'57 Custom Deluxe: Classic Rock's Signature Stage Amp Returns!

The Fender '57 Custom Deluxe hand-wired guitar combo amplifier is a modern reincarnation of Fender's classic Tweed Deluxe amplifier. Originally produced from 1948 through 1966 -- and highly sought-after ever since -- Fender's Tweed Deluxe amp became a favored stage amp for dozens of rock, blues, and country-western guitarists. True to the original, this '57 Custom Deluxe offers 12 watts of power through a single 12-inch speaker, enough power to cut through the mix of a full on-stage rock ensemble with tried-and-true vintage sound.

Classic Components

Sometimes less really is more, and the circuitry of the 1950s Fender Deluxe amp is the perfect example of beauty in simplicity. Faithful to its predecessor, the '57 Custom Deluxe offers a period-accurate reconstruction of the 5E3 amplification circuit used in the original narrow-panel Fender Tweed Deluxe amps. Offering two instrument and microphone channels, the '57 Custom Deluxe is equipped with dual preamp and dual power amp tubes and a shared rectifier tube, exactly like a real 1950s Fender Deluxe amp. From studio to stage, the '57 Custom Deluxe is the king of classic rock.

- Faithful reissue of Fender's classic 1957 narrow-panel tweed Deluxe amplifier
- 12-watt hand-wired tube combo amplifier for guitar
- Two non-switching (simultaneous) channels: instrument and microphone

- Two 1/4-inch guitar inputs (normal and bright)
- Two 1/4-inch microphone inputs for instruments or guitar and mic output from the same amp

Fender '57 Custom Deluxe Combo Amplifier

The original all-tube 5E3 circuit is renowned for its early-onset distortion and highly interactive controls--a little experimentation unlocks a world of tonal treats for your ears. The classic design is updated with improved volume pot tapers, offering more precise control at low settings used for rich, mellow clean tone from the Instrument and Mic channels. The handwired circuit includes premium yellow coupling capacitors chosen for their authentic vintage Fender tone--producing sparkly cleans and creamy overdrive with smooth top end and round mids. A newly designed single 12" 8-ohm Eminence(R) Special Design alnico speaker delivers these rocking vintage tones, driven by a pair of 6V6 power tubes for 12 watts of classic tube sound and touch-sensitive response.

Period-accurate appointments include a lacquered tweed covering and a top-mounted control panel with easy access to the highly responsive chickenhead control knobs--all housed in a durable cabinet. With timeless looks and premium vintage sound, the '57 Custom Deluxe delivers everything a guitarist's heart could desire. Includes a protective cover.
