Fender Princeton Reverb Tube Amplifier (1967)
Fender Princeton Reverb Model Tube Amplifier (1967), made in Fullerton, California, serial # A-18639, black tolex covering finish.
Height is 16 in. (40.6 cm.), 20 in. (50.8 cm.) width, and 9 1/4 in. (23.5 cm.) deep.
This is a very clean amp overall, apart from one small hole in the grillcloth it shows only some light wear. The tube chart is stamped QF indicating assembly in June of 1967, just as the summer of love was kicking off! The only major alteration is a Weber Alnico speaker; apart from a grounded 3-prong plug and some typical cap work, it remains otherwise original. These 1967 Fender amps still were built as Leo and his crew intended; after 1968 the CBS regime began to make production changes that moved the designs away from the "classic" blackface sound. This is a great sounding Princeton, currently one of the most popular of all vintage amps for stage and recording use. The somewhat sturdier Weber speaker gives it more crankage leeway than the original '60s Oxfords or "Special Design" (i.e. budget) Jensens usually found in these. A neat example overall. Excellent - Condition.
