I'm retired from all forms of work, including playing in bands.If you don't think playing music is work, God bless you. So here is the verdict on the Custom Fender Reverb. It is the best amp I've ever owned. No noise, dead quite. No reverb noise.Let's see what were some of the other complaints? Oh yeah, no popping when you cut the amp off. , Plenty of bass on both channels. Tone is wonderful. Now my Nashville tele and my es339 have come alive. It's just a bad to the bone amp. I"ve been fooling around with music most of my life and owned too many amps. Buy this one and take care of it and you should be happy for a long time.
