1972 Fender Deluxe Reverb
Posted on August 08 2019
The Reverb amplifiers that Fender was producing in the 1960s and early 1970s became an industry standard for electric guitar tone at their introduction. 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 apsirations. This versatile amplifier has been used from Funk to Country and everywhere in between. This 1972 Fender Deluxe Reverb has been out of circulation since it was bought new and rarely played. It still retains the original sales receipt, owner's manual with schematic, foot switch and RCA tubes. The only maintenance required was a proper filter cap replacement and some light deoxit to the potentiometers and contacts. The amp performs perfectly and functions just like it did right out of the factory in 1972. The tolex, face plate and grille cloth show very minimal wear and are free of large imperfections. The original owner did inscribe some numbers on the faceplate near the "Deluxe Reverb" logo. All parts are original to the amp except for the electrolytic filter capacitors. All parts perform as they should and do not exhibit wear or limited function. The foot switch is original to this amp as well. The unit is now in perfect performance ready condition and still retains all the proper collectibility of a vintage amp. The blackface and early silverface era Fender Deluxe Reverb-Amp is one of those pieces that every vintage inspired studio should have in their arsenal. All original parts in a vintage amp means that it hasn't been abused or improperly treated throughout its lifetime.
