Fender ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb Reissue
Fender ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb ReissueLike Part Number: Princeton
1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender but a look that was brand new. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum "drip edge" grille cloth trim, the Princeton Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the perfect recording and gigging amp. Small, light and moderately powered, it produced big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Princeton Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.
The original 1964 Fender Princeton Reverb featured a "blackface" face plate, until in 1968 when someone thought, "this would look way cooler with a brushed aluminum face plate, a drip edge grille cloth trim right?"
Right they were, because Silverface Fender amps are a tradition continued to this day. The Fender '68 Custom Princeton Reverb is a callback to the original Silverface Princeton Reverb. It keeps that classic look, sound, and performance, but it also adds a modified tone circuit which gives modern players enhanced tonal flexibility with pedals, and reduced negative feedback gives better touch sensitivity and quicker onset of overdrive!
The '68 Custom Princeton Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender's late-'60s "silverface" amps. In a special twist, a modified tone circuit gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals, and the amp's reduced negative feedback gives greater touch sensitivity and quicker onset of overdrive. The '68 Custom Princeton Reverb's single 10" Celestion TEN30 speaker also delivers a more distinctively rock 'n roll flavor.
