It’s a little weak in the bass and the highs are a bit more muted than the other speakers.
When I toured the Fender factory in California in 2001, there was discussion about a possible limited edition Custom Shop replica of Number One.
The NOS Blues Junior is a current production, lacquered tweed amp with a Jensen reissue C12N speaker. There’s nothing limited about the edition; they built a bunch and when they ran out, they built another bunch.
Other Variants The Blues Junior chassis has also been used in the Two-Tone, a large amp with a 10-inch and a 12-inch speaker.
Blues Junior history can be divided into two major categories: the early amps with green circuit boards and the later ones with cream-colored boards.All 100 of the guitars were sold at the 2004 NAMM convention to Fender dealers.For the Clapton 335, my understanding is that orders were taken on a specific date from Fender dealers on a first-come first-served basis.It is certainly not unusual for artwork to sell for ,000, and that's one way to look at this guitar.The replicas of Clapton's Gibson 335 had an original price of ,000.The cream-colored board is laid out entirely differently (and better) than the green board. But the old ones sound darker, while the new ones are brighter, with more emphasis on treble tones.One is not necessarily better than the other; the dark tones are nice for blues and jazz, while the new amps do brighter tones better.(I do not make copies of the DVD for anyone, so please do not ask.)My initial impressions: excellent tone, love the fat neck, and it's lighter than I expected.It looks great, but there are some things about 25 years of wear that no one has accurately mimicked.The chassis can also be found in the weird, plastic-cased Deco-Tone and in some Custom Shop amps with exotic wood cases such as bubinga.Other cabinet coverings include blond Tolex, dark brown Tolex with a wheat-colored grille (custom for a Canadian music store chain), and the Texas Red Tolex.
