THE AMP THAT NEVER LEFT HOME. PERFECT GRILL CLOTH – NO SMOKE STAINS!! NON SMOKING HOUSE —– ALL ORIGINAL AMP—- TIME WARP. COMES WITH ORIGINAL 60′s COVER (Not Repro). I bought this amp about 10 years ago from its original owner. It was bought in 67 by a guy that was going to learn guitar. It seemed like a good idea at the time but he never put the time in and the amp sat for 40 years in a bedroom closet. When I got it home, I powered it up with a variac just in case but there were no problems and everything checked out fine. I left it exactly as I found it, no mods, no components were replaced. The first 5 pics were taken this week, the rest were from 10 years ago when I had it apart. Sadly, Ive done the same thing as the original owner. It has sat in my closet with the cover on and has had less than 2 hours of use in the last 10 years. I’m not a guitar player, I play keys and will never get the proper enjoyment out of this amp.. This is a classic guitar players dream!!! I’ve heard this amp at the hands of a pro guitar player. The vibrato feature really makes this amp! TECHNICAL INFO – Amp is in excellent working condition. From the little I have used it, I haven’t had any issues at all. The power cord is the original one! It is nice and flexible with no cracks and I see no reason to replace it at this time how many 50 Y/O + amps can you say that about? Control knobs feel brand new because they have had no use to speak of! Sorry, the amp did not come with the foot pedal control so there is no control I can offer you. The pedal is needed to switch from vibrato mode to non-vibrato as you know. TERMS OF SALE – I offer this amp to someone that will hopefully enjoy it and use it more than once a year. Although it is in good working order now, anything can happen to a 54 year old amp with original components.

1965 Fender Bassman Black Panel Piggyback Vintage Tube Amp Head & 2x12 Cab AA165

Up for sale, a 1965 Fender Bassman head and matching 2×12 cab in excellent condition and in perfect working order. This vintage Black Panel Fender amp is very original, and the grillcloth on the head and cabinet is among the nicest we’ve seen. 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 Black Panel 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 number of months in’65 before transitioning to the AB165 that would be seen through 1968. This amp is one of few to retain the original AA165 guts. The circuit retains all of the original transformers which date to early 1965 along with the CTS pots and chassis stamp. Both the preamp and power amp have been thoroughly maintained, with new Sprague Atom main filter caps and smaller Mallory caps in the preamp to ensure that the amp is operating within original factory spec. The amp features a modern three-prong power cable as well. On the inside of the head cabinet, the original tube chart is present with an “OG” date stamp which translates to July of 1965. The speaker cab is loaded with a pair of vintage Utah 12 speakers. These speakers are detailed, clear, and quite punchy, overdriving with very rich and balanced overtones. Tested against vintage pairs of Oxfords and Jensens, these Utahs were a surprise favorite, and the original black frames are quite clean, retaining the blue foil Fender labels on the magnets. Cosmetically, this is a clean and well cared for Bassman with original smooth black tolex and silver sparkle grillcloth. All of the original hardware is present, including the tilt-back chrome legs, nickel corners, handles, sphinx glides (feet), and raised Fender logos. The original faceplate is also quite clean and complete with original witch hat knobs. There’s a bit of patina on the hardware, and some expected scuffs and minor wear around the edges of the enclosures, but as the photos show, this Bassman presents very well and would look great in a studio collection. This Bassman is clean, complete, and works exactly as intended for delivering powerful Fender cleans and thick overdriven textures. 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. 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.

Up for sale, a 1980 Fender Princeton Reverb in excellent condition and in perfect working order. One of the very last genuine vintage examples from the original Silverface era of production, this Princeton Reverb has been freshly serviced by our techs here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar. The perfect amplifier for small club gigs and studio sessions, the Princeton’s circuit delivers both well-balanced, sparkling cleans and smooth, harmonic-rich overdrive when you dime it out. The Reverb is lush, and the Tremolo has a nice pulse with a wide range of speeds. The circuit retains the original pair of transformers manufactured for Fender by Schumacher, dating between late 1979 and the first weeks of’80. The preamp boasts a full complement of original blue molded capacitors, with a few new Sprague electrolytics to ensure optimal performance. The larger multi-section can cap in the power supply is still functioning as intended too. All of the original pots are intact, with visible date codes from the 50th week of’79. The tubes consist of a matched pair of JJ 6V6s with an JJ 5U4 rectifier and a bevy of modern valves in the preamp. The speaker is an era-correct Oxford 10J4 with a black frame and blue foil Fender label on the magnet. The speaker retains the original speaker harness as well, complete with the original speaker jack with Fender “F” cap. The tube chart is mostly intact. The original smooth black tolex and silver sparkle grillcloth with orange stripe are present and notably well-kept. The original faceplate has plenty of shine with a full complement of witch hat knobs, and the hardware includes original chassis straps, handle caps, sphinx glides (feet), and small raised Fender tail-less logo. This vintage Princeton Reverb works exactly as it should, sounds great, and is ready for another 40 years of use.

