1960 Fender Princeton Tweed Vintage Tube Amplifier Narrow Panel with Cover

Up for sale, a 1960 Fender Princeton in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. This narrow panel tweed amp is one of the nicer golden-age Fender amps to come through our shop. With its narrow panel configuration, this Princeton is considered the “big box” version, with a cab that’s far larger than the single 8 alnico speaker requires, and the resulting sound is deceptively round and rich for the relatively small speaker size. Complete with the original Victoria Luggage canvas cover, this amp is a remarkable find with well-preserved tweed. Actually a pairing of two different tweed-era Princetons, the exceedingly clean cabinet with original lacquered tweed, leather handle, logo, oxblood grill, and tube chart dates to 1956, while the chassis itself has components dating from late 1959-early 60. The circuit couldn’t be more simple and pure, with single Volume and Tone knobs and a Class A circuit design, powered by a single 6V6 power tube. The tone is articulate, dynamic and commanding, with the sizzle and churning overdrive of a Champ, but with more tonal range and fuller low end. The top end response is just right, and the amp doesn’t get too trebly, making the tone control quite usable for dialing in exactly as much zing and snap as you desire. The circuit is completely untouched, and the original Schumacher transformers which date to the 44th week of’59 (output) and 12th week of 1960 (power). The original Stackpole pots, yellow Astron capacitors, and even the original filter caps are all present. As a testament to the construction of these amps, it has never needed to be serviced. The power tube and 5Y3 rectifier are both Sylvania valves, while the single 12AX7 in the preamp was manufactured by Tung Sol. The original two-prong gray power cable has been upgraded to a black, grounded three-prong. The speaker has a very clean gray frame, original cone, and stock cloth wiring harness with RCA end. The tube chart is notable for its well-preserved condition, with perfect corners and clearly written serial number. There is light ambering of the tweed, with a few exceedingly minor marks and scuffs, and wear mostly relegated to the bottom corners of the enclosure. On the bottom, there is some staining from the rubber feet in a ring around the sphinx glides. The faceplate is very clean, with all of the white silkscreened font, shiny chrome, and a pair of original chicken head knobs. This amp is a true rarity, given its condition, and this particular example has been carefully tested and inspected to ensure originality and ideal functionality. The original brown canvas Victoria Luggage cover is included. 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.

1954 Fender Super Tweed Wide Panel Vintage Tube Amp 2x10 with Jensen P10R, 5D4

Up for sale, a 1954 Fender Super, complete a pair of Jensen P10R alnico 10 speakers. A “Wide Panel” Tweed amp, this particular iteration of the Super is one of the earliest examples of the 5D4 circuit, only available from 1954-55. The Tweed Super is the baby brother of the Bassman in many respects, offering the same harmonic rich, dynamic tones in a more studio friendly and portable enclosure. The low end is wooly and thick, the midrange has just the right amount of punch, and the top end is classic’50s Fender with detail and balance that few other amps can match. Clear and present, with incredible low end response even at low volumes, the Super allows you to easily dial in the right amount of bite and a touch of overdrive when you dig in. After around 4-5 on the volume dial, the amp cascades into full tube saturation, with sweet, singing overdrive. Thoroughly maintained, this Fender Super sounds every bit as good as vintage amp lore would suggest. The circuit has just been gone through by our techs here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, and the preamp boasts a bevy of original Black Cat tone caps as well as the original trio of Stackpole pots which date to’54. An original Astron “dynamite” cap is coupled to the Tone control, and the majority of the original resistors are intact too. The power amp has been professionally recapped with Sprague Atom capacitors to ensure optimal performance and stability. The power transformer is the original Triad, and the open bell output transformer appears original or at least era-correct, dating to 1954 although the leads have been spliced. On the faceplate, the stock chicken head knobs are intact and a modest amount of the original white lettering is present as well. The 5D4 circuit was also the first Super to feature a Standby switch, like the example seen here. The amp is fitted with a pair of vintage Jensen P10R speakers with very dark green frames and professional recones, dating to the first weeks of 1960. The stock tube chart is present and quite clean, denoting the 5C4 circuit, but also modified by hand at the factory to reflect the updated tube compliment of the 5D4 circuit (a common occurrence given how quickly circuits changed in the’50s and Leo Fender’s propensity to not waste anything). The amp has an older and extremely well executed retweed, very faithful to original spec and lightly aged. The lower back panel, in contrast, does have its original tweed covering. Comparable only to the Bassman in terms of Fender’s tweed dual 6L6 offerings, the Super is a standout favorite among collectors and players alike! 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.

