Last week I sold my beef’d up, mod’d, customized Blues Jr to a guitar buddy of mine who made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. I had the amp for about 2 years and was itching for something with a little more punch. I guess I have G.A.S. (Guitar Acquisition Syndrome) for Amps.
Now I see this “Limited Edition” Jr and I just may have to take the Jr plunge again…
The Fender Blues Jr Limited Edition is a Pro Guitar Shop exclusive, with only 150 amps made in this fetching red tolex.
This new Blues Jr LE also sports a Wheat grillcloth and cream chicken head knobs atop it’s non-reflective black control plate, lending it a refined appearance you won’t see anywhere else. But fear not, the upgrades are not all cosmetic.
This Fender Blues Jr. Limited Edition also features a 12″ Celestion Vintage 30 speaker under the hood, giving it a warmth, clarity and harmonic richness that might surprise you, especially when paired with Fender’s superb new “sparkle circuit”. A pair of El84’s pump out 15 watts of tube goodness, and new rattle-reducing shock absorbers keep this combo quiet and buzz-free for optimal studio recording.
The Fender Blues Jr Limted Edition has a full complement of tone controls, including treble, middle, bass, and a foot-switchable “fat switch” for beefing up single coils, and a Spring Reverb circuit completes that unmistakable Fender sound.
