Real Vintage Fender amps. Please post here without fear.

Here is a new amp in the herd this year. It is a '61 (D 004XX) Brownface Deluxe that's guts appear to be original. Seems to be fitting in perfectly.

I post this without ANY fear at all. I've only lost a couple of vintage amps to the pool.

'76 Dual Showman Reverb, exact same circuit as Twin Reverb. Found it in a store a few years ago. Very clean, still has original RCA tubes, a little old lady only played it on sundays.

this little one made a good trip last month from USA to France : '65 Vibro Champ
still has Fender Electric Instruments on the panel and the tube chart, but also have a logo on the grill and a Fender Musical Instrument badged speaker.
it's in great shape, i think nobody ever opened it since it left Fullerton ... i just replaced the power cord, two electrolytic caps and 3 resistors. it runs smoothly and sounds great, bright and punchy.

Got my 1960 re-tweeded bassman today! Not as sexy as my tremolux but it's one the best sounding amps I've ever heard. I'll try to get a picture up in a day or two. :dude::hank
