2018 Fender '57 Custom Deluxe "Tweed" Tube Amp 5E3, Blonde w/ Celestion Alnico Cream, Cover


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2018 Fender '57 Custom Tweed Deluxe 5E3 tube amp in near mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original slip cover. A no-corners-cut version of the most revered tube amp circuit of all time, this Deluxe is a discontinued, limited edition model covered in rough blonde tolex paired with wheat grillcloth. This Tweed-style Fender amp boasts hand-wired circuitry, Mercury Magnetics transformers, a solid pine cabinet, and a Celestion Cream alnico magnet 12" speaker

A portable, lightweight, and versatile amp, this modern iteration of the legendary 5E3 four input narrow panel Tweed Deluxe circuit is faithful to the original and uses top quality components such as Sprague Atom filter caps and low noise metal film resistors. The tone can range from clear and dynamic Fender clean tones to searing full tube saturation and rich overdrive with the turn of a knob. The four input design is ideal for linking the two channels and allowing the separate Volume controls to interact for an even wider array of nuanced and sizzling sounds. With a bit of natural compression and tube rectifier sag, the '57 Deluxe is an amp that breathes and responds with an expression and richness that few amps can match, and the 5E3 circuit has been a platform for countless boutique amp designers.

The amp has been sparingly played since new, and the tube complement includes a matched pair of Groove Tubes 6V6s. The chrome faceplate is immaculate with its stock chicken head knobs, and the blonde tolex is extremely well-kept.
