    Could someone please tell me if the difference between Fender Pro Junior
    Blonde and the same model with black Silver Cloth is purely cosmetic or they
    use slightly different parts (different speaker, rectifier, etc)? I noticed
    that that they are priced differently- the black model costing about $50
    more.



    Thanks.

    The pricing seems a bit odd though when you consider the standard
    colour for a Fender amp is black. You think the marketing
    spin-doctors would hawk the thing as a *special* or *limited* edition
    and price it higher. I know the Blues Junior was availabel in a solid
    hardwood cab all nicely fingerjointed, stained in a warm tone and then
    lacquered. It was to die for in the looks department but near double
    the price of the standard black vinyl. From a test drive I couldn't
    hear where they were getting an extra 100% of the sound.

    BTW, I'm not knocking the amp in anyway shape or form. I would quite
    happily be proud to own either the Pro Junior or the Blues Junior. I
    actually came very close to owning the latter but ended up with the
    F-30 instead. It had some bells and whistle I knew I'd never reach my
    full potential without. My wife tells me it's just G*A*S.

    Blonde PJ's are selling poorly for Musician's Friend and they have
    too many left in stock, so - fifty bucks less than black. Same exact
    amp.

    Sounds like a helluva deal to me, I wish mine was blonde.
    Not that it makes a difference, but it would be the baby
    brother to my Tonemaster.
