1 JimmyR 1 year ago I haven't actually seen one of these yet, but have read a bit - solid pine cab (vs ply on the DRRI), bias vary tremolo - not authentic but probably an improvement - and handwired with modern "Astron" caps, whatever they may be. I'm familiar with the original blue Astrons but know nothing of these repros. Both channels have reverb and trem, and the first channel doesn't have the bright cap - yay!My local store guys have told me about it - they were apparently impressed with what they saw at the trade shows. So I have been keen to hear one. To be honest I have never really seen what all the fuss is about with BF Fenders, especially the Deluxe Reverb. The cleans are decent but I don't really care for the breakup. Thousands apparently do, but not me. I like tweed, Badcat and Marshall kinda sounds.So the only clips I have heard so far are those posted at Premier guitar. https://www.premierguitar.c... John Bollywood generally can pull a tone and I like his style. I find I can usually get a good idea of what something should sound like from him. Well, if his demo of the Custom Deluxe Reverb is anything to go by I definitely don't want one!Am I hearing wrong?? It sounds thin and harsh to me - but then BF Fenders distorting usually do to me. Has anyone actually played one yet?
