Up for sale, a 2017 Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb tube amp in near mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original slip cover and two-button footswitch. The amp boasts all-tube circuitry, hand-wired tube sockets, and custom-made Schumacher transformers.
A two channel design with Vintage and Custom voicings, the amp delivers both traditional sparkling cleans via the Vintage channel and increased touch sensitivity and quicker overdrive from the Custom channel, thanks to a tweaked negative feedback circuit. The amp is loaded with a 12" Celestion G12V-70 speaker, a popular speaker for voicing a Deluxe circuit while adding a bit more detail and articulation than the speakers offered in previous Deluxe iterations. The cleans are sparkly and balanced, the overdrive is surprisingly rich, and the amp features Fender's classic Tremolo and Reverb effects, both accessible via the included two-button footswitch.
The amp functions exactly as intended, and the tube complement includes matched 6V6 Groove Tubes power tubes, the original Fender-branded GZ34 rectifier, and a host of modern Tung Sol 12AX7s in the preamp. Both the reverb driver and phase inverter are vintage USA-made 12AT7s.
Cosmetically, this Deluxe is clean as can be with smooth black tolex, silver sparkle grillcloth framed by aluminum "drip edge" trim, and flawless nickel hardware. Clearly sparingly played since new, this amp comes complete with its original slip cover and two-button footswitch.
