Thanks, Chuck. I pulled up the Fender site and it looks like the big difference is in the number of presets and the II doesn't have the stereo output jacks. There is only 12 pounds difference in the weight, so I may go for the III.

Question about this amp: Does using the stereo out jack cut the speaker sound? All the amps I've seen with a headphone jack do this when headphones are plugged in, so unless the stereo line out is separate from the headphone jack I would guess this amp behaves that same way. In other words, can you record your playing through this amp via the stereo line out and at the same time also hear what you are playing through the speaker?

Art,
I haven't had the opportunity to try the xlr line outs, but I think I found the answer to your question:

According to these guys, the speaker is not muted when using the xlr outs.

The headphone jack does mute the speaker when you plug headphones in.
