Recently bought the Red Sparkle Limited Run Blues Junior III and I gotta say it is simply stunning in all respects. The sparkle finish has to be seen to appreciate the depth and quality of the finish, just incredible. It also happens to sound fantastic as well, being fitted with a Celestion Greenback. I use a Xotic BB OD pedal to add a little hair to the sound and the amp responds incredibly well. I have owned many boutique combo over the years but this beats them all and at a good price as well. This Ltd version still has the chrome top plate and reverse lettering but as I use for studio use and not live it's not a problem. Doesn't come with cover or footswitch, come on Fender that is really tight!
The only thing I would say is that I live in the UK and the voltage here is 240 volts, but the amp is set at 230V. This can cause the power valves to overheat on idle. It's a simple fix you just take the back off and switch two wire around - no soldering they are spade connectors.
You really gotta track one of these bad boys down and check out that sparkle finish—it is awesome. I don't work for Fender by the way.
