:lol: Just mentioning the BJr brings out the most amazing BS.
Really, a 20 watt amp isn't much louder than a 15 watt amp. You can get more of a volume increase with a more efficient speaker than you can with 5 extra watts. If 15 watts isn't loud enough, then 20 watts isn't going to put you over the top. A 15 watt amp with an efficient speaker can actually be much louder than a 20 watt amp with a weak speaker.
And, there not only is no "cottage industry", but not one site that sells upgrades or mods for the BJr advertises to "make it something it's not", that is just plain nonsense. To say that the BJr "needs" to be modified to work right is just plain silly, to say the least. Amazing how many parrots like to squawk drivel about the BJr.
No one is claiming that the BJr can be made into a DR, or anything close to it, except those with a grind against the amp. Those who own the amps have a much better grip on reality and realize that the upgrades just make for a better BJr, and it will never be anything else.
+1 I find it interesting that people who knock BJr upgrades think it is ok to mod their guitars
