Um, wow? I mean, that's not very PC. I wonder what the fourth one is.

That's a Fender Champion 40 amp (above), so the last setting would be Metal.

Their more expensive models have up to 16 settings. Here's a Champion 40 demo:

Yeah, I know nothing about guitars and amps. I'm sure those settings on the top one have different meanings in music than they do in other places.

Brownface, Blackface and Silverface all refer to different periods of Fender amp design, which are supposed to sound different but were signified by the colour of the control face plate.

So a second hand one would be scarface ?
(and would probably fail a drugs wipe test too :)))

[EDIT]

I also have to ask, what would "British" signify .. pasty white complexion with nicotine teeth ?

"British" is probably supposed to mean Orange with a touch of Vox, although "Orange" is quite popular with certain circles in the USA...

The earliest Marshall amps were actually British attempts to copy the Tweed era Fenders.

The 'British' setting makes a Fender sound like an old Marshall... like a Plexi  ;)

Yup. And, 'Plexi' describes an era of Marshall amps that had plexiglass face plates.
