One of the rarest, most collectable Fender amps of all time: The Blonde/Oxblood Twin-Amp. 6 x 7025 (12AX7) preamp tubes, 4 x 6L6 power tubes and 2 x 12" Jensen P12N speakers for 85-100 watts of the best blues tone any amp of any era has to offer. Only 500 of these were ever made between 1960 and 1963. This one is number 144 which puts it at the end of 1960. Clean to half way, she introduces harmonic distortion and compression all the way to 10 where it lives up to it's position alongside the Champ and '59 Bassman as the most desirable amp on the planet. Infinately better than the later Blonde Twins with 'Wheat' grillecloth and the newer metal reinforced handle.
Finished unmarked Blonde Tolex and matching unmarked Oxblood grille-cloth, this amp is in museum condition. Comes with original tremelo footswitch.
