Fender '65 Super Reverb FSR Guitar Amp - Great for Blues

Fender amplifiers, with their focus on dynamics and details, have undoubtedly dominated the electric guitar blues genre.

The limited edition Fender '65 Super Reverb is a perfect example of why Fender rules the blues demographic - featuring dynamic and powerful tones paired with elegant and impressive looks.

The '65 Super Reverb FSR is a modern take on the popular "Blackface" Super Reverb amps that were available from 1963-1968.

It is considered by many as a must-have for blues enthusiasts and makes for a great amp for Strat slingers. This amp faithfully reproduces the original Blackface's legendary shimmering tone, clarity and power.

The Super Reverb has one 5AR4 reactifier tube, four 12AX7, two 12AT7 preamp tubes and it sports two 6L6 output tubes. It is rated at 45 Watts, which is loud enough to fill stages, and makes it a great workhorse amp for medium to large sized venues.

Since this is a limited edition model, the amp comes with enhanced aesthetics thanks to its great looking Wine Red vinyl covering, matched with a Wheat grille cloth. It also features four 10" Celestion G10 speakers that give this amp a unique "English" tone twist.
