    I like the one that had the Merlin engine best.

    Fabulous aircraft and one of my favourites. Was pants until it had a British engine though! :p

    I've tried hard, but I can't get THAT tone out of my GT-100 ;)

    Dad flew the Corsair F-4U (VMF 124 Checkerboard Squadron), that had a Rolls Royce engine. He loved to brag about the engine when getting into internet debates, up to his death 4 years ago. They'd talk and argue about their planes like we do our amps. He loved the P-51 Mustangs too. He had huge models of these planes in our den growing up. He came out to Colorado in one of his visits, we went up to Estes Park and he found nice metal versions to send home to New York. Great memories....will always have affection for WWII aircraft.

    Fender4life already mentioned this in a separate thread: http://www.tdpri.com/threads/shocking-new-gt-update.774100/

    But for the sake of organization and future generations (?), here's the rundown on last night's major update:

    How to update firmware: https://tone-support.fender.com/hc/...pdate-the-firmware-on-a-Mustang-GT-amplifier-

    If you're using an Android or iPhone, you'll also want to update the Fender Tone app.

    Firmware Version 1.5.20 (Oct 9, 2017)
    • New Effect Models (9)
      • Fender Harmonic Tremolo: Straight from the great Fender “Brownface” amps of the early 1960s, this tremolo effect alternately emphasizes high and low frequencies for a distinctively swishing and almost phaser-like sound
      • EQ 5 Graphic: Inspired by the EQ from the Mesa Boogie Mark IIC+ amp, this five-band EQ is specifically voiced for guitar
      • EQ 7 Graphic: Inspired by the Boss GE-7 pedal, this seven-band pedal EQ is voiced specifically for guitar, with fine sonic tailoring
      • EQ Parametric: Three-band equalizer with parametric mid control, ideal for dialing in an exact mid-boost frequency for solos or for creating deliberate feedback
      • Vibe Unit: Inspired by the classic pulse of a Uni-Vibe pedal
      • Octobot: A distinctive octaver effect with prominent one-octave-down plus subtle one-octave-up capabilities for otherworldly “synthesized” tones
      • Envelope Filter: Automatic wah effect inspired by the temple-of-funk 1970s popularity of the mighty Mu-Tron III pedal
      • Round Fuzz: Inspired by the 1969 silicon-transistor version of the venerable Fuzz Face distortion unit
      • VariFuzz: A Fender-created fuzz effect similar to Round Fuzz, with the addition of variable tight-to-loose bass tonality
    • Improved Bluetooth connectivity for devices running Android version 6.0.1
    • Improved parameter sensitivity for several amp models and effects
    • Fixed issue with 60’s British amp model where Bright Switch appeared to be non-functional. This is a subtle effect that selects between Normal & Top Boost channels.

    Make you wonder why Fender put this amp out before all of that. I think they shot themselves in the foot by rushing it to market. Many people were turned away by the original offering.

    Many people were turned off by the shameless hatchet job done by Shane and others. They're boxy sounding? I got news for Shane and a few other, so is my new Helix. That fact is that Fender is making improvements and those enhancements are available to the current owners. That's pretty cool if you ask me.

    Fender did themselves no favors releasing it before the software was rock-solid, and probably should have had consultation with the more prominent YouTubers who would be reviewing their product first (I heavily rely on video demos before purchasing). I'm really disappointed with Shane's (InTheBlues) initial review. For someone who made his bones on the Mustang, he was very quick to write it off, despite knowing that the Mustang series has always needed fine tweaking (an attitude shared here as well).
