Fender '68 Custom Princeton Reverb Amp

1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender but a look that was modern. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum "drip edge" grille cloth trim, the Princeton Reverb received a fresh 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 Fender '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(R) TEN 30 speaker also delivers a more distinctively rock 'n' roll flavor.

"Wow!"

I purchased this from ZZ as a B-Stock, and it is in perfect condition. The sound is amazing, I got rid of my hand-wired boutique amp with 6V6 tubes for this one. It sounds absolutely amazing with my strat and tele. My MIA PRS gets great crunch, in the main input, but you need to use teh secondary input to get a clean tone out of it. This amp is louder than you might think, gets louder up till about 5 and then just gets crunchier, but not tweedish crunch, more like a British crunch (must be the speaker they paired with it). I had some fun this weekend and maxed out the amp with my Strat and it was tonal bliss and the amp cleaned up nice when i rolled the dial back and the strat cleaned up beautifully. The amp is very touch responsive. I highly recommend this amp, if you need something louder just mic it!
