The skx100r is quite a rare beast from all accounts.Certainly in the UK where i come from i have only heard of one other ,and that was on a national fender forum(now defunct).So yes....seemingly rare.They date from around about 1990 and unusualy made in Taiwan but are actualy quite sturdy and well built.Nobody seems to have any knowledge as to the existance of Fender factories in Taiwan either....strange.I have used mine for about 3 1/2 years now and it has never let me down.It also has a very unique dual over-drive that can crunch effects up really nicely....although at the same time can be very aggressive.
Sounds like you got a real bargain there!!!!

Fender SKX100R

Stumbled across your post whilst looking for info on this amp. I just purchased one of these to use for an Alesis electronic drum kit we have. I only paid $75.00 usd and it seems like a great buy. It seems to have nice features and reverb.It is in great condition . I was wondering if anyone knew if this amp originally came with a footswitch. It has the plug-in for the footswitch on the face plate but, I purchased it from a subsequent owner and he had no idea.

I got my amp about 4 years ago for £90.00.Its never been gigged and is in brand new condition. They are as lod as you could want and as soft as you want. Great for Blues, rock or jazz..
I'll be selling mine as i'm getting a twin reverb.I jsut love the sound.However you can get the same sould using a Bodd FDR 1 stomp box

Hello; Its nearly five years since this topic was posted. Now I have an interest in the Fender SK-X 100r. If anyone is still around and cares, I also found one in a pawn shop located in Anchorage, Alaska. I paid 320.00.
