This vintage 1966 Fender Princeton Reverb guitar amplifier came through the shop a few years ago. The Princeton Reverb is my favorite vintage guitar amp because of its perfect size and volume level, swampy Reverb, and thorough tremolo tone. I'm always a vintage Fender guitar amp buyer but I especially love the Princeton Reverb amps. Please contact me here to sell a vintage Fender guitar amp

1966 Fender Princeton Reverb~Amp with Vibrato!

  • Very nice grill cloth and Tolex
  • Some wear to the Tolex on the bottom below the back panel

Notes: A very fine sounding example of the desirable black faceplate era Fender Princeton Reverb! We love how the Princeton Reverb can handle thick cleans as well as overdriven crunch. The JBL seems to hold together a lot better than the original 10J4 Oxford speakers we usually see in PR amps.
