    400Watts? Mode4 anyone? Thumbs down.

    Nice box they put it in, but the hardware inside it doesn't have me interested at all..

    I remember a member called Diabolque 5150 having one, and whilst at the start he thought it was super awesome, the more he used it, the more he realised it was super lame.

    I have not seen the dude on here for ages. Maby it's because of me?

    if you ever played an old M80 amp (SS fender) it's basically one of those REALLY loud

    nice sparkley clean, loses in every other dept. tho

    the new supersonic is a sweet amp

    I've been impressed with the stuff Fender has put out over the past few years with bass amps. Older guitar amps, pretty cool. Newer guitar amps, lame. For practice we have the G-DEC in all the teaching rooms for guitars. Pretty cool affordable toy.

    500W or 400W is really unnecessary...well f we were giants maybe it could be usefull, so we could hit the amp harder.... but if that's all there is to it then it sucks ass
    50W heads rule

    50W tube head rules...
    Line6 (vetta is 300 watt) and fender made those so fucking loud cause ss amps can't compete with the loudness of tube heads.
    A solid state 50 watt is not the same thing as a tube 50 watt, tube will be louder.

    yep, infact generally a 100w solid state head is louder than a 25-30w tube head.....

    I tried one a year or two ago. It was wretched.
    VERY loud, but volume does not equal tone. It seems to me that they crammed 400+ watts in it just so they had something that would seem impressive to metalheads. I don't think they get it.....

    Agreed... that whole 500 watts seems like a bullshit gimmick... i was hoping it would have a great tone, but the lack of people using it has to be there for some reason.. :)

    I love how it avoids mentioning any other substantial features
