I bought this yesterday and since I have explored most of its features. The interface is easy to use and understand and any possible queries can be resolved with a look at the instruction manual. I bought it to replace my old starter amp due to my purchase of the American special strat and it carries the sound well. It's a very versatile amplifier and is very loud! So I needn't worry about buying another if I went to gig. I would recommend this amp to anyone still exploring their sound due to its flexibility and not to emotion value for money.

I've played acoustic guitar for years. I just recently bought an electric guitar and the Mustang II amp. It's a good learning tool if you are not familiar with guitar effects. And with the right settings, it makes a great acoustic amp as well. The FUSE software is pretty cool, too. You can create and store your own effects. If you are playing onstage, you can have different effects for each song. A good tablet computer mounted on a mic stand might be handy for this. I would like to see a "playlist" feature in FUSE.

Bought this amp just on the off-chance one day in my local music store.For £120 you cannot go wrong!
The modulations are fantastic, you can get almost any sound you want out of it.
I would say the negative reviews coming out for this amp are just from people who don't spend the time tinkering with the software to get the most out of it.
I mainly rip around with the metal settings, zero reverb and a high grinding tone. However, it can also pick out a very clean tone with the classic mods.
I can't recommend this amp highly enough for the price.

Capable of an excellent clean sound, and from mild to wild with amps, cabinets and effects. You'll have to use the Fuse software to get satisfactory results. As others have stated, a mid knob would be good, as would a line out jack, and the ability to chain two effects from the same category.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with this amp, and have absolutely no buyer's remorse. Good value for the money.

I had an old Fender FM 25 DSP amp and something was wrong with it so I took it back to the music store where I got it and since it was still under warranty I was hoping to get the amp fixed. instead I got this amp, and after a week or two I was ready to just get rid of it. It's good if you like all the presets, but I use pedals and all I want is a clean channel and only one of the presets is somewhat clean but it still has a bit of reverb.
The fact that there's no middle control and 2 volume controls annoy me and it's hard to hone in a good sound. WOuld not consider buying, or recommend to any guitarist. I want my DSP back.

I jumped aboard the gravy train and went and bought this version back in February at my local Guitar Center. I will say one thing for this amp and that is, for a 40 watt combo, this is one very loud amp! Now as far as the tone settings are concerned, this amp could've benefitted from having a midrange control on it as far as I'm concerned. I did try the fuse software and to be honest, if you're not computer literate, which I'm really not, then this can be really confusing as far as programming the settings on it. I had a very hard time trying to figure out what was what as far which setting is the right one as far as my sound is concerned. Plus, I tried hooking up my Digitech RP-50 to it figuring I could just use the clean. Well, that made my pedal sound like crap. Now, this amp is just sitting in a corner collecting dust while I try to see if anybody is interested in buying it. I love solid state amps but, modeling amps are just not for me.

The cleans are great ,the gain and punch is flawless!
It is a budget Amp and yes ,you can gig with it!
The effects are genuine and its really easy to use!
USB connectivity and recording quality is really good.

The response to the pedals is great and i can get the SRV,Hendrix,Mayer and other sounds.
And also the onboard stompboxes are great,tweak them and you can get the tone you want,Mic it up and you're ready to hit the road!

the distorted sound is very bad. the clean sound is ok, but the 57 deluxe is good for 60s blues.

This is a superb amp for practicing and gives a good selection of tones and features for your money. Its compact size, and versatility makes it a great amp for practice, and whilst i know a tube amp may give a 'warmer, truer sound' in the view of many, i prefer the flexibility offered by these solid state amps.

I have been searching for awhile now to find a good amp to practice at home with. From all the internet information i found, the best setup would be a tube amp and several different effects pedals. I went to my local guitar center and tried a few amps and found that the tube amps sounded good but were very exspensive. So an employee suggested i try the Fender Mustang 2. I could not believe how good it sounded. It has 24 preset sound effects that can be changed by me or downloaded with the Fender Fuse software so i don"t need to buy any effects pedals. At $200.00 it's the perfect amp for home or to take to a small gig. Thank You Fender !

This amp is excellent! It sounds great from clean to dirty. This amp is good for you if you like experimenting different kinds of tones. Each amp models sounds great and sounds close to the actual amp it simulates! This amp is also good for recording because it has a USB interface which connects to your PC and record low latency and high-quality audio.

I purchased this amp in October 2012 after doing a fair bit of research. I needed a versatile modelling with good quality tone and authentic sounding models. After trialling it in store was more than happy to purchase. I am a teacher and play not only for myself but with school bands. This amp allows me to jump in with the various bands and get right to the sound I need without too much fiddling around or a variety of pedals. Love it.

I bought this amp 2 years ago after reading many reviews and demos. I was impressed by the sound produced by this little amp. It has the capability of reproducing the sounds of many different amps and doing it well. I don't have a lot of room and didn't want to invest in a lot of additional pedals and such. With the Fender Fuse software, I can get the tone I want without the additional hardware. Very impressed. A lot of value for a very affordable cost.

This amp comes with so many different amp settings and effects its unbelievable. Would recommend to a beginner all the way up to my level. Had a problem with the AUX cable and was soon sent another amp.
