More details up soon.
The FENDER TREMOLUX amplifier was first made in 1955 as a 15 watt amp then increased to 35 watts by the end of production in 1966
This amp is a very original “Blackface”. The circuit code, build date, “Fender Electrical Instrument Co” notation ,all point to a completely original 1964 amplifier.
In 1965 CBS bought Fender and a name change to Fender Musical Instruments. Subsequently post 1965 instruments and amplifiers have lesser appeal to collectors. The value for collectors and players of these amps is very much determined by the originality, condition, being pre CBS takeover (1965) and the circuit.
This amp meets all the criteria. It is genuine ‘Blackface” and has the desirable AB763 circuit.
Genuine original Fender product pre 1966 are highly collectable.
