As basic as it gets

Pros: 

It was free.

With single coils, it sounds quite nice at apartment friendly volumes. You can't expect miracles from an 8" cheapo speaker but the sound is agreeable.

Small, light, stylish if you're into TV front Fender amps.

Cons: 

Sounds like crap with humbuckers, even the underpowered misfits on my (former) Les Paul Traditional.

Very basic layout; not for knob-twiddlers.

It's a Fender, it only does clean. Yes it breaks up when pushed, but not in a very pleasant way.

Sound Quality: 
3
Reliability: 

I've had it two weeks and it still works.

Customer Support: 

No experience with Fender customer support.

Summary: 

I personally wouldn't spend 140 Euros on a basic and rootsy small amp like this.

As it was free, I find it fun to mess around with. It's for clean playing only as far as I'm concerned.
