1956 Fender Deluxe Amp

The Fender 5E3 tweed Deluxe is considered by many the perfect recording amp. It offers 12 watts from two 6V6 output tubes through a 12” Jensen speaker in a finger jointed pine cab. This example features a naturally ambered original tweed covering. The sound is authentic golden era Fender tweed tone. It's been well maintained and serviced (recapped, three prong cord added, high quality handle added). Old parts in photo are included in sale. All transformers are original. Speaker is a Jensen Alnico P12Q from 1958.
