong bottom end and lots of warm tone. You do get breakup sooner on this amp - at about 5 on the volume knob. This amp is much lighter and easier to handle than my Twin Reverb and I'll be able to play in venues where it's difficult to keep the volume on the Twin Reverb throttled down. I'm looking forward to putting this one to use and see what it delivers.
          The speaker and sound are different than on the regular Deluxe Reverb, but a nice sound on this one.
          On a Deluxe, there's no "mid" tone knob like on a Twin Reverb, but that doesn't appear to be a problem - just crank up some volume, treble & bass and then go on about making some music...
          No "bright" switch either - but not an issue for me since I seldom use that feature anyway.
          Also no volume/gain combination - however, I do like the simplicity of it all.
          The quality of this amp appers to be good.
          As with most everything, you get what you pay for. Although I have not had the chance to play any gigs through this amp yet - only practiced on it at home - it seems to be a good amp and I am pleased with the price/quality at this time.

          Great amp, at least the parts that work

          Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          I really like this amp. I love the sound and characteristics of an amp with 6V6's. Great sound with solid build. The limited edition colors look great. Just wish the reverb worked.
          Has just about everything you could want in an amp with the exception of a master volume/ gain combination. Nice having a regular channel and vib/rev channel. great vib sound.
          I just received this amp and the reverb is not working. Turn the reverb on and all I get is hiss, no reverb; the amount of hiss increases as the reverb level is increased. Going to see if it's just a bad tube (hopefully) or a bad reverb pan. Also the lettering is upside-down on the footswitch if you like having the cable running away from you, not toward. Aside from that, the amp components have a nice substantial feel with smooth operation. The parts that are working work great.
          Not a bad price for an amp that has the classic Fender sound and features.

          Its all good!

          Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          This is a different amp than the regular Deluxe. The speaker makes it so. It breaks up smooth and early. So you can get that sweet sound at a lower volume. When I first plugged it in I was unsure. But after having some time to dial it in...I love it. I used to almost always play my guitars with the volume knob almost wide open. Well to get some clean tone with this amp you have to roll off the guitar volume. I have been playing a Gibson Es 335 through it. Fantastic tone. Played a few gigs with it and it rocked! Im sure it would need to have a mic and put in the pa for any outdoor gigs or for large venues. But thats not a drawback because this amp does exactly what it is supposed to do.
          Love the look. Features of all the Deluxe Reverbs. So surprises there.
          Love the higher end Fender products.
          You have to pay for quality..

          Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          I have many amps been playing for over 40 years been there did this did that if you can't make this amp work of you in any situation then you better learn to play a flute. This a basic combo amp with great tone that you can take to a gig with out breaking your back it loves pedals. If you do some research you'd find the deluxe reverb can be heard many many recording. If I was allowed one amp and one only it be The Deluxe Reverb
          The color is cool is two channel amp just like they made in the old times and the Jensen alnico magnet nice! The Reverb is awsome and nice bottom end from a single 12 inch speaker
          Seems to be well built from what I can see. Its not hand wired point to point circuit but never the less for a production amp very nice
          Got a good deal from a friend Musicians Friend yep they know how to take of their customers thats why I keep coming back. The sales rep was out of sight he done me right!

          Worth every penny

          By mark chudy

          from New York

          Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          This is the amp that I've always been looking for! I've been playing semi-professionally for over 35 years and have changed amps countless times in what seemd to be a never ending search for "The Tone". Most of my amps were Fender - Super Reverb, Twin, Hot Rod Deville - along with Peavey, Yamaha, and Roland but I was never quite happy. I prefer a natural tone, not a lot of stompboxes, so making the right connection was a chore, to say the least. I have finally found it! The Deluxe Reverb Limited Edition sings! Every note rings like a bell with a natural breakup to give you just the right amount of growl. In the beggining, i was concerned that 22 watts would not be sufficiant volume to keep me in front of the drums during a lead break, but this amp has the balls to get the job done.
          In the case of the Deluxe Reverb Limited Edition, simple IS better. With ony a treble and bass knob to deal with, dialing in right tone is quick and easy. The tube driven reverb is sweet and a touch of vibrato adds a nice feel to the overall sound. 22 watts may not seem like much, but unless you're performing in a stadium, the amp cuts through just fine.
          A very solidly built, made in the USA amp. The wine red tolex is beautiful and the tweed grill cloth gives it a great retro look. And the 41lb. weight makes it much easier to carry into a gig than any of my previous amps.
          Worth every penny. I'm sure you can find less expensive amps all day long, but not with THIS kind of tone! you get what you pay for

          Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          It's really a decent amp, especially if you like the sterile non Fender sound that you get out of it stock. I'm so sick of everyone getting these little non master volume amps and trying to get a high gain distortion sound out of them. Go get a Marshall or Blackstar and be done w/ it.
          As far as features go, everything you could ever need in an amp. I've always been a fan of the Deluxe Reverb. I have an original blackface.
          I almost sent this amplifier back to MF. Would have been the first product I had ever returned to them. Here's the deal: The "special design" Jensen speaker sounds bad. The stock tubes sound bad. This amp doesn't even get close to blackface territory with the stock speaker and tubes. I replaced them, and could at least see a light at the end of the tunnel. I will take the amp out to a small show tomorrow and see how it does. If it's still not cutting it, it will go to the amp tech.
          Over all, you're getting a decent amp for your money. BUT, for all the changes that you will have to make to get it to sound to a real deal black face, you might as well get the real black face or early silver face, (still kicking myself). I'll dump the tubes and speaker to make some of my money back.
