Vtg FENDER Deluxe Reverb Guitar Tube Amp Original 1977

We got this from the estate of a longtime professional guitarist and local legend who toured with the likes of Haggard, Milsap, etc. Hes now retired and decided to sell some of his collection. Hes a bit of a tinkerer and modified the amp a bit- replacing the original speaker with a Mesa. The outlet cord and tubes appear to also be replaced. At some point he also removed the volume/boost clicker- so not sure if its in the regular or boost mode. Regardless, the tone is superb, earthy, and growls nicely at about 8 or 9. Theres also used a dab of paint as a marker on the volume knob. He said its a 1977 model but may be older. He also served in the Marine Corps in Vietnam and proudly added a patch on the bottom and a sticker on the side. Other issues are it could use a bit of a clean and the metal grill has some age spots. Also note its been banged in a few places. Foot switch for the vibrato also missing. Any questions or comments please ask! Reasonable BIN offers accepted.

The tube chart is intact and both the original power and output transformers have 1982 date codes, along with the CTS pots. This Super Champ is extremely clean, original and sounds great!

1959 Fender Harvard Narrow Panel Tweed 5F10 Vintage Pre-CBS Tube Amp Jensen P10R

Up for sale, a 1959 Fender Harvard in excellent condition and in perfect working order. The Harvard is a unique model, sitting just below the Deluxe in terms of output with two 6V6 power tubes, a substantially sized cabinet, and a single Jensen P10R alnico 10 speaker. The Harvard also has the distinction of being the only Tweed era Fender model name to not make the transition to subsequent Brown and Blackface amp series. Essentially a Vibrolux without the vibrato, the Harvard delivers on the promise of sweet tube saturation, and the extremely dynamic, harmonic rich tones which are a hallmark of the narrow panel tweed Fender amps. Outfitted with simple Volume and Tone controls, it’s easy to dial in everything from glassy cleans to tube overdrive with the twist of a knob. The cabinet size (noticeably bigger than the Champ and Princeton) adds a certain low end fullness to the tone as well, with great bloom to the notes and a richness that’s particularly evident when played with a humbucker-equipped guitar. The 5F10 circuit is extremely clean and well maintained, with new electrolytic caps sleeved in the original Minimite wrappers. The circuit is otherwise untouched, retaining the famed yellow Astron tone caps in the preamp, and stock CTS pots, carbon comp resistors, and cloth wiring as well. The original transformers are intact with a Triad power transformer and Schumacher output tranny. The faceplate is extremely clean, with shiny chrome and all of the original white silkscreened lettering intact (which was truly hard to capture in a photo, given the reflection from the chrome). The original Jensen P10R speaker is clean and intact, with a minty teal frame and stock foil label. The tube chart is present and quite clean as well, denoting the 5F10 circuit and also still featuring a cleanly stamped “IB” date code, which translates to February of 1959. Other impactful date codes include the CTS pots which date to the 6th week of’59 and the stamp on the edge of the speaker frame which dates back to the 49th week of 1958. The original lacquered tweed is intact and lightly ambered. A well kept example, this amp shows only a few moderate scuffs and minor wear on the corners and along the edges of the tweed pattern. The leather handle is original, and of particular note, the badge on the face of the amp is also original and reads “Fender Deluxe, ” having been mislabeled at the Fender factory. The Harvard is commonly referenced as the “Steve Cropper amp, ” having been used extensively by that artist to capture the tones heard with Booker T and the MGs on tracks like Green Onions, and on other notable hits like Otis Redding’s Dock of the Bay. It’s amazing the fullness and character that can come out of this small, 6V6 driven 1×10 Fender Harvard! Check out our shop “Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, ” and please let us know if we can answer any questions! We use double thick boxes, 1″ foam, and industrial 1/2″ bubble wrap to ensure that your amp arrives safely.

1967 Fender Deluxe Reverb Blackface Vintage Tube Amp 1x12 AB763 Circuit with ftsw

Up for sale, a 1967 Fender Deluxe Reverb in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Widely considered to be one of the greatest tube amps of all time, this Deluxe Reverb features a 100% original circuit. Stocked with fresh 6V6 power tubes and an assortment of new and vintage preamp tubes, this Deluxe delivers the shimmering, balanced clean tone that has made these amps a mainstay in studios and on stages for decades. The amp has a clear and dynamic sound, delivering sparkling cleans that are a great effects pedal platform. The amp starts to saturate with smooth tube overdrive after about 5 on the volume dial, cascading into rich, lightly compressed crunch as you push the volume to 10. The Reverb is very lush with a long decay, and the tremolo has a strong pulse with an almost three-dimensional quality to the effect when you increase the intensity. The circuit is 100% original and untouched, right down to the original filter caps and two-prong power cable. The preamp is loaded with the full compliment of the original blue Ajax molded capacitors, and all of the original Schumacher transformers are present, with date codes spanning late 1966 and early’67. The CTS pots date back to the 32nd week of’66 and the tube chart is intact with an “QH” date code which translates to August of 1967. The Oxford 12L6 speaker is a vintage-spec replacement which dates to 1965 with the original blue foil Fender label on the magnet and a fresh recone. Cosmetically, the amp is very original overall, with stock smooth black tolex and new aged silver sparkle grillcloth on the original baffle. The tolex is remarkably clean and all of the original hardware is present including the chassis straps, handle caps, sphinx glides (feet), corners, and raised Fender logo on the baffle. The original faceplate also shows sparingly little wear with bold graphics and stock witch hat knobs. This is a very original and well kept example of one of Fender’s most famous Blackface amps, complete with the original two-button footswitch.

