1953 Fender Tweed Deluxe 5B3 Wide Panel Amp
The Fender Tweed Deluxe is one of Fender's true iconic amps. They are on countless records and many famous players have turned to Deluxe for their rich yet volume friendly sound.
The early years of the Deluxe models were some really good years. The main characteristic of these amp is great overdrive and compression. They can have really nice cleans too but much of the desire for these amp comes from player desiring dynamic and harmonically rich overdrive.
This one has the sweetest vintage Fender Tweed Octal-tube tone there is! Crystal clear cleans with rings and bells, super nice breakup at halfway the volume into a roaring Neil Young beast of a tone!! It's fat, crunchy, and just plain cool...
It has been checked and serviced recently so it's ready to rock for another 60+ years!
