1957 Fender Champ-Amp Tweed 5F1, 6"


This clean 1957 Fender Champ guitar amplifier with 5F1 circuit and 6" Oxford 6EV speaker is a nicely preserved example. It retains all its original parts except for likely a replaced 12AX7 preamp tube with a Mullard branded tube. It's a fine sounding guitar amplifier the thick cleans and crunchy growl.

Make and Model: Fender Champ-Amp, 5F1 circuit

Year: 1957. Tube chart code "GE" indicating May of 1957. Check out my blog post on How To Date A Vintage Fender Guitar Amplifier.

Specifications: One 12AX7 preamp tube, one 6V6 power tube, one 5Y3 rectifier tube. Early 1957 with 6" Oxford 6EV speaker. 

Condition: Very good! The tweed shows light wear with scuffs and some staining. The faceplate shows light corrosion. 

Cleaning Process: I fully disassembled the amp and vacuumed everything. I cleaned the potentiometers, cleaned the jacks, and cleaned and tensioned the tube sockets.
