Overall: Wow have just begun to play this bad boy. Was shipped on time! Packaged great! Unpacked and found myself some 4 hours later playing with the amps sounds very, very impressed and happy. The only thing I could possibly say negative would be the way the casters plug into the bottom of the cabinet. They need a retainer ring, so when you push the caster in they stay into the cabinet. I had 2 that we're a little loose, moved them around in positions with the others until finding somewhat of a snug fit. They will only loosen with time thou. Not a big deal, maybe for next design Eddie have casters with retainers and bigger wheels like 3". Also adding a mp3 port would be pure esctacy! Thx zZsounds for making the deal go through fast & safe shipping using gr8 shippers "Fedex" Love this amp Eddie!! Cya on stage!! Cheers

Overall: I must say this amp is probably the best combo I've played through in a long time. I got the ivory combo which looks absolutely awesome. Quality on this amp is solid, very we'll built. Dialing in any tone is easy. Tones anywhere from clean, blues, rock, and metal. Probably my favorite feature is the capability of using 1watt to 50 watts, perfect for bedroom volumes and you do not lose any tone whatsoever. This is a fairly big combo. Comes with castors and recessed side handles which is a plus. Also at 50 watts this amp is LOUD!!! Once again, amp is a little on the pricy side but with zZounds installment payments plans it's a no brainer!!

Overall: been looking for an amp that could do a lot of different tones and take effects well. I play mainly les paul guitars with active and passive pick ups and the tone blows me away!! easy to set up and the power scaling is awsum!!!! for me this is the amp ive been looking for for 20+ years.. ive always played and own a couple awsum marshalls and the 5150iii stands up to them with ease and a little more in some areas!!! has lots of punch and CLARITY!!!! very pleased with this amp, and would highly recommend at least playing one!!! zzounds of course was awsum and shipping was fast!! look forward to using them again..not sure about fender customer support because mainly this is the first fender based product ive ever purchased so ive never had to contact them..

Overall: I was really torn between buying a Marshall JVM combo and the EVH combo. I already have a JCM 800 head and 4x12 cabinet. I bought the EVH combo and man am I glad I did. It sounds great! It kills the Marshall in every way. From the clean channel to both overdrive channels it is amazing. I also bought the EVH 2x12 cabinet so I have an EVH half stack. It just sizzles. The power attenuation is great too from 1 watt to 50 watts the amp just shines. Thanks Zzounds.
