Fender G-DEC Amplifier

Fender G-DEC Amplifier

I tried out the new Fender G-DEC Amplifier lately, and I have to say I was impressed with; a) the sound of the amp itself, b) the built in "band" c) the doggone coolness of this thing! Fender has really filled a niche with this amp. The acronym G-DEC stands for the Guitar Digital Entertainment Center, and this compact amp definitely lives up to the handle. The amp has built in drum loops, bass lines, and other padding instrumentation - all courtesy of an onboard fully functional MIDI synthesizer. What this all creates is a great, fun soundscape for you to practice your Slipknot/Hendrix/Urban licks (i'm not really kidding; the amp has 50 Fender designed presets, and it covers a lot of soundground), and it makes running that lydian scale you've been meaning to practice almost enjoyable. This is the guitar amplifier equivalant of a 40 inch, surround sound in the living room; it's just a heck of a lot louder, and way more fun.
