This is a vintage 1965 Fender Twin Reverb- Amp “AB763” electric guitar amplifier. This particular example, serial number A03611, is in extremely excellent, near mint, 100% all original condition and includes the original Victoria vinyl protective cover, the original dual-function VIB/REV footswitch, and the original owner’s manual and schematic sheet. Appropriately considered the irrefutable king of clean, the Blackface Twin Reverb has always been synonymous with an overabundance of clear headroom with highly musical qualities. The same attributes that make the Twin Reverb notably perfect for surf-inspired pristine guitar tone, are the same that render it appropriate for use with pedal steel, effects pedals, and any other application whereby the most authentic signal path is desired. Impressively not too harsh, nor hi-fi in character, the Twin Reverb is loud, dynamic, clean, robust, and perhaps offers the best examples of both the Reverb and Vibrato effects.
Serial Number: A03611
Tube Chart Stamp: OJ (October 1965)

This ’65 Fender Twin Reverb utilizes: (4) 6L6, (3) 7025, (2) 12AT7, and (1) 12AX7 original tubes through the original matching 2 x 12″ Brown and Gold label Jensen Special Design “C12N” speakers.
As can clearly be seen in the photos to the right of this text column, this fine specimen is amongst the nicest we have ever seen. The grill cloth is particularly clean, without stains, smoke damage, fading, etc. The black tolex is in well-preserved, very clean, original condition. There is some very minimal scuffing along the backside of the bottom, but it is otherwise void of cigarette burns, scratches, discoloration, etc. The original control panel looks pristine, and the corresponding hardware appears as if it could be from a reissue, it is that clean. The original chrome tilt-back legs are amazingly sheen, and exhibit absolutely no oxidation whatsoever.
Once again, as mentioned, this example is in 100% all original condition: from the original electrolytic capacitors and the matched quartet of Sylvania power tubes to the fantastic sounding Gold (and Brown) label Jensen speakers and the transformers. The amp is highly efficient, and sounds fantastic: great for all guitar types with all possible pickup variations, this Twin Reverb will translate the true sound of your guitar better than any other!
