Up for sale, a 1961 Fender Super in excellent condition and in perfect working order. This Brownface Pre-CBS tube amp was produced late in '61 with a freshly serviced circuit and a pair of stock teal frame Jensen P10Q speakers with original cones.

A direct descendant of the Tweed era Super amp, this early Brownface example sports the same transformers and speakers as its close predecessor, delivering hi-fi clarity and sparkling, robust clean tones. Turning the amp up past 5 on the volume dial yields thick, chewy overdrive with great touch-sensitive responsiveness and EQ controls that have an incredibly wide sweep. And of course this is the most compact Brownface-era amp to feature the "Harmonic Vibrato" circuit. A true pitch shifting vibrato (not the tremolo found on most Fender amps), the Harmonic Vibrato sound has a thick, Leslie-esque throb and warble, with a three-dimensional quality and depth that is perfectly suited to the speaker compliment and cabinet size. Whether you want a slow, undulating swampy sound or faster, pulsating vibrato, this Super delivers the goods.

The circuit has just been thoroughly tested by our techs here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar and almost all of the original blue Ajax capacitors in the preamp are intact. Aside from replacing the two bias caps as well as the smaller bypass caps with modern equivalents, the preamp is untouched. The original CTS pots are all intact too. The power amp has been recapped with new F&T caps to guarantee reliable, trouble-free use for years to come. While the output transformer is original and dates to '61, the power transformer is a genuine vintage Fender replacement from 1967. The tubes consist of a matched pair of Tung Sold 5881s (6L6GCs) along with a host of newer preamp tubes. The speakers are the original pair of Jensen P10Qs. Both speakers have clean frames with only light speckles of rust, original bell covers, and clean Jensen labels.

The original rough brown tolex is intact and the original baffle board has been professionally regrilled with oxblood grillcloth. As the photos show, the tolex and grill are particularly clean, and both back panels are modern factory-spec replacements. All hardware is stock and accounted for including the brown plastic "dogbone" handle, corners, sphinx glides (feet), and flat "Fender" logo on the amp's face.

This Super is freshly tested and serviced, and ready for stage and studio use.
