About This Listing

Most have heard the old gear stories of "the one that got away". When it comes to great guitar amps, the Fender Bassman combos of the 1950’s commonly pop up. These amps are truly something to behold and deserve all the lore. I bought this one at the Dallas guitar show a few years back and used it in my home studio to record a few tracks. I’m an adult going back to school for a doctoral degree now…so certain sacrifices must be made.

This example is in overall great shape, displaying the common cosmetic vibe that most original tweeds from this era do. The power transformer and choke have been replaced with a mercury unit, while the output is original. Two input jacks and three caps have been replaced (original parts are in a bag in the back of the amp). Two of the speakers are original and two are new. The pictures were taken by Alberto Telo in Austin, who also did all of the work and servicing. This amp sounds absolutely fantastic, functions perfectly without issue, and will make an outstanding addition to any collection, studio or backline. Please email or call with any questions. Amp is currently located in Austin, TX. Reasonable offers considered.
