Fender '57 Custom Champ Guitar Combo Amp

The Fender '57 Champ amp of the late 1950s is well known as the small-but-mighty tone machine that belongs in every serious guitarist's collection. The release of the '57 Champ adds this iconic, one-of-a-kind product to Fender's '57 Tweed Series.

Rock Historical

The tweed Champ is a terrific practice amp, and has been a prized possession of countless pro players for its great sounding, low-output, easy-to-record capabilities. It's well documented that this model has been used on recordings by Johnny Cash, Keith Richards and Eric Clapton (it's the "Layla" amp). And with its rich tone and touch-sensitive response, the Champ is great for making cool new music today.

This faithful hand-wired recreation of the 1957 Champ amp is not just for collectors or retro-minded guitarists. Any player seeking the ultimate in low-powered, top-quality tube performance need look no further!
