This is a vintage 1962 Fender Brownface Deluxe. It is an original Deluxe, not a reissue. 1962 was a great year for music. It's the same year Booker T. & the M.G.'s are formed here in Memphis, TN. The Beatles played their first session at EMI's Abbey Road Studios in London. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards met Brian Jones at the Ealing Club, a blues club in London. And this amp was built.
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.
This is an exceptionally fine example of pre-CBS production. It's so clean it could easily pass as a reissue. This 1962 Fender Deluxe amp features hand soldered point-to-point circuitry, and a classic 12" blue Jensen t 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 and sounds equally amazing. RCA 6V6 power tubes. The handle is a new replacement and the original handle is included. A timeless classic, this brown beauty looks much like it did when it left the Fullerton factory in 1962.
$325.00Fender's Vaporizer amp evokes the 1950s-'60s age of the Space Race, when the atom-age world became enthralled with spaceflight and spacecraft. When the wild flights of fancy it launched permeated culture everywhere from film and television to cars, guitars, appliances and more--everything was bright, colorful and flashy. Garage bands blasted off with guitar music, and legions of musicians who couldn't swing pro gear bashed away on department-store guitars and amps. Learn More
