YES! 100% ALL ORIGINAL, DOWN TO EVERY LAST TUBE! SUPER FINE ALL ORIGINAL CONDITION!
The black vinyl tolex exterior is in extremely excellent condition. The silver/grey grill cloth has faded slightly, yet still looks very crisp and attractive. The appearance and structural integrity is very fine although there are a few small tears that are hardly noticeable. The control panel is also crisp and clean with a few small blemishes evident around the input jacks. All of the hardware is in very excellent condition, the chassis shows no evidence of damage or indications of leaky/exploded capacitors, though does exhibit some oxidation on the bottom of the chassis which is expected since it spent most of it’s life next to the ocean. The oxidation does not affect the performance of the amp in any way.
The Princeton Reverb was one of Fender’s smaller more practical combo amps offered during the 1960’s. The Fender Princeton Reverb utilizes; (1) GZ34 (2) 6V6 (2) 12AX7 (1) 12AT7 and (1) 7025 tubes through 1×10″ Jensen Special Design Speaker. Since this particular example has been very well-preserved, it sounds as good as it looks. The GZ34, 6V6’s, 12AX7’s, 12AT7, and 7025 are all original. The power cable has been upgraded to a modern three prong cable, and the original cable is included in the auction.
This Fender Princeton Reverb is an excellent example, works perfectly, sounds fantastic and includes the original Fender cover.
