The Fender '57 Custom Deluxe Amp 12W 1x12 Guitar Combo summons the coveted tone of the legendary original in a package built for today's players. Built on a handwired dual-channel design, this tonal titan employs a 12" Eminence Special Design alnico speaker, a 12AY7 and 12AX7 hybrid tube preamp, and an original 5E3 circuit paired with Mercury Magnetics transformers. The end result is some of the most pristine cleans and organic tube snarl you can shake a stick at. Housed in a solid pine cabinet complete with a slick tweed covering era-correct chickenhead knobs, this combo is a premium avenue for authentic Fender tone.

About This Listing

Turns out they do make 'em like they used to. Case in point: Fender's handwired '57 Deluxe amp, with its lacquered tweed covering and that famed mellow tone.

'57 Custom Deluxe: Classic Rock's Signature Stage Amp Returns!
The Fender '57 Custom Deluxe hand-wired guitar combo amplifier is a modern reincarnation of Fender's classic Tweed Deluxe amplifier. Originally produced from 1948 through 1966 -- and highly sought-after ever since -- Fender's Tweed Deluxe amp became a favored stage amp for dozens of rock, blues, and country-western guitarists. True to the original, this '57 Custom Deluxe offers 12 watts of power through a single 12-inch speaker, enough power to cut through the mix of a full on-stage rock ensemble with tried-and-true vintage sound.

Classic Components
Sometimes less really is more, and the circuitry of the 1950s Fender Deluxe amp is the perfect example of beauty in simplicity. Faithful to its predecessor, the '57 Custom Deluxe offers a period-accurate reconstruction of the 5E3 amplification circuit used in the original narrow-panel Fender Tweed Deluxe amps. Offering two instrument and microphone channels, the '57 Custom Deluxe is equipped with dual preamp and dual power amp tubes and a shared rectifier tube, exactly like a real 1950s Fender Deluxe amp. From studio to stage, the '57 Custom Deluxe is the king of classic rock.