The circuit features a professional recap of the power supply, as well as a new bias capacitor and a couple new caps and resistors in the preamp to ensure everything is operating within original factory spec.

One of the best Fender mamps ever made I my and probably many other humble opinion. Clear and present cleans, and dial past 5 to start getting that natural Fender break-up. This amp is in mostly original form. Speaker and Reverb tank have been swapped. By looks, the speaker looks to be an Eminence, but I cannot tell for sure. It sounds good to my ears. The Verb tank is a monster MOD tank (see pic). It also appears a big capacitor has been replaced. I know of no others for sure. Original iron and tranny’s date it to’78. Amp plays and pushes air nicely. Minor blems, but tolex is in what I would call good shape for the age. I took a close mic’d vid of the amp being played to hear, and see it’s ready to go. I will pack this amp with great care, and insure it to a tee. Not in a hurry, but I have a Princeton problem and at least one or two need to move on and see more action.

1955 Fender Deluxe Tweed Small Box Narrow Panel Vintage Tube Amp 5E3 Circuit

Up for sale, a 1955 Fender Deluxe in excellent condition and in perfect working order. This first-year iteration of the narrow panel 5E3 Tweed-era circuit has the distinctive “small box” cabinet seen only on Deluxes produced in’55, notably more compact than the cabinets used from 1956-60 and significantly rarer. Few circuits are more desired and emulated than the narrow panel Tweed 5E3, and this amp delivers everything you’d expect from a classic and well cared for amp from the last iteration of the Tweed line. Incredibly dynamic and harmonically rich, the Deluxe can be glassy and clear at low volumes, but for most players the magic is in this amp’s overdrive capabilities. Especially when connecting the two channels with a small jumper 1/4 cable, the interactive pair of Volume controls can dial in everything from fully saturated roar and snarl, to the particular sweet buzzy qualities with ideal midrange bite that you often times can’t coax out of any other Tweed circuit. This amp reacts well to a host of effects pedals and different guitars, but truly shines with the guitar plugged straight into the amp, using your volume knob to coax clean rhythm tones and singing leads with the twist of a knob. The circuit is extremely original, boasting both stock Triad transformers. The amp has been freshly serviced by our techs here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with new Sprague Atom filter caps and smaller electrolytics. The amp is loaded with red Astron-style modern Jupiter caps in the preamp, with two newer CTS pots and one original Stackpole pot which dates back to the 51st week of’54. The Stackpole Tone pot also retains its original yellow Astron capacitor and distinctive “domino” Cornell Dubilier resistor. Tubes include matched RCA 6V6 power tubes, a vintage 5Y3 rectifier and one vintage RCA preamp tube paired with a complimentary modern Groove Tubes-branded valve. The speaker is the original Jensen P12R alnico 12 driver with a recent recone. This speaker dates to the 31st week of’55 and retains the original Jensen foil label on the magnet bell as well as the speaker harness with cloth-covered wire and stock 1/4 input. The tube chart is intact with a handwritten serial that matches the chassis and an “EH” date stamp which translates to August of 1955. The chassis itself retains the identical “EH” stamps. The chrome on the chassis is incredibly clean, shining like few Tweeds still do with all of the original white text present along with stock chicken head knobs. The original tweed shows deep ambering and some light wear on the enclosure edges. The original oxblood grillcloth with gold stripe is also intact and in great shape. The leather handle is a modern replacement, and the back panels are custom made to fit the unique small box cabinet, both featuring new tweed aged to match the otherwise original covering on the cabinet. The stock badge on the amp’s face simply says “Fender, ” a holdover from the earlier Tweeds before the longer “Fender Deluxe” badge that would be seen in subsequent years. Check out our shop “Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, ” and please let us know if we can answer any questions!
