Fender Deluxe Tube Amplifier (1950)

Fender  Deluxe Tube Amplifier (1950)

Fender Deluxe Model Tube Amplifier (1950), made in Fullerton, California, serial # 2305, tweed fabric covering finish.
Height is 16 1/4 in. (41.3 cm.), 18 in. (45.7 cm.) width, and 7 1/2 in. (19 cm.) deep.

This very early TV-front Deluxe remains in far better condition than most, both externally and under the hood. The old-style tweed covering is very crisp and not "smoked" like most and shows only some light wear, mostly on the corners. There is some very minor corrosion to the faceplate, mostly near the fuse holder. The leather handle is a good quality repro. Internally the amp has a mix of period tubes and a well-done cap job with no major mods, just a 3-prong cord added.

This Deluxe was originally wired by Lupe (whose masking tape name tag is still present inside the chassis) with a visible pot date of the 11th week of 1950. The original Jensen speaker is date coded to the 26th week of 1950. The amp sounds great and runs very quietly with new filter caps. This is a lovely example of this all-time classic gigging and recording amp, one the nicer we have seen. Excellent + Condition.
