Here’s a vintage 1962 Fender Super -Amp “6G4″ electric guitar amplifier. This particular example, serial number 04183, is in good vintage condition, but since it has several modifications, would make for a perfect player’s piece! It sounds incredible, and will quickly become your go-to amp for plug-in-and-play action. It was recently serviced, and has less than an hour of play time since.
Serial Number: 04183
Transformer Codes: -606-2-03, 606-116, 606-125
Tube Chart Date: Unreadable
Speaker Date Code: 67-94330143 (Eminence)
The original brown vinyl tolex exterior is in good condition with no overly distracting flaws. The notorious bubbling toward the bottom, is a result of tolex glue drying over the years. The original Oxblood grillecloth is structurally intact, though does show evidence of minor fading and some fraying. The control panel exhibits even oxidation and patina across. All of the hardware is in overall nice condition, the chassis is quite clean.
Modifications and upgrades are as follows; the original dogbone handle was replaced with a reissue, the two back panels appear to be mojo replacements, and do not perfectly match the original tolex on the original cabinet. The Eminence speakers are ’90s replacements, and though they work fine, aren’t best suited for this amp. All of the electrolytics were inevitably replaced, and several (pictured below) original components not currently installed are included.
This ’62 Super utilizes; (1) GZ34, (2) 6L6 and (6) 7025 tubes through a 2 x 10” speakers.
It is a great sounding amp, and a completely underrated model. Brown Supers are extremely good, and certainly have a special appeal which seem to have transcended the Tweed varieties. It’s very loud, super efficient, featuring a transparent clean tone with personality and warmth. A perfect complement for either a single-coil Fender or a robust PAF-model Gibson, this is a surprisingly versatile amp.
