The idea is sound though, who doesn't want a low watt tube amp in the house?
Don't know about the ugliest in history ( some of those 80s Laneys and crates with the huge plastic corners would get my vote)
But they did miss the mark a bit..
It has none of the charms of the small Selmer or Watkins amps or even the Marshall Capri..Vox has done themselves proud with the blue AC4 and Marshall has its litte historic guys,I agree Fender has dropped the ball with this styling..not represenitive of them at all.
I would have preferred something along the styling of a pint sized reverb unit, perhaps with some non traditional colors available..heck it could even include a reverb tray..perfect infront of a 600 or PJ.
A pity as I have a small stock of GE and RCA 12at-7s that would probably make it sing...
Perhaps the bloom will rapidly fall from the rose..so to speak
