The Fender amplifiers with Reverb have been an industry standard for electric guitar tone since their introduction in 1964. The Deluxe Reverb-Amp is the most popular of the line with its manageable ~22 watt output and 12″ speaker. The Reverb and Tremolo that this amp features has become the benchmark by which many other amp builders have based their circuit and tonal aspirations.
The “Silverface” Fender Deluxe Reverb amps from 1968 – 1979 represent an awesome value in vintage combos, with classic-sounding reverb and tremolo and enough power for small- to medium-sized clubs. While Silverface amps get a lot of undeserved flack for not having “the tone” of the pre-CBS amps, the Silverface Deluxe Reverbs seem to be immune to that down-talk and their value has steadily risen over the years. A few cosmetic changes and circuit revisions were spread throughout this era, such as the dropping of the “drip edge” grill after ’68 – ’69 and the addition of a pull-pot volume boost in ’78.
Recently given a full rundown in house and is in perfect working order! Cosmetically there are some signs of wear such as small tears and marks on the tolex, however this amp is in excellent condition when you consider its age.
