I own a version I of the 40W SS Mustang II amp which is a terrific little machine but it needs a pc and some knowledge to get presets, store them, manipulate and use them...

This new V2 of the Mustang 4 is simply magic... after breaking in the speakers the tones one can get from this just by tweaking the existing 100 presets is astonishing.

I have played mine for the last 2 weeks (bought it New (box opened) from Musician's Friend). Initially I had a little hiss which I traced to my lead... replaced this with a Fender Custom shop 18 foot lead and moved my amp to my large room and wow, this is GREAT.

The V2 versions of these amps have some minor tweaking of some of the Fender preset amps (Deluxe '57, Twin Reverb and Supersonic all sound even closer to the real thing)...

The new effects are fun to play with... I have tweaked the Loud as Leeds preset and a few others and used the new effects, including big fuzz, green screamer, orange box and intelligent pitch shifting... all fun to use and for a competent pro a bonus over needing so many pedals.

I took mine to an Open mic in the Hamptons last week where they gig with about 20 different pedals. One of my mates has the Mustang III and we were both tweaking his amp (v1) and mine (v2)... the version 2 and 150 watts is REALLY LOUD. The one real pro musician at the gig ha ha'd our amps until he tried the Hendrix presets.... our Red House Blues, Little Wing and Hey Joe presets sound spot on and he preferred ours over his manufactured with his pedals and Marshall etc.

Loudness - I have a Bernie Marsden SE (PRS) which has really high output Pups and wow on most settings I have my guitar volume at 2 and the Master on the amp at 3 (it is really loud). Using my low output Pups on my Strat (Vintage Noiseless) I can put the volume on my guitar to 8 with the same 3 setting on the amp master...

At the gig in a 1000 sqf pub we were told to turn down the volume (the master was on 4 and the volume on 5, guitar on 5 on a Gibson).

Speakers - I broke in my speakers by playing on lower volumes for 6 hours each day and then put a tone through overnight on higher volumes... all sounds good now.

The one big advantage of the Mustang III-V over the II is the on-board LED display. It takes some work to learn how to tweak the various knobs for the mod/amp/delay/reverb etc but after a week or so I have got it down pat (without using my pc).

The 4 button foot-switch is a nice touch and the ability to remove the various effects with each preset adds some flexibility.

Tone - okay it is not a tube amp, but really who cares... I have played many one or 2 trick pony tube amps over time and with this I get near perfection just from the basic amp presets, especially the Fender clean presets.

This thing weighs around 50 lbs and was quite clunky to move up my stairs in my house.

I bought this and my Mustang II from Musician's Friend who have given me outstanding service on every item I have bought.

These V2 amps are really popular and have some wait time to order (demand is huge) but they are worth every penny and the wait time.

I knew that I was getting into a modeling amp when I purchased the Fender Mustang IV, and was really excited to have all the different presets, and the effects modeling, and the ability update the amp, and I thought that being a Fender the sound quality would be a step above, boy was I wrong. It is next to impossible to get a straight forward clean sound out of this thing. Even when you have all of the effects and other extras off, the tone is still completely and very noticably digital! It just killed me that I couldn't get a clear tone out of the amp, it has something missing in the fullness of the sound.
As far as the presets go, there are many, but very few that sound good, and of the ones that sound ok, the quality of the tone is mediocur at best. I wouldn't recommend using this amp professionally at all, now if you're a kid jamming in the garage and want a bunch of different noises to play with, and want to be able to plug into the computer and record, or join the on-line community, this would be great for you. But if you're a serious player and want/need a clear and crisp tone, leave this one alone. My advise is know what you're getting into when you by a modeling amp, no matter who it is made by!

    Comments about Fender Mustang IV V.2 150W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

    I have had just about every Half Stack,Combo brand out there over the years. Tube,SS ive had them..My band has been playing more and more shows this year in and out of clubs and i wanted to try a all in one amp for shows.This thing is just the trick for me.I have a Fender twin for clean with chorus and delay and a 5150 rock tone for dirty. I use the 4 and 2 buttonswitch for my set up. With those i can do anything.I mic up this amp on stage and have the vol at 3 and rock with the other guitar player in the band and he is using a all tube half stack. No problems hearing myself. And i like the tone better than my last amp the Orange CR120c. Great amp Fender!

