DI would include Reactive Load and cab sim as standard on a lot of stuff... And again no to all of this.... Yes I get it wont be a rave with "traditionalists" but it makes sense to a lot of people. FX loop would be needed because Attuenation would allow possible to crank the amp and get into natural OD at lower volumes unlike with regular Reissues, this would make FX loop useful. Also a good substitute and alternative to FRFR for players seeking a tube amp for their NexGen modeller, Helix, Axe FX, Kemper....nothing would beat a Twin or Deluxe Reverb with an FX loop for this purpose....would convince many in this crowd to heavily consisder a Twin or Deluxdle Reverb for this application. They can figure out an FX loop and DI with cab sim rls. And as posted earlier a master or attunation would work like a charm. I think many players would appreciate the updates and compromise knowing this isnt exactly a Reissue And as said no one is proposing getting rid of the Reissues but simply extending the line to include these. It wouldnt take long for Fender to incorporate and develop their own DI rls and attunation systems and as for real estate and this and that....they happen to fit it in Super Sonics...they can figure it out here too. As said this video gave me proof for me that the concept is viable and can deliver and Fender can make something much the same and then the other stuff FX loop and DI with cab sim reactive load only follow naturally and easy. At 3/10 or 1/4, even for traditional players, some see a need for these. At TGP 1 out 2 players believe it to be sound and at Strat Talk 6 out of 10 players... In my opinion players do want something like this and it is totally possible to make something what like this concept proposes. Look at this Vintage Princeton do its magic with one of these and still sound like its crancked at lower volumes....doesnt seem like its a complicated device and it works perfectly.