1955 Fender Deluxe Tweed Pre-CBS Narrow Panel Vintage Tube Amp 5E3 Circuit

Up for sale, a 1955 Fender Deluxe in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Few circuits are more desired and emulated than the narrow panel Tweed 5E3, and this first-year narrow panel model 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 preamp is very original and only maintained as strictly necessary, balancing originality and functionality. The original Stackpole pots (dating to the 3rd week of’55) and carbon comp resistors are intact, as well as all of the original red dynamite Astron tone caps. The power amp has been professionally recapped as well, and the new caps have been sleeved in the original Mighty Midget wrappers for a seamless vintage look. The amp is loaded with a combination of newer and vintage valves, and all tubes have been tested and work optimally. The speaker is an era-correct Jensen P12Q alnico 12 speaker with a clean teal frame and Jensen sticker. This speaker dates to 1962, and features a new speaker harness with cloth covered wire and Switchcraft 1/4 jack. The other most pertinent date code is the “EJ” stamp on the very clean tube chart, which translates to October of’55. The serial number stamped on the chassis also matches the hand-serialized tube chart. The chrome on the chassis is quite clean, with minimal pitting and the original white silkscreen text present along with stock chicken head knobs. In similar condition, the original tweed covering and oxblood grillcloth show only light wear on the edges of the enclosure, with modest ambering of the lacquer on the tweed, and some requisite minor scuffs and corner wear. Both back panels are modern replacements courtesy of MojoTone, carefully aged to match the original tweed on the rest of the amp. This Deluxe is an example that will satisfy collectors and serious players alike, and the amp has recently been given a clean bill of health, ready for your next gig or studio session. Check out our shop “Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, ” and please let us know if we can answer any questions!

1960 Fender Vibrolux Tweed Narrow Panel Vintage Tube Amp with Victoria Cover

Up for sale, a 1960 Fender Vibrolux in excellent condition and in good working order, well maintained and complete with the original Victoria Luggage cover! This amp is from the most desirable run of Fender tweed amps from the late 50s, with the “narrow panel” cabinet design and a tone that is quintessential vintage Fender. The circuit is completely original save for a recap with high quality electrolytic caps, featuring Sprauge Atoms in the power supply to keep the amp operating within original factory spec. With a complete vintage tube set (including matched Sylvania 6V6 power tubes), this amp delivers the classic tweed tone with incredible dynamics, harmonic richness, and tonal clarity. The amp stays surprisingly clean with just the right amount of overdrive and very tight bass response for an amp with the original Jensen 10 speaker. The tremolo is bias based, meaning that it turns the tubes on and off at a rate and intensity set by the controls, and has a nice strong pulse to it, with a smooth waveform that has a good amount of intensity and chop on tap. Aside from the aforementioned recap and one new CTS pot, the circuit is completely stock with original Triad transformers and the coveted yellow Astron tone caps still present. The clean tube chart has a “JB” stamp which dates to February of’60. The chassis is quite clean, with moderate patina on the chrome control plate. The majority of the original white lettering is intact, along with the stock chicken head knobs. The stock metal handle ends are intact along with a new leather handle that matches the style of the original. The stock gray two-prong power cord is still on the amp as well. The original alnico Jensen P10R 10 speaker is intact with a very clean green/blue frame, original bell cover, and clean Jensen label. The date code on the edge of the speaker frame translates to the 36th week of 1959. The original lacquered tweed is intact, showing light ambering and some minor scuffs and wear, primarily on the lower left corner of the enclosure and bottom of the amp. The original Oxblood grillcloth is clean and tight, with no snags or rips. This is a wonderful amp from one of Fender’s most famed eras, and both a perfect piece for a collector or a reliable gigging and studio machine! The original Victoria Luggage brown canvas cover is included. Check out our shop “Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, ” and please let us know if we can answer any questions!

