Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb

1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender but with a brand new silver-and-turqoise front panel and classy aluminum "drip edge" grille cloth trim look. The small, light and moderately powered amp produced big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Deluxe Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound and a perfect amp for on stage and in the studio.

The '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender's late-'60s "silverface" amps. In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the "custom" channel has a modified Bassman tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals. The amp also features quicker gain onset and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity. The '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb's single 12" Celestion G12V-70 speaker also delivers a more distinctively rock 'n' roll flavor.
