That's pretty cool. Can't be cheap with contacts that are foolproof from magnet pressure and other features.

I'm keeping my eye on digital amp modeling. The early ones did not sound good to me, but recently I have heard some that sound a lot more like the tube amp they are supposed to be.

My son's Fender Cyber amp didn't sound bad (to me) for its digital modeling, but I don't have the greatest ear or a ton of reference tube amps to compare it to.

I haven't heard that. What I have liked recently are Yamaha's newish desktop amps. The clean channel does sound fairly like a traditional clean Fender tube amp which for some reason is hard to recreate (based on past versions from Line 6, et. al.)

Good tone vs. okay tone is subtle, but it's easiest to tell over a long listening session. Even slight harshness causes ear fatigue.

Modularity. Ease of access and simple. This may not be the direction other manufacturers go with but this is pretty cool.

Actually, Fender's original selling point was modularity. A Telecaster was pretty darn modular for the 1950s. Even now building your own Tele/Strat from parts is cake.
