    Really nice - classic looking rig. Assume that's the new one - I'll be interested in hearing from other owners.

    Not much going on in this club :)

    I just heard back from Fender that the new 2016 '57 Custom Champs are going to have different caps than the 2009 Champs to sound more like the originals.

    Any thoughts?

    I JUST bought a mint condition 2011 Champ for $750, first major gear purchase in a while and pretty stoked about it.

    I thought when they came out with the 57RI it was an accurate electrical replica of the original. Wasn't it?

    Picked up one of these a few months ago. Fantastic sounding amp!
    I also have a Vox AC10 and Blackstar HT-1r, which are both great, but have been collecting a bit of dust since getting the Champ.
