Fender Princeton Reverb Model Tube Amplifier (1966), made in Fullerton, California, serial # A-08947, black tolex covering finish.

Clean! This is a truly beautifully preserved example of one of the favorite amps out there, the blackface Princeton Reverb. The combination of clean, crunch and natural overdrive this model offers perfectly suits the modern world's lower volume requirements, and they always sound great. This early-CBS/Fender example has a tube chart code PC designating assembly in March 1966. The original Oxford Special Design speaker is coded 220-514 indicating it was made in early spring 1965. The original cone is fully intact and sounds great. The power transformer is dated to the first week of 1966, with the output transformer dated the 47th week of 1965.
Height is 16 in. (40.6 cm.), 20 in. (50.8 cm.) width, and 9 1/4 in. (23.5 cm.) deep.
Externally this amp is all original and VERY clean with only some light cosmetic wear. It has been recently serviced with a standard cap job, the Electrolytic caps and can cap replaced, while the signal caps (the lovely Blue Astrons) remain intact. A three prong power cord has been added and the Death cap removed. The amp has been re-biased to spec and had a thorough cleaning of all pots, jacks etc. The reverb tank is original, the tubes more recent as follows: Rectifier: Amperez GZ34, Power: 2x Russian Military NOS 6V6, V4: Sovtek 12AX7, V3, Mullard 12AX7, V2, 12AT7, V1, RCA 7025

This is a great sounding amp that hardly shows its age at all, except for sonically! Once again we hail the mighty Princeton, in any configuration one of Leo Fender's more modest but universally lovable creations! Excellent + Condition.
