The creators of the Fender Super Sonic 22 started with the Burn Channel. This has controls for two sides of the sound. The first side is where the distortion lives. Turn channel one all the way up and you will feel the power, the exciting part of this power is that the guitarist has control of this crunch simply by how they attack the music. For instance if you want over the top then attack the strings, if you are having a quiet moment , a lighter pick will let you lighten the mood.
