I have this amp I'm considering putting up for sale on here:  Fender Blues Junior( Fender special run) in Paisley Black...

- same spec as an everyday Blues Junior but finished in a Shiny, shiny gloss finish with a Paisley design - Its MINT condition and around 4 months old -  bought this amp NEW.

I cannot find another at the major dealers ( seem to be a little scarce) - so looking for guidance on prices please?

    I love the black, and the pink, paisley finishes. Best one I've seen on one of these is actually called tequila sunrise. Shame Fender don't do more artistic creations. Great sounding amps can look good too.

    I watched one of these on  gumtree up in Suffolk about 6 months back that was £450 and hung around for ages and the guy started dropping the price but must have sold but I don't know for what. I'd agree with @jonnyburgo £350 should move it whereas if you wanted nearer the £450 you'd have to wait perhaps a fair while until someone came along that has been looking for one. Plenty of normal spec BJs about

    No idea about the value but I've played through this - it's the fattest sounding blues Jr I've ever played through and I'm guessing that's down to the Paisley finish :-) (which is lovely btw)

    Thank guy's- I'll not be selling at £350- this thing is rare so I'll probably just keep it :)

    It's does have a certain fatness to it- I've decide to keep it :)

    Just the fact that it's a Blues Junior which sounds *good* is reason enough to keep it :).

    ;)

    And yes, it really is true that the cabinet finish can change the sound of an amp - in a guitar amp the cabinet resonates and contributes a fair amount to the tone, unlike in a hi-fi or PA cab.

    To be fair, I've noticed that the MkIII does sound better than the previous versions anyway - which oddly is the opposite with the Hotrods. The black control panel actually suits this finish too, whereas for some reason it looks cheap on the normal tolex version.

    My nearest Fender dealership had one of the FSR pine "Woody" Blues Junior amps. Definitely sounded better than the regular black Tolex examples. I still didn't like it enough to buy it though.

    I tried an FSR BJ3 in A Strings a year or two ago and it sounded excellent with a Les Paul Jr. 
    I'm well known for hating the Blues Jr but this sounded fine. There were no circuit differences, just a speaker change apparently - I wish I'd glanced round the back to see what it was.

    It's a supply and demand thing. It's a bit Marmite but it's the sort of amp that if someone wants one and they see it, you'll get a decent price on - couldn't personally see it fetching more than £400 though, to be honest.
    Think the consensus is, if it's a good one, keep it.

  • I sold a FSR last year for £430 I think. Was wine red with a cannabis Rex speaker. Sounded a lot better than the standard eminence speaker, but I don’t miss it one bit.

    Interesting to hear about the difference in tone with Blues Juniors - I tried one out in a shop about 4 years ago - was not impressed and bought the Blues Delux instead, but my son bought a Blues Junior recently (a Mk III) and it sounds great so they must have upgraded something!

    I had one and I loved it. Great little thing. 

    Things were simpler then.
