1954 Fender Deluxe Wide Panel Amp in Lacquered Tweed [Very Good Vintage Condition]

An authentic, rare 1954 Fender Deluxe Wide Panel Amp in its original Lacquered Tweed finish in "very good" condition. An authentic relic from the golden age of amplifiers, this unit exemplifies that famously celebrated and classic, focused midrange tone the Tweed series is known for.


- Year: 1954

- Model: Deluxe Amp

- Output: Powerful 10 watts

- Speaker: 12", upgraded with a vintage 1970's Eminence

- Tweed: The lacquered tweed is in an impressive state for its age, showcasing the meticulous care it received over the years.

- Transformer: A notable change is the replacement of the original output transformer with a Midwest transformer, either from 1957 or 1967.


While the amp has seen some modifications over the years, its essence remains in the iconic lacquered tweed covering. Beneath the aluminum shield, believed to be a later addition, the original asbestos material is intact.


The original leather handle has been thoughtfully replaced with an authentic Fender Leather Handle, ensuring it maintains its vintage charm.

Recent Servicing Insights:

The amp has been treated with great reverence, preserving its original essence:

- It predominantly aligns with the 5C3 schematic.

- The amplifier has been re-capped, along with a few resistors. 

- A safety upgrade of a 3-prong cord has been installed. A 'thin' gauge power cord was used to avoid irreversible modifications, and a tube mounting bolt was utilized for the new safety ground.

- All pots have been cleaned, ensuring smooth operation and main filter caps were tested to be in fine working order.

Seize this unique opportunity to own a piece of musical heritage, resonating with the tones of legends who played through these iconic amplifiers.
