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.

From the craftsmanship of the amp itself and up to the glorious tone... This is amp is amazing and worth every dollar. I have owned several Fender amps over the years ranging from vintage 50's to modern builds and this is one of my favorites.
