    I have a Fender Sidekick 35 I bought new in '86. The knobs (that are left) are not original on that one. I believe just about everything Fender from this time period was MIJ.

    The 35 was the first amp I owned, so of course it was abused, but has held up well. I think my cone has a crease in it, it breaks up at high volume but still sounds solid at low-med volume. It was never a great sounding amp, but it's not bad at all. Still use mine, I keep it at a buddy's house. Also has a 15" driver. The cab on mine is smaller, so this one probably has a better low end response. It'll be good for practice, you might get away with playing with a hand percussionist or perhaps even a light-handed drummer. I doubt it has much collectable value.

    The amp doesn't seem that impressive or uniqe really. I get a feeling that it's similar to the other Fender bass combos I've experineced through the years.
