Fender Princeton Reverb AA-764 Model Tube Amplifier (1965), made in Fullerton, California, serial # A-02803, black tolex covering finish.
 
Height is 16 in. (40.6 cm.), 20 in. (50.8 cm.) width, and 9 1/4 in. (23.5 cm.) deep.

Overall this is a very well preserved example of one of the hottest amps going today, vintage or modern, the blackface Fender 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 in any context.

This is a nicely original JUST CBS-era amp; the tube chart stamp is missing but based on the dated components it would have been assembled in the beginning of 1965. The power transformer is coded 606-4-39 (39th week of 1964), the output transformer 606-5-02 (2nd week of 1965) and the reverb transformer 606-4-43 (43rd week of 1964). The back panel logo still reads "Fender Electric Instrument company" generally considered the mark of a Pre-CBS amp. Externally there is some minor dirt and scuffing but overall the amp remains quite attractive; the only really notable cosmetic defect is a tear in the upper part of the grill cloth.

Internally this amp has just been serviced with a standard cap job replacing the large can cap and some of the preamp electrolytics, a re-bias to spec and a thorough internal cleaning of all pots, jacks etc. The speaker is the original Oxford 10", dated 465-507 (7th week of 1965) that has been professionally reconed by Weber Speakers; it sounds exactly as it should and has many more years in it now. Externally the amp is all original with some fairly light wear. A great sounding and growly Princeton Reverb; this is a lovely example of our single most popular amplifier in fine gigging and/or recording condition. Overall Excellent Condition.
