1960 Fender Harvard Amp Tweed 5F10 – Narrow Panel

We present an original 1960 Fender Harvard amplifier tweed 5F10 Narrow Panel. Made in Fullerton, California.

This rare 1960 Fender Harvard is a unique model, sitting just below the Deluxe in terms of output with two 6V6 power tubes, a substantially sized cabinet, and a single Jensen P10R alnico 10″ speaker. The Fender Harvard also has the distinction of being the only Tweed era Fender model name to not make the transition to subsequent brown and blackface amp series. The amplifier delivers on the promise of sweet tube saturation, and the extremely dynamic, harmonic rich tones which are a hallmark of the narrow panel tweed Fender amps.

Outfitted with simple volume and tone controls, it’s easy to dial in everything from glassy cleans to tube overdrive with the twist of a knob. The cabinet size (noticeably bigger than the Champ and Princeton) adds a certain low end fullness to the tone as well, with great bloom to the notes and a richness that’s particularly evident when played with a humbucker-equipped guitar.

The 5F10 circuit is extremely clean and factory stock. Only the death cap has been removed.  The famed yellow Astron tone caps in the preamp, and stock CTS pots, carbon comp resistors, and cloth wiring as well. The original transformers are intact with a Triad power transformer and Schumacher output.

The faceplate is extremely clean, with shiny chrome and all of the original white silkscreened lettering intact. The original Jensen P10R speaker has just been reconed by the best and skilled amp tech in Denmark ( Lars Vad ). Still has minty teal frame and stock foil label. The original lacquered tweed is intact and lightly ambered. New 3-prong cord is installed so it can run perfectly.

Just, a well kept example, this amp shows only a few moderate scuffs and minor wear on the corners and along the edges of the tweed pattern.

  • Chart Date: JM – October 1960.
  • Speaker code: 220945 – 45th Week Of 1959.

To keep it as original as possible you need a stepdown transformer. We have these in stock and can be purchased through Guitar Hunter. https://guitarhunter.dk/product/toroidy-ats300va-stepdown-converter-230-110v/
