The Fender Twin Reverb from the 1970s Silverface era is about as iconic as a guitar amp can get – one that defines an entire generation of sound.
This is a nice, Fullerton made Twin Reverb from 1974. These amps are legendary for being very versatile, super clean and having plenty of headroom. That’s 100 watts of power at 8 ohms. They take pedals with ease, and the master volume allows for dialling in the right sound at the right volume.
This amp is a one-owner unit. It was bought brand new from a Sydney Fender retailer in early 1975. It has been regularly serviced, most recently by the late and well respected Sydney amp tech Vito Portelisi, who replaced a few capacitors, and revalved & biased it in 2012. It has hardly been used since.
These amps are totally bullet proof. This one has done plenty of gigs and never missed a beat. It has had no major repairs because none were needed. Just some servicing as per above.
Everything appears to be original from the outside, but we have not yet investigated inside. These amps were all hand wired, with point to point circuitry. No circuit boards here.
The two original Fender branded 12” speakers are intact and sounding great. The reverb is dripping with tone and depth, and the tremolo is unmistakeable classic Fender. And the original Fender footswitch is present and accounted for.
There are a few scuffs and marks here and there, but overall the original black tolex is in good shape. And remarkably, there are no holes or tears in the lovely front grill panel.
And this one has wheels !
A true Fender classic, kept in good condition, presenting as virtually original, with that big, clean, spacious sound that is synonymous with the Silverface era of Fender.
Comes with its own funky handmade vinyl cover.