1964 Fender Super Reverb Blackface Vintage Tube Amp Pre-CBS AB763 Jensen C10R

Up for sale, a 1964 Fender Super Reverb in excellent condition and in good working order. This Pre-CBS amp has been incredibly well cared for over the past nearly 50+ years, and comes from the first year of production. However, what truly makes this Super a rarity and a tonally exquisite example is the quad of original Jensen C10R speakers, arguably the rarest speaker quad used in this amp during the Blackface era. As a result, the tone has a hi-fi clarity, punch, and detail rarely afforded a Super Reverb and to round things out the amp is fitted with a complete vintage (and likely original) tube set including a matched pair of Fender-branded RCA 6L6GCs. Perfect for gigging situations and an ideal recording amplifier, the amp provides you with plenty of pristine Fender cleans until you hit the 4-5 range on the volume dial, where a bit of tube and speaker breakup send the amp into smooth overdrive. The reverb is lush and deep, and the tremolo has a nice pulse, with everything from swampy and slow to machine gun fast tremolo. The circuit is untouched save for a new three-prong power cable and even the original compliment of filter caps are still working as intended. All of the original coveted blue molded Ajax tone caps are intact too, and an integral part of the sweetness and detail of the Blackface sound. All of the original Schumacher transformers feature date codes from early’64, and the original CTS pots also date to 1964. The chassis itself is very clean as is the original blackface faceplate, which has been fitted with a new compliment of witch hat knobs. The tubes consist of a matched pair of “Made for Fender by RCA” 6L6GC power tubes along with a compliment of General Electric and RCA preamp tubes. In terms of the speakers, this Jensen quad is completely original, with matching late 1964 codes and the original harness. The speaker cones are all original, and the amp has a very strong, clear tone, as these cones have seen limited use over the decades and still reproduce focused lows and chiming highs. All four speakers retain clean square Jensen labels on the ceramic magnets, and the black frames show sparingly little wear. The original smooth black tolex is clean and original with little wear, while the original baffle features new aged silver sparkle grillcloth. The lower back panel is original and the upper panel is a modern replacement. The original nickel corners, sphinx glides (feet), chassis straps, chrome tilt-back legs, and raised “Fender” logo are present, and all hardware is in excellent shape. This Blackface Super Reverb is particularly clean, well maintained, and ready for stage and studio use! The original two-button Reverb/Tremolo footswitch is included.

