Up for sale, a 1972 Fender Bronco in exceptional condition and in perfect working order with a 100% original circuit. Identical to the Vibro Champ in terms of circuitry, and a cosmetically rarer variant paired with Fender's Bronco guitar, this amp boasts one of Fender's purest circuits. This Class A design delivers five all tube watts of clear, chiming cleans and raucous, sizzling drive with a twist of the Volume knob. This Bronco breaks up nicely too, sounding positively huge with a mic in front of it. The Vibrato has a nice pulse and chop, and this amp is a studio and apartment-friendly combo that delivers a dynamic, sparkling vintage Fender sound.
The circuit is untouched, and all components have been tested, ensuring optimal performance. The original Schumacher-made transformers date to '72, and all of the original CTS pots are intact with visible date codes from the 38th week of '71. The tube complement includes modern JJ preamp and rectifier tubes, with the original Fender-branded USA-made 6V6 power tube.
The speaker is an era-correct Oxford-made and Fender-branded 8" alnico magnet driver. The original tube chart is intact inside the cabinet as well.
The original smooth black tolex and silver sparkle grillcloth with turquoise stripe is intact, and the faceplate is positively gleaming with the red silkscreen text exclusive to the Bronco model, along with full complement of witch hat knobs. The original hardware is intact including the handle caps, chassis straps, sphinx glides (feet), and raised logo.
