I present an original and wonderful sounding 1955 Fender Deluxe Tweed 5E3 Narrow Panel. This amplifier is favored among collectors and players. This is absolutely one of my favorite Fender circuits of all time. The 5E3 Deluxe is one of the more coveted Fender amps of the 50’s.
This amplifier unmistakable breakup we’ve all come to love from tweeds. Overall the circuit looks super nice and transformers are original.
The chassis is clean and also the chrome control plate. Original white lettering is intact, along with the stock chicken head knobs. The stock metal handle ends are intact along with a newer handle. The original alnico Jensen P12R 12″ speaker is reconed so it sounds perfect. The original lacquered tweed showing light ambering and some minor scuffs and other cosmetic wear. The original oxblood grillcloth is tight.
To keep it as original as possible, you need a desktop voltage converter, so it can run with 230volt without changing anything ( Only if you not live in USA)
The original tube chart is present as well and very clean with crisp corners and hand inked serial number.
The amp is full serviced and ready to be played
