Fender GB George Benson Hot Rod Deluxe Guitar Combo Amplifier (40 Watts)

Designed with the help of jazz guitar virtuoso George Benson, this 40-Watt, all-tube combo amp uses a 100-watt Jensen speaker for a clean but resonant sound.
The GB Hot Rod Deluxe(TM) is a 40 watt 1x12-inch combo especially fine-tuned for world-famous jazz guitar virtuoso and pop artist George Benson. It has the full bottom-end characteristic of 6L6 tubes, and a versatile all-tube preamp--including a 12AT7 up front for cleaner tone; especially with humbucking pickups. A 100-watt Jensen(R) C12K speaker handles the immediacy of Benson's singing soloing style with clarity and range, and the solid-pine cabinet increases tonal resonance while reducing weight. Standard features include clean and "drive/more-drive" channels, resounding Fender spring reverb, effects loop and more. Personalized exterior touches specified by Benson himself include gray-black vinyl covering, silver-strand grille cloth and "GB" logo badge. Road worthy deluxe padded cover and two-button footswitch included.

Guitarists of all kinds play through Fender Hot Rod Deluxe(TM) amplifiers. Rockers, pop stars, cowboys and more all agree that they deliver unmistakable Fender tone--perfect amps for crafting your own sound, and extremely responsive to your favorite stomp-box effects.
