This is really a vintage amp and NOT a reissue. This amp is as mint as mint can be; a 1962 Fender Deluxe Brown Amp in AMAZING condition!
220 volts and complete with all original parts. The only thing that has been done to this amp is an Elco change. The original elco’s are included. Nice detail is that the footswitch actually looks new and has clearly never been used. The tolex and the grill cloth are excellent. The factory Oxford speaker is in perfect condition.
This amp sounds phenomenal and works like the day it was born. It sounds great and clean at 4 and below, but 5 and above is where this amp really wants to be – and it’s loud.
One of the most celebrated guitar amplifiers ever produced, the Fender Deluxe has been in continuous production, in various versions, since 1946. Originally introduced as the Model 26 with a 10″ speaker and wood cabinetry, the model was rechristened the Deluxe in 1948, and fitted with tweed covering and 12″ speaker. Upgraded to 15 watts in 1954, the Deluxe was redesigned with the lustrous brown Tolex covering in 1961. Produced only until mid-1963, brown Tolex models are among of the rarest of all Fender amplifiers.
An exceptionally fine example of pre-CBS production, this legendary amp features hand soldered point-to-point circuitry, and a classic 12″ Oxford speaker. Six knob layout includes Normal and Bright channels, the latter with tremelo Speed and Intensity controls. All original gleaming brown Tolex covering, grille cloth, knobs, foot switch and leather handle. The amplifier has been maintained in uncannily pristine condition, grounded power cord and shielded speaker lead. A timeless classic, this brown beauty looks much like it did when it left the Fullerton factory in 1962, the same year the Beatles released their very first 45.
Warm and throaty, the amp delivers sweet clean response at very low volume levels, and crunches nicely when cranked, making it a favorite for studios, small clubs, or jam sessions.
