Fender Champ 5F1 Model Tube Amplifier (1958), made in Fullerton, California, tweed finish.
 
Height is 11 3/4 in. (29.8 cm.), 13 1/4 in. (33.7 cm.) width, and 6 1/2 in. (16.5 cm.) deep.

This is a nicely well-preserved early 1958 tweed Champ with a tube-chart and chassis ink-stamp "HB", wired up by Lilly in February 1959. This amp has just been serviced and is sounding great; this included a grounded 3-prong cord, standard filter cap job and re-biasing to spec. No circuit changes have been made. It retains the original transformers and original Oxford speaker dated the 50th week of 1957, just perfectly re-coned by Weber.

Externally the tweed is nice with some light wear to edges and corners. The original leather handle is still intact and the faceplate shows only some light corrosion with minor loss to the stenciled graphics around the volume knob. This is yet another great-sounding late '50's tweed Champ, a perennial favorite amp -- small in size but a monster in tone! Overall Excellent Condition.