1959 Fender Tremolux Tweed Vintage Pre-CBS Tube Amplifier 1x12 6V6 Jensen C12Q

Up for sale, a 1959 Fender Tremolux amplifier, freshly serviced and retaining the original lacquered tweed. One of the most tonally distinctive and sweet sounding amps of Fender’s late 1950s “narrow panel” Tweed era, the Tremolux essentially combined the tonal richness and dynamic, touch sensitive circuit of a 5E3 Deluxe with a bias-based footswitchable tremolo. Powered by a pair of brand new Electro Harmonix 6V6 power tubes, this Tremolux has the same harmonic content, smooth tube breakup and glassy tone of a Deluxe, but the significantly larger open back cabinet on a Tremolux gives the tone more depth, low end and roundness overall! Like any four-input Tweed Fender, the magic really happens when you jumper the two channels and use the independent Volume controls to dial in the perfect amount of clarity and grit. With the addition of Fender’s earliest tremolo circuit (a bias based design that essentially turns on/off the power tubes to create the effect), the Tremolux is a versatile and impressive amp, delivering a trem circuit with a strong pulse and good range of speeds. This true road warrior has been given all the love a real golden era Fender amp deserves, and our techs here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar have carefully gone through the circuit, balancing originality and functionality and using only the best parts available. All of the original yellow Astron tone caps are intact in the preamp, along with the original pots, carbon comp resistors, cloth wire, and mostly untouched solder joints. The main filter caps have been replaced with brand new Sprague Atoms so that the amp is working within original factory spec, and a three-prong power cable has been installed. A miniature bias pot has also been added to the eyelet board so that the tubes can be optimally biased (an option not available via the circuit’s traditional cathode bias method). The transformers are a brand new pair furnished by Mercury Magnetics and made in the USA, closely matching original specs and materials. These are the same transformers used in Fender’s top-tier Custom Shop builds, living up to the high bar set by Fender’s original transformer manufacturers in the era, Triad and Schumacher. The chassis itself is quite clean, and the chrome shows only very light pitting on the face with the majority of the white silkscreen lettering intact (the chrome in fact is so shiny that it was difficult to faithfully capture the lettering in the images, but rest assured it’s there). The original chicken head knobs are all present as well. The speaker is a vintage Jensen C12Q, rated at roughly 35 watts and the perfect match for the output of the Tremolux which is decidedly more modest than what the speaker can handle. The teal frame is quite clean, with a date stamp from’63, intact bell cover and original Jensen label. The tube chart is also present on the inside of the cabinet. The original “Tremolux” metal badge on the face of the amp is present, while the leather handle and sphinx glides (feet) are modern replacements. The original tweed is intact and as the photos show, it has been ambered and scuffed from decades of honest use. The most prominent wear on the pine cab is on the front bottom edge with a few bald spots. While the lower back panel is original, the upper back panel is a modern replacement, aged to closer match the wear on the tweed. The baffle is also a brand new solid pine replacement from MojoTone, fitted with new Oxblood grillcloth with gold stripe as per spec for the Tweed era. This Tremolux has been freshly serviced and is ready for stage and studio use! Check out our shop “Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, ” and please let us know if we can answer any questions! We use double thick boxes, 1″ foam and industrial 1/2″ bubble wrap to assure that your amp arrives safely. International orders will be declared as merchandise, and the value of merchandise will be declared as the amount paid. We cannot declare anything as a gift or for a lesser value.

1965 Fender Bassman Blackface Piggyback Vintage Tube Amp AA165 FEIC, Jensen C12N

Up for sale, a 1965 Fender Bassman head and matching 2×12 cab loaded with stock Jensen C12N speakers and complete with fresh Tung Sol power tubes and original RCA preamp tubes. 100% original aside from a new bias cap and three-prong power cable, this vintage Blackface Fender amp is a true AA165 circuit Bassman with a Pre-CBS “Fender Electric Instruments” faceplate and date codes between late 1964 and early’65. For clarity, warmth, and headroom, this Bassman excels at delivering sweet and articulate Fender clean tones. Once you reach about 5 on the volume dial, the circuit starts to overdrive smoothly and compress a bit, for a raw, thick sound that’s perfect for guitar or bass. It’s a simple and pure vintage Fender “piggyback” head and cab setup that provides a perfect platform for effect pedals, and is ready for stage and studio use. Arguably the circuit available for the briefest period of time in the Blackface era, the AA165 circuit designation is seen on many tube charts (Leo Fender was never one to waste anything), but under the hood, the actual AA165 circuit was only seen for a few months in early’65 before transitioning to the AB165 that would be seen through 1968. On this particular amp the tube chart still refers to the earlier AA864 circuit, but the chassis layout conforms to AA165 specs. The circuit retains all of the original transformers with a power transformer dating to the 46th week of 1964 and a power transformer that dates to the second week of’65. All of the original blue molded Ajax caps are present in the preamp and the amp even retains all of the stock filter caps which are working as intended with no leakage. On the inside of the head cabinet, the original tube chart is present with a “OB” date stamp which translates to February of 1965. The amp is fitted with a modern three-prong cable. The tubes consist of a pair of brand new and properly biased Tung Sol 5881 (6L6GC) power tubes, along with a trio of RCA 12AX7s and a General Electric 12AT7 phase inverter tube. The speaker cab is loaded with a pair of original Jensen C12N speakers, and these 12 drivers are arguably the most desirable speakers for the Blackface Bassman. These speakers are detailed, clear, and well balanced, overdriving with very rich and balanced overtones. The frames are very clean, the original gold Jensen/Fender labels are present, and both speakers have their original cones. Cosmetically, this is a clean and well cared for Bassman with original smooth black tolex on the head and speaker cabinet. The grillcloth on the cabinet is original as well, while the head has genuine vintage cloth with aging consistent to the cab. There are only a few requisite scuffs and nicks on the edges of the enclosures, as well as one small bald spot on the cab just north of the front left corner. All of the original hardware is present, including the tilt-back chrome legs, nickel corners, handles, sphinx glides (feet), and Fender logos. The faceplate is also quite clean and complete with original witch hat knobs. There’s a bit of light patina on the hardware as well as faint aging of the grillcloth on the cab in particular, but that’s about the extent of any wear! This Bassman is clean, complete, and works exactly as intended for delivering powerful Fender cleans and thick overdriven textures.
