Up for sale, a 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb, very original and freshly serviced. Widely considered to be one of the greatest tube amps of all time, this Deluxe Reverb was produced early in the second full year of production, with a “Fender Electric Instruments” faceplate, rare no logo grill, and date codes spanning the last weeks of the Pre-CBS era and subsequent buyout. Stocked with a matched pair of fresh JJ 6V6 power 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 sweet, balanced sound that delivers the top end sparkle and clarity characteristic of the best amps from Fender’s Blackface era. This amp is very dynamic, working as a perfect platform for effects pedals and while the treble response can twang with the best, there’s a smoothness to the top end that keeps the amp from ever sounding harsh. Turning it up past 4 on the volume dial, the amp begins to push into overdrive territory with light compression and plenty of sizzle. The Reverb is very lush with 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 very original and only serviced as strictly necessary to ensure optimal playability. All of the original blue molded Ajax tone caps intact in the preamp (an essential part of the Blackface sound), and all of the original CTS pots are intact as well, dating to late’64. The original Schumacher transformers span late’64 and very early in 1965. The power supply has been professionally recapped, and the smaller bias and bypass caps in the preamp have been replaced as well. A three-prong cable has been installed too. The tube chart is present, with an “OD” date code which translates to April of 1965. The speaker is a vintage, era-correct Oxford 12K5-6 with a clean black frame and the original Fender blue foil label on the magnet. One of Fender’s (and Oxford’s) rarest speakers, the 12K5-6 was only used in the Deluxe Reverb and this speaker retains a very clean, original cone. Cosmetically, the amp is complete with the original smooth black tolex and silver sparkle grillcloth. The grillcloth has aged moderately since’65 and the Blackface faceplate shows very little wear with all of the black witch hat knobs intact. The tolex shows some wear at the corners corners along with some requisite stray nicks and scuffs and a single cigarette burn on the top, and overall this amp presents well. A logo was added to the grill and subsequently removed, showing a very faint outline of its placement, and an extra set of feet was installed on the bottom of the enclosure. All of the original hardware including the corners, handle caps, sphinx glides (feet) and logo is present. A modern two-button footswitch is included.

Up for sale, a 1961 Fender Deluxe tube amplifier in excellent condition and in perfect working order with a complete vintage tube set. Manufactured near the beginning of the Brownface era, this amp has a well maintained 6G3 circuit, providing a perfect middle ground between the warmth and dynamic range of the Tweed amps that preceded it, and the clarity and chime of the Blackface amps that would be introduced a couple years later. There’s an incredible range to the tone controls on this amp, and everything from rich and mellow sounds to twangy and crystalline bite is available at the turn of a knob. The bias based tremolo circuit is deep and throbbing, with a very smooth waveform and a tone that has an almost three-dimensional quality. It’s truly one of the best examples of this classic Fender effect! The preamp has been professionally recapped, and the power supply features new Sprague Atom filter caps as well to ensure that the amp is operating reliably within original factory spec. The original Schumacher output transformer is intact and dates to the 46th week of’61, while the power transformer is a vintage replacement. The CTS pots date all the way back to late 1959, and the circuit retains the original carbon comp resistors and cloth covered wire. The amp features a complete vintage tube set, with a matched pair of RCA 6V6s, a USA-made Tung Sol 5Y3 rectifier, and Tung Sol and Amperex valves in the preamp. The power cable is a modern three-prong variety as well. The stock Oxford 12K5 speaker is intact with a clean frame and date code from the 43rd week of 1961. Inside the cab, the original tube chart is partially present too. Cosmetically, this amp is clean as can be with original rough brown tolex and the original leather handle. The original baffle board has been professionally regrilled with modern wheat grillcloth. The original chassis straps, handle caps, and sphinx glides (feet) are also intact. If you’re looking for a Deluxe that can be reliably gigged while also being original in the ways that count, this is an ideal example with a complete vintage tube set!
