Up for sale, a 1975 Fender Deluxe Reverb in exceptional condition and in perfect working order. This vintage Silverface-era Deluxe excels at delivering sparkling, detailed cleans with great headroom, and the lush reverb accentuates the chiming, smooth treble response. Both channels sound distinct and strong, and turning things up past 5 on the Volume dial introduces glassy overdriven textures and a touch of compression. It's everything you could want from a vintage Fender amp.
The circuit is extremely original and the preamp is untouched save for a new bias cap and a few smaller high-quality Sprague electrolytics. The original Schumacher transformers date between late '73 and early '75, and visible date codes on the CTS pots date to the 39th week of '74. The preamp retains all of the original blue molded signal caps, and the power supply has been professionally recapped with Sprague Atoms. The original Utah 12" speaker has a clean black frame, blue foil Fender label on the ceramic magnet, and date stamp on the edge of the frame from the 26th week of '75. The tube chart is intact on the inside of the cabinet as well with crisp corners.
Cosmetically, this amp is exceedingly clean as the photos can attest, with original smooth black tolex and silver sparkle grillcloth with pale orange stripe. The faceplate positively gleams with its near mint turquoise text and full complement of witch hat knobs. All of the stock hardware is present including the handle caps, chassis straps, logo, and sphinx glides (feet).
A modern two-button footswitch is included, along with a modern slip cover.
