Priced to sell at $1500 Aud.

Original USA edition with 117V Transformer. NOTE: A 240V external ‘Step Up’ transformer will be required to operate this amplifier in Australia

The stamp on tube chart looks like 31, this doesn’t clearly show what I need it to show unless it is a P = 1966 and possibly the letter I= Sept ??

Perfect working order.

This amp is an original “Blackface”.  “Fender Musical Instruments”

This is a consignment sale. I’m informed by the owner that it had been serviced from time to time over the years. The valves are all Russian tubes, 2 x Sovtek 5881WXT, 1 x Electro-Harmonix 12AT7 and 3 Sovtek 7025/12AX7’s

Tested and working well. Slight scratchiness in only the Volume pots but I will electrical spray clean/lube these in the near future. Shows age pitting of the blackface panel. Rust on the top metal strips and handle ends on the top of the amp. The amp head cabinet does still have the original chrome metal parts to secure it ‘piggyback’ to the correct speaker cabinet should you be fortunate in finding one to pair it up.

Overall, quite a decent vintage item with the original black tolex in great condition as is the grill cloth very good.
Priced to sell at $1500 Aud. This vintage fender amp is an affordable item for someone wanting to  collect rare USA Made vintage Fender amplifiers
