This is a vintage 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb -Amp electric guitar amplifier. This particular example, serial A09712, is in near mint 100% all original condition and includes the original Victoria vinyl protective cover, the original Fender owner’s manual, the original VIB/REV footswitch, and the original tolex hangtag!

This fine ’65 Fender Deluxe Reverb is in incredibly attractive 100% all original condition. The original grille cloth is perfectly intact, unfaded and clean. There are no rips, no snags, and no evidence of even the slightest fraying. The original vinyl tolex is in correspondingly perfect shape. The Blackface control panel is amongst the nicest I have documented, and all of the corresponding hardware is original. It displays more like a reissue than one of its vintage, and would nicely complement any existing collection or rig.
As stated, this amp is in near mint condition and 100% all original shape. The speaker, speaker cone, transformers, power cable, caps (even all electrolytics), and all of the tubes are original.
It sounds fantastic, and produces the uncanny beautiful bell-like Blackface tone for which Deluxe Reverbs have become the absolute epitome. When the Volume exceeds “6,” the amp nicely overdrives in a very smooth manner. Of course, the Reverb is endlessly mesmerizing, and you could relish in its geometrically perfect decay that is atypically smooth, yet organic. Nothing sounds like it.
The Fender Deluxe Reverb utilizes: (1) GZ34, (2) 6V6, (2) 12AT7, (3) 7025, and (1) 12AX7 original tubes through an original 1 x 12″ Oxford speaker.
