SOLD! - 1953 Fender 5C3 Tweed Deluxe Wide Panel
A good Tele sounds like a dream through this beauty...
The Deluxe is one of Fender's most iconic amps. Deluxes of all varieties can be heard on countless records and so 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 amps is great overdrive and compression. They can have really nice cleans too but most players get them for their dynamic and harmonically rich, fat overdrive.
This babe, wired in 1953 by Fender employee "Esper" (the legendary Art Esperanza), 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 it is very original down to the ASTRON capacitors! 1953 POTs, TRIAD 6452 and TS533 7124 transformers, chassis, cabinet, baffle, grillcloth etc. Speaker replaced for a 1959 Jensen P12RL Alnico 12inch Bell speaker.
If you want, we can have it serviced before sending it out keeping the originality intact as much as possible.
