    I disagree. You can easily fit 2 potted plants and a lamp on top if you lack furniture.

    You are talking to guitar players here... while we are an intelligent lot logic does sometimes go straight out the window.

    I'll echo what someone else said here...I have a 12 watt Princeton Reverb and a 15 watt Pro Junior. Both are complete overkill for my condo. I've only had it up to 3. Getting a 40 watt amp that you'll have to use an attenuator with is just dumb, unless you need it to play in a band or something. If you don't, I'd be looking in the opposite direction--like a vintage Vibro Champ or a 7 watt Bassbreaker. Remember, a lot of those classic albums were recorded with a Fender Champ. Ask Jimmy Page or Joe Walsh about them.

    I think it's one of the best amps in its class for clean Fender tones. It was an expensive purchase for me but I would buy another one in a heartbeat if anything ever happened to it. Go back to Guitar Center and play through one. I think you'll love it.

    It would certainly be an expensive purchase for me as well but I would definitely consider looking into it. It would take me some time to afford it but since I just got back to work after being so sick slowly but surely it might be in my future.

    Wow that thing is bananas!! Holy mother of guitar gods it's so small but so powerful. Love his channel and he does good reviews comparisons etc definitely like the Princeton custom 65 reverb but that price is really high but this little thing yeah this might be an option. Definitely not as harsh on the top end in comparison to what I have now.

    Well I did NOT expect a $1000 dollar price tag on such a little amplifier but with some hardwork and saving I think this or the 65 Princeton Deluxe Reverb in my future. I'd like to know the justification for the price of the 57 Custom Champ though.. holy smokes. No features but that price? Yikes.

    It's hand wired and maybe others can explain it better than me it's pretty accurate to the original circuit. A lot of early Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton (Layla) and Rolling Stones guitars to name but a few were recorded with the 57 because of the killer tone. For those who like that amp and it's tone finding a clean original will cost you a lot more so yea, I think it's worth a grand. But that's just me.

    The way I see it I've got some saving up to do before anything but thanks for the input on some smaller options. I'll start saving up at least $1000 and go from there.
