Here is a vintage 1966 Fender Twin Reverb- Amp AB763 electric guitar amplifier. This particular example, serial number A06143, is in extremely excellent 100% all original near mint condition and includes the original Victoria vinyl cover, the original dual-function VIB/REV footswitch, the original instruction manual and envelope, the original hang tag, and the original 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: A06143
Tube Chart Stamp: PK (November 1966)

This â66 Fender Twin Reverb features: (4) original RCA 6L6 power tubes, (3) 7025, (2) 12AT7, and (1) 12AX7 original RCA tubes through the original matching 2 x 12â³ 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 is the finest, most intact specimen we have ever seen. The grill cloth is particularly clean, without stains, smoke damage, fading, etc. The black tolex is in well-preserved, extremely excellent, original condition. 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 RCA power tubes to the fantastic sounding Gold & Brown label Jensen speakers and the transformers. Even the original 2-prong power cable is in excellent shape. Not only is this example in near perfect original condition, but it includes all of the original rare paperwork and tags. The only cosmetic issue is a significant dent on the back of the amp, photographed several times via larger than actual size close-ups. Otherwise the amp is perfect.
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. It has the highly coveted Gold & Brown label Jensens, and is electronically identical to a pre-CBS example.
