1959 Fender Pro Amp

1959 Fender Pro Amp

Here we have a vintage 1959 Fender Pro amp. This amp sounds awesome! Like only a real vintage 50’s Fender can. As you can see, the caps have been replaced, as have most of the pots, some resistors and at least 1 switch. It is possible that the circuit board was replaced along with the caps but I honestly don’t know. The tube chart dates the amp to 1959 but the Jensen P15N speaker appears to be from 1957. Everything else appears original, including the transformers. I have removed the chassis and taken photos so you can see the work that was done. Basically this amp was rebuilt to rock. I would have no qualms dragging it to the studio or taking it on the road. It sounds fantastic and has no issues. Tubes are Vintage RCA, Bell and Howell and Tung-Sol. The original tweed is obviously beat up, stained, scuffed, dinged, ripped and has cigarette burns but it’s original and looks pretty bad ass. Original grill cloth has some rips but, like the tweed, looks pretty cool and does the job just fine. Original handle is in good shape. Did I mention how great this amp sounds? Killer Fender tweed tone! It’s perfect for the studio or playing clubs or just keep it at home and bug your neighbors. I wish I could keep it. The one odd thing is that during the rebuild a grounded plug was not added so it still has the original 2 prong.
