Fender Electric Blue '68 Custom Deluxe

The guitarist with an eye and ear for late-'60s Fender "silverface" style will love the '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb, which honors the classic look and great sound of that era's amps. Small, light and moderately powered, the Deluxe Reverb received a fresh new face in 1968--a silver-and-turquoise front panel with tone, reverb and tremolo that was still pure Fender. The '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb also has modified all-tube circuitry, vintage channel for traditional silverface tone, custom channel with Bassman tone stack, and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity and quicker gain onset. This limited edition run features a Celestion Creamback speaker, limited edition badge, and blue covering.

Features:

- Modified Deluxe Reverb all-tube circuitry
- Shared reverb and tremolo on both channels
- "Vintage" channel for traditional silverface operation
- Modified "Custom" channel with Bassman tone stack
- Reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity

- Four 1/4"" Inputs, two Custom and two Vintage)
- Two 1/4"" parallel speaker output jacks

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Killer Amp"
Overall: This was the first amp I bought in 10 years, haha. It is a big upgrade over my Blues Deluxe Reissue, which is another good sounding amp. Before I wrote this review I had it at home for about 10 days and put it through its first gig (4 hour cover band set), and let me tell you. This thing has tone for days! It shined much more at the gig than it did at home. The Blues Deluxe I couldn't turn up past 2-3, but this guy sounded great and not too loud at 5-6. You get that tube character coming through from pushing them a little bit, and everyone was talking about how much better this amp sounded. I also just really liked the blue color. Mine came with a footswitch that can't toggle the tremolo, so I would knock Fender a little bit on quality control here. I did not get the hiss that some others have complained about. I think Fender fixed this issue a couple years ago. I use this amp to play mainly country, classic rock, top 40/variety stuff, but it takes pedals very well and with them it can achieve a nice saturated metal tone. I really love it, but I think it's priced a couple hundred dollars more than it should be. Oh well, I wanted that limited edition blue!
Style of Music: I've done it all from country to death metal, from funk to reggae, from dance to indie.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
