We present an original 1965 Fender Princeton Reverb amplifier blackface in very good condition. Made in Fullerton, California.
The blackface Fender Princeton Reverb is one of the crown jewels of mid-’60s combo amps. This classic amp added a tube-driven reverb circuit to the popular Princeton student combo, and has been among the most widely used recording amps since its introduction in 1964.
The original Fender Oxford speaker has been reconed, so its sounds perfect. All transformers are original include the reverb unit. The circuit itself is perfect and is serviced with some new capacitors, resistors and tubes so it can run perfectly. It’s also updated with a new three-pronged cable.
The amp is definitely great condition category as far as the cosmetics are concerned. The metal on the chassis and elsewhere still sports its original factory shine with very little patina. The grill cloth is exceptionally is also in great shape with some nicks and dings. The tolex is also in exceptionally fine condition with no significant wear and tear. Even comes complete with its original footswitch with newer cable.
The original tube chart is present as well and very clean with crisp corners and hand inked serial number.
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/
