Here’s a vintage 1972 Fender Super Six Reverb electric guitar amplifier with the original cover and owner’s manual! This particular example, serial number A41905, is in nice condition and is completely 100% ORIGINAL down to every last RCA tube! This first-year production (with the Fender logo including tail, like that pictured in the original catalog) Super Six is THE Fender Super Six Reverb for the player who wants an excellent example that sounds great and works perfectly. Fender’s largest combo amp to date, this serious sound machine has the output of a Fender Twin Reverb with an impressive 6 x 10″ speaker configuration. Consequently, the cabinet is quite prodigious, towering at 40″ tall.
Serial Number: A41905
Speaker Date Code: 137 7220 (CTS, early-mid ’72)
Transformer Codes: -606-2-03, -606-2-06, –606205, –606208 (all trans. are early ’72)
The black vinyl tolex exterior is in very nice condition exhibiting only minor scuffs from typical use. The silver/blue stripe grill cloth is not faded, and only exhibits some minor fraying. The control panel is also crisp and clean with only some typical playing wear. 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. Since these are so large and cumbersome, generally they are more prone to damage and wear, and while this particular example is not perfect, it’s about as clean as they come.
The Fender Super Six Reverb was Fender’s largest combo amp and features; (4) 6L6 (2) 12AT7 (1) 12AX7 and (3) 7025 original RCA tubes through the original 6 x 10″ CTS speakers to produce a warm controllable sound. Since this particular example has been very well-preserved, it sounds as good as it looks. ALL of the tubes are original, however, since this amp was in a studio for many years, the electrolytic capacitors (those under the can only) were replaced. The originals are not included.
The amp works perfectly and sounds fantastic. All 6 CTS 10″ speakers feature original cones and do not exhibit speaker fatigue or voicecoil distortion. Both the reverb and vibrato work and sound exceptional. As mentioned, the amp comes with the original Fender amp cover and owner’s manual! The casters are also factory-installed originals.
