The 1968 Fender Reverb kept the same chassis at its blackface predecessors but updated the interior circuitry and exterior with the iconic silver face plate. In addition, the ’68 model acted as the schematic for the current reissue. This amp is not a collectors amp as it has had a few mods over the years. It was owned by an electronics guy who did a few “convenience” improvements. He added a modern plug so he could remove the power cord. He added a bias point to connect a meter and bias adjustment on the back panel so he could swap tubes and bias the amp on the fly. He removed the original speaker and put in a Celestion G12M 25 watt greenback ( made in England ) that sounds absolutely fantastic. The tolex is well worn and missing on one of the back panels from years of gigging. This is not the amp for the vintage perfectionist that needs everything to be as it left the factory. This is the amp for the guy that loves these amps and wants one that sounds fantastic and wont break the bank. We have run the amp through our shop and everything on the amp is solid, works as it should. The transformers date it to 1968. It also comes with a tuki cover!
For the price of a vintage reissue, you can have the real thing!
