Fender 600 Champ 5B1 Tube Guitar Amplifier, c. 1952

Fender  600 Champ 5B1 Tube Guitar Amplifier (1952)

Fender 600 Champ 5B1 Model Tube Guitar Amplifier (1952), made in Fullerton, California, serial # 4139, tweed fabric covering finish.

A very early tweed-covered "Champ" from soon after the model switched from a two-tone fabric cabinet to the familiar classic '50's look. This is the simplest Fender amp design, the chassis is literally a bent piece of metal with components directly wired in, three tubes, and one volume knob. The classic home and recording amp with a fabulous run-up to natural overdrive, no studio should be without one!
Height is 10 3/4 in. (27.3 cm.), 11 3/4 in. (29.8 cm.) width, and 7 1/4 in. (18.4 cm.) deep. Very clean with only an added 3 prong cord and some light waer to the tweed.. Excellent Condition.
