1966 Fender Deluxe Reverb-Amp with cover
Posted on May 26 2020
This clean 1966 Fender Deluxe Reverb guitar amp with original Victoria Luggage cover came through the shop a few years ago. It's an excellent example of a well preserved vintage Fender guitar amplifier. I'm always a vintage Fender guitar amp buyer but I especially love the 1960s Deluxe Reverb amps. Please contact me here to sell a vintage Fender guitar amplifier.
Since their introduction in 1964, the Fender amplifiers with Reverb have been an industry standard for electric guitar tone. The Deluxe Reverb is the most popular of the line with its manageable ~22 watt output and 12" speaker. The Reverb and Tremolo that this amp features has become the benchmark by which many other amp builders have based their circuit and tonal aspirations. This versatile amplifier has been used from Funk to Country and everywhere in between.
Gordon purchased the 1966 Fender Deluxe Reverb-Amp brand new to amplify his Farfisa compact organ in the band he was playing with. Gordon said he played with them for a year or so before leaving to start his career. The amp went into the closet under the cover for protection. He's just recently brought the amp out and it is ready to go. We updated the filter capacitors and power cord to ensure safe operation. The Tolex is in nice condition but does have a significant scratch on underside of the bottom panel.
