    The Mustang II and III are no longer listed on Fenders website. I wonder how long before this apparent follow up is released. If it's an improvement on the already great Mustang line and priced right it could be really exciting news.

    The Mustang Series is the best selling amp of all time. You bet there will be a tube amp killer package right behind it.

    Well, in my mind tube amps have already been killed but that's another subject

    Don't really like the look of it, but hopefully it will be in major step forward sound-wise.

    It does look small. It looks like it has a LCD screen similar to the Mustang III.
    I wonder if it's the smallest of the line similar to the Mustang I.

    Dammit. I just bought an Amplifire because I wanted a portable rig and now this :laugh2:

    Oh well, I guess I'll suffer with the Amplifire. :naughty:

    Just hope they are bringing out an update to the Fuse software at the same time or at least have something with a bit more up-to-date functionality.

    I think it looks similar in shape to their acoustic amps.

    After Code, I refuse to get excited until a year after it's out.

    I'm quite excited about this. I really love my old version 1 Mustang III (I have none of the hiss, etc. problems that many people had with these.) Only problem is, I was about to pull the trigger on something new, but now I think I will wait.

    I would love to see them do a higher end version (more rugged cab, better switches and jacks). I was interested for a while in the Roland Blues Cube Artist for that very reason, as I am a Fender-tone guy, but maybe Fender does Fender best.

    A year ago I would have been all over this. After thinking more about why this doesn't excite me, part of it may be the regret of allowing the Code hype to get into my head before it came out, but I think my real problem is Frank. :laugh2::laugh2:

    I seem to be centered in on Helix now and evidently can't be deterred.

    Helix. Do It!
    You won't regret a thing.
    I bought one late last year. It is the most incredible piece of audio gear I have ever bought.
    Helix sounds amazing with everything I connect to it: Guitars, Fender Mustang IV v.2, Fender Mustang III v.2, Yamaha DXR10 FRFR Monitors, JBL LSR 308 Studio Monitors, Shure SE530 IEMs, Sony MDR-V6 Headphones, Yamaha THR10C.
    If you buy when one of the vendors is running a sale and Line 6 is running a free premium accessory promotion you can wind up with a screaming deal!

    Looking at the 1/4" input jack, the amp does look small. The jack is about the same size as the knobs.
