  • CLASSIC TWEED TONE
    Heard on countless recordings since the 1950s, the timeless guitar amp tone of the original-era tweed-covered Fender amps and their descendants really come alive when cranked with remarkable touch sensitivity and sound

    SPECIAL DESIGN SPEAKER
    This special-design speaker uses vintage-era construction for versatile, highly dynamic tone spanning every sonic shade from clean to mean.

    VINTAGE-STYLE YELLOW CAPACITORS
    This amp features custom-made yellow coupling capacitors chosen specifically for their authentic vintage Fender tone. In vintage tone circuits they generate extra harmonic content and airiness.

    CHROME CONTROL PANEL
    In addition to the handsome covering, this amp features the silvery style of a mirrored chrome control panel.

    LEATHER HANDLE
    As a special touch, this amps handle is carefully crafted from leather. Not only is the handle durable and stylish, the all-leather construction is an authentic detail from our past.

    LOGO BADGE
    In a nod to our past, the logo badge is a reproduction of the classic badge and font used on our classic late-50s tweed amps.
