Fender Tweed Deluxe 5E3 15 Watt 1×12 Combo Amplifier Excellent Condition Vintage c. 1955
Out of stock
This tweed 5E3 Deluxe is a screaming blast from the past. Cosmetically it’s in nearly time-capsule grade condition; there’s a tiny bit of wear in the tweed around the corners on one side in particular, but aside from that the rest of amp is practically spotless. Straight out of 1955, it features 15 watts being driven through a set of JAN (Joint Army/Navy) Philips 6V6 power tubes, both original power transformers and a repro Jensen P12N. Tonally it leaves practically nothing to be desired; it’s very simplistic in it’s controls but delivers a wide range of tonal capabilities and plenty of volume on tap to keep up in a band setting. Complexity is for Mesa’s, this is a horse of a different color. It’s been lovingly taken care of over the years and has some non-original parts meant to preserve the overall originality of it; the original Jensen P12N has been swapped out for a reproduction version of the same speaker, the wiring harness has been upgraded to a heavy duty 12-gauge rig, and the original handle has been swapped for a newer, ultimately more stable leather handle of the same ilk. The original speaker, handle, and magnet cap for the current Jensen are included. It’s also been recapped and had a 3-prong power cable installed, both pertinent jobs to keep it running long term. For the right player, this is a lifetime amp perfect for recording, a growing collection, or for unparalleled live tone.
