Purchased on 2012-06-14. On 2014-07-14 the g-dec junior amp has died. Love the Affinity HSS Strat, and have loved the g-dec junior amp up to this point. Sadly in the UK there is only a 2-year warranty on Fender stuff.
Turn amp on and it plays for about 30 secs then cuts out. if you carry on strumming it will cut in and out a couple of times then nothing. Try changing to a different amp setting and the red light blinks on and off for w while then shows solid again. turn off the amp for an hour or so and you get a repeat of the above.
No problem with the usability or features, just the fact that it has not lasted.
If it had lasted it would earn 5 stars....

I can never let go of this set. On practice or in a small crowd it does the job.

I absolutely love this guitar! It was my first guitar, and I've played it so much since then I can't even tell you! The amp is okay, but if you're any higher than a beginner, get a better amp (I prefer the Mustangs). The G-DEC busted out on me, and I replaced it with a Mustang Mini. But the guitar, you can get a classic fender honky clean out of the middle, smooth solos from the neck, and awesome punk rock out of the 'bucker. I got to try a few different guitars while I've played, and this one's just more comfortable than the custom shop ones I got to mess with. Once you play it for a while the neck gets smooth with your finger oil (it's natural for it to do it) and it's just become a part of me. I love it! I've gigged with this guitar, and it hasn't let me down!

I picked up the GDEC-Junior used on Craigslist to use with my Affinity Telecaster. This is a great little practice amp. It has several amp models and a few effects such as reverb or tremelo. It also has some built in backing beats with temp adjust as well as an input jack so you can play along to music on a cd-player, computer or iPod.
