    With any luck this will be my last, at least for several years. As many of you know I bought a new PRRI Limited Edition (the burgundy at GC with the Jensen P12Q) and it quit on me after only a few weeks (power tube most likely). I loved the tone, reverb, and vibrato while it lasted but the headroom was limited, probably due to the P12Q speaker. I then bought a new floor demo Blues Deluxe but it made intermittent static noises even with nothing plugged in, and the reverb was weak or defective. Hopefully the 3rd time is the charm as they say, I am getting tired of this merry go round and want to get off. They wouldn't extend the 15% off again even though the returns were not my fault, but GC does have the $10 gift card for every $50 that you buy today, but it is good in store only and only during one specific week.

    Modern Fender QC stretches to one amp per batch. Construction and components quality isn't up to much either.

    Stop buying them through GC! It's not Fender quality control... more like GC warehouse management! Or... did they see you coming..Stores like GC will sell you anything... How do you know what you bought didn't already come back from a return? not kidding when I said go direct... and you will never have a problem.

    You are finding out the hard way that anything you buy at GC could be used, not new. Because of the no-questions-asked return policy, you had better check even "sealed" cartons. They may actually be RE-sealed.

    Floor demos have been played by hundreds of Wayne's World wanna-be's. No thanks.

    I may do next year. I love my Hot Rod Deluxe though. The 65 just sounds so immense.
