    Hey, I just happened to buy the very last one of the limited edition Blues Jr.'s in the cream colour with a Jensen C12 special design speaker. I am stoked to say the least!!!! Yes, I know, the cream colour may not be for everyone --- I was not sure at first but you know, it kinda grows on you after awhile. But the minute I plugged it in, I knew then and there that was exactly the sound I was looking for!!! So, without further adieu, here are some pics I just took. Time to go play with my new baby!! :):):)

    Happy amp day, that is sharp. Never saw it before but reminds me I need a junior back in my collection.

    Thanks everyone!! Man, I am so impressed with this amp, it has greatly exceeded my expectations. My only regret was not buying it sooner!!!! I am in LOVE!!! So much so, here are a couple more pics with my Tele hogging the camera!! I think the colour is more true in these pics vs. the ones above. IMG_0452.jpg

    Beautiful amp.
    For the record, it’s “blonde”... and I’m a huge fan of the look. I’m a sucker for the blonde/oxblood, but the blonde/wheat like yours has its own sexiness:

    Sweet amp, congratulations! Have you compared this besides a stock BJr? Curious to know what are the tonal differences and impact on sound where the Jensen in concerned.

    Great looking Fender amps!! The salesman at the store where I bought it referred the colour as "cream" but you are so right, it is blond. I was able to search their archives and found the original listing of this limited edition and it was listed as blond. Thanks for the info and we all know "blonds have more fun"!!!!!

    Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to do a side by side comparison between the stock BJ and this one with the Jensen ---- the amp room was busy at the store. I have played Blues Juniors in the past, always loved their sound, but it would have been nice to A/B them with the same settings etc. I was just so happy with this amp, I couldn't wait to get it home and plug in so I didn't want to hang out at the store much longer. Besides, they have too many tempting toys and my credit card was going to take a beating!!!:(

    Great looking BJ! Congrats!
    Now, your Strat in the pic, is that Candy Cola Red? That's a beauty too.

    I think the cream, or blonde, looks much better than the regular ones.

    Sweet redhead!!! I love it!! And, if I'm not mistaken, they came with the Celestion Vintage 30 speaker as well.
