This pre-CBS Fender Princeton is the epitome of a great practice/recording amp: simple, small and sweet.

The 6G2 Princeton utilizes: (1) 5Y3, (2) 6V6, (1) 7025, and (1) 12AX7 tubes through an original 1 x 10â³ CTS speaker.
As briefly mentioned, this amp is great for in-home practice, recording and light rehearsals. It is definitely loud and efficient with surprisingly prominent head-room, but it is low wattage enough to enjoy at high volume levels. The vibrato is fantastic and seems to be more dynamic than your typical Fender amp with vibrato: as the sine wave is more pronounced than usual which creates a very bold and striking effect.
Other than the replaced power chord, the amp is in pristine all original condition with no flaws whatsoever. The brown tolex and âno-logoâ grill are in mint condition. Even the brown face plate only exhibits a couple small hair-like scratches that can only be seen through a macro lens of a camera.
Super clean, super cute, and just all-around super, this is a great vintage amp for not much money that represents a lot of value, AND includes the original Victoria Luggage Co Cover!
