Here’s a vintage 1967 Fender Twin Reverb- Amp AB763 electric guitar amplifier. This particular example, serial number A07255, is in extremely excellent, near mint, 100% all original condition, includes the original dual-function VIB/REV footswitch, as well as, the original schematic sheet. Appropriately considered the irrefutable king of clean, the Blackface Twin Reverb has always been synonymous with an abundance 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. Original Twin Reverbs in comparable condition are nearly impossible to find.
Serial Number: A07255
Tube Chart Stamp: QD (April 1967)
Speaker Codes: 220648 (Jensen C12PS)
Transformer Codes: -606-5-36, -606-6-40, –606645, 606707
This ’67 Fender Twin Reverb still retains all 10 original tubes, including: a matched quartet of RCA Blackplate 6L6 power tubes, (3) 7025 tubes (including 2 RCAs &1 Sylvania), (2) RCA 12AT7 tubes, and (1) General Electronic 12AX7 tube through the original matching 2 x 12″ Brown and Gold label Jensen Special Design “C12PS” 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 were light white speckles on the top of the cabinet only, and while barely visible, were a little tough to remove. Consequently, there are still some remaining. 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. The amp appears to have been serviced a short time after purchased, at some point in the early-’70s, and the power tubes were replaced with a set of Super 6’s. Both quartets are included. Otherwise, one internal cap was upgraded, but aside from that, it remains original and intact.
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!
