The black vinyl tolex exterior is in extremely excellent condition. The silver/grey grill cloth is not faded, and still looks very crisp and attractive. The appearance and structural integrity is very fine although there is one small tear in the bottom left corner. The control panel is also crisp and clean with some few small blemishes. All of the hardware is in very excellent condition, the chassis is quite clean, with no evidence of damage, let alone signs of oxidation, or indications of leaky/exploded capacitors.
The Princeton Reverb was one of Fender’s smaller more practical combo amps offered during the 1960’s. The Fender Princeton Reverb utilizes; (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 6V6’s, 12AX7’s, 12AT7, and 7025 are all original.