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!

Up for sale, a Vox AC50/4 Mk II “Big Box” tube amplifier head in excellent condition and in perfect working order. An uncommon transitional amp only offered briefly in’64, this UK made JMI AC50 still retains the GZ34 rectifier of the earlier small box versions, as well as sporting the combination of the early brown lattice grillcloth paired with a (new for’64) gray faceplate. Essentially the same as the Mk I AC50 circuit with a second set of inputs and second channel, the big box version for’64 is a real powerhouse. The dual EL34 design has plenty of British sizzle and chime, with big, bold overdrive when you dime it out. And yes, this amp pairs exceedingly well with your favorite Rickenbacker or Gretsch Tennessean if you want the iconic British Invasion sounds of you know who. The circuit has been thoroughly serviced and left original in all the ways that count, with stock output and power transformers and a recap of the power supply to ensure that everything is operating within original factory spec. The pots have been replaced with new Alphas that turn smoothly and work reliably. A new Hammond choke is also present inside the chassis. The gray metal faceplate retains all of the original graphics, with all six of the stock chicken head knobs. The head cabinet retains the original black basketweave tolex paired with the original brown lattice diamond grillcloth and gold piping. The jacks on the stock back panel have been converted from the original three-pin variety to a more conventional 1/4 configuration. Other small yet meaningful original bits include the plastic handle, raised Vox logo, and model/serial number badge on the back. The corners are vintage two-pin replacements. Check out our shop “Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, ” and please let us know if we can answer any questions!

Up for sale, a 1956 Fender Deluxe in excellent condition and in perfect working order. 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 very original and only maintained as strictly necessary, balancing originality and functionality. The preamp features original Stackpole pots and carbon comp resistors, as well as all of the original yellow Astron tone caps. The power amp has been professionally recapped as well, and the new caps have been sleeved in the original Mighty Midget wrappers for a seamless vintage look. Both of the original transformers are intact, and the amp is loaded with a full compliment of vintage tubes including a matched pair of Sylvania 6V6s and General Electric and Amperex valves in the preamp. The speaker is a genuine, era-correct Jensen P12R alnico 12 speaker with an immaculate teal frame and Jensen sticker. This speaker dates back to 1958, and retains the original speaker harness with cloth covered wire and stock 1/4 input as well. The other most pertinent date code is the “FH” stamp on the very clean tube chart, which translates to August of’56. 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. In similar condition, the original tweed and oxblood grillcloth show only light wear on the edges of the enclosure, with ambering of the lacquer on the tweed, and some requisite minor scuffs and corner wear. The leather handle is a modern replacement as is the upper back panel, while the lower back panel is original. It’s an example that will satisfy collectors and serious players alike, and the amp has recently been given a clean bill of health, ready for your next gig or studio session.

We use double thick boxes, 1″ foam, and industrial 1/2″ bubble wrap to assure that your amp arrives safely.

Up for sale, a 1957 Fender Deluxe in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Competitively priced with a new tweed speaker cabinet, original and freshly reconed Jensen P12R speaker, and recently serviced chassis, there are few circuits that are more desired and emulated than the narrow panel Tweed 5E3 Deluxe. 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.

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 has been thoroughly maintained, with a professional recap of the main filters, a three-prong power cable, and USA-made transformers courtesy of Classic Tone. The preamp is stocked with early’60s blue Ajax tone caps as well as two newer Alpha pots and one original Stackpole tone pot (with yellow Astron cap) that dates to the 23rd week of 1957. The original Jensen P12R alnico 12″ speaker is present and has the original Jensen “Alnico 5 sticker, dating to the 21st week of 1957 on the edge of the frame. The speaker has the original harness with cloth covered wire and stock 1/4 input as well, and the speaker has been professionally reconed in the amp’s lifetime. The amp features a new tweed speaker cabinet with the original speaker baffle, oxblood grillcloth, and “Fender Deluxe” badge on the face. The chrome on the chassis shows plenty of wear, yet some of the original white silkscreen text is still present and the stock chicken head knobs are also intact. This is an exquisite sounding 5E3 Deluxe that has been recently given a clean bill of health and is ready for your next gig or studio session!
