Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender but a look that was brand new. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum drip edge grille cloth trim, the Deluxe Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the ideal recording and performing amp. Small, light and moderately powered, it 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.

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 Reverbs single 12 Celestion G12V-70 speaker also delivers a more distinctively rock n roll flavor.