      Comments about Fender Mustang IV V.2 150W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I have owned many amps over the years, combo's, heads, SS, hybrids, all tube, from an array of manufacturers. Ever been in the situation where you love the amp, but then you tend to find weakness'so for one reason or another. I purchased a mustang 3 v2, modded it to run a marshall 2936 212 cab, what a fresh breath of air, no loud hissing, sweet cleans, great amp models and no pedals all over the floor, waiting for one of them to play up. Now purchased the big brother mustang lv. So no cab to lug about. Fender have really nailed the sounds out of these amps, they just don't sound sterile like most SS amps, they even react like a tube amp, cleaning up if you roll of your volume on guitar. Imo they are under priced. There defo on a winner with these amps, reliability? Who knows, guess to early to tell with V2s. Some YouTube shootouts with original classic vintage amps, people have been unable to tell the difference. Well done fender.

          Comments about Fender Mustang IV V.2 150W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

          I Love this Amp! I just started playing again after about a 9 year hiatus. My gear was in sad shape so I decided on some new stuff. This amp is way more than what I need at this time, which gives me some room to grow. It has plenty of pre-programed tones. The only drawback is navigating through the presets with just he amp and footswitch is minor. The "Fender Fuse" software is easy to use (my desktop way exceeds the recommended requirements). I got a killer deal on a used 2 button footswitch and EXP-1 pedal which also improves the use of this amp. I recommend this product. The features and price make it a great value.

                Bought this for my son for Christmas. Played with it a little to make sure it works. Love the 4 button pedal that comes with it. So many ways to tweak your sound. It may take a while to figure it all out, but the possibilities and combinations of tones, reverb, chorus, distortion, and whatever else you're looking for are endless. This is also a very powerful, loud amp. Love it!

                  This amp is awesome! Takes a minute or two to get the hang of adjusting and customizing the sounds but after you get it, you can take off with it. Has beautiful crystal clear clean tones and the dirty sounds aren't anything to sneeze at. Definitely the best bang for your buck.

                    I have had the amp for a little over a year. I play vast musical genres and have done plenty of gigging. I got the amp to replace a tube amp that had been stolen from me in a gig.

                    At first I was not thrilled but I realized that using the fuse software, I could create specific patches to meet my needs without having to go through the amp's presets which can be hit or miss. Not that they sound bad but they just did not sound like me.

                    The four button footswitch is amazing and gives you the option to choose just one effect and in essence use that footswitch as a pedal board which is amazing when going on gigs and not having to worry about power supplies and the bulk of pedal boards.

                    All in all, I love the amp. It'll never have that tube sound but it's close enough and you cannot beat it for the price.

                    Comments about Fender Mustang IV V.2 150W 2x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

                    The Mustang IV is not a small amp, it weighs enough to make it difficult to move between gigs, but it's worth the effort to play with a dual 12-inch combo amp.

                    With 100 presets and some great sampling of classic amps such as VOX, Marshall, Silvertone, and nearly all the vintage Fender amps of the past such as the Champ, Princeton, Twin, etc- if you can't find a tone on this amp you never will on any amp. It's just that good.

                    If you want to customize tones further you can create your own and store them to the amp if you own a computer, and take the time to download the Fender FUSE editing software. Attach a USB cable to the AMP and CPU, and you can download your own custom tones.

                    The headphone jack is handy for practicing at home without disturbing the neighbors, and this amp has all the power you need to crank out some serious volume.

                    The only downside I can mention would be out of 100 presets, a lot of them you'll never use, as a few are useless trashy tones someone at Fender thought were cool, but they're far from it.

                    With the 50 tones that are on this that still sound great, you can make some fantastic music on this thing.

                    Put it on a clean mode, add your own pedals, - just like any other Fender, it sounds great.

                    The price is right. There's competition from Line6 and Peavy but their amps are not as nice IMO.

                    If you are considering a modeling amp- look no further. This one will meet and then far exceed your expectations.
