This is a vintage 1953 Fender Deluxe “5C3″ electric guitar amplifier. This particular wide panel tweed example, serial number 0900, sounds absolutely incredible and is in near MINT 100% all original condition and includes the original canvas cover. Considered one of the most iconic vintage guitar amplifiers ever made, the Tweed Deluxe is an incredible-sounding amp famous for producing Neil Young’s singing sustain and for showcasing Don Felder’s (Eagles) musical solos. Possibly the pinnacle of perfect studio tone, this subtly worn example is completely original and quite attractive. Interestingly, a serious contingency of tone enthusiasts actually prefer the wide panel 5C3 Deluxe to the later 4-input narrow panel 5E3.
