Fender Princeton Reverb Model Tube Amplifier (1964), made in Fullerton, California, serial # A-00727, black tolex covering finish.

One of the nicer Blackface Princeton Reverb amplifiers we've had in some time. The tube chart code is indicated manufacture in December 1964, so it just squeaks in as Pre-CBS. The original speaker and reverb tank are intact and this amp sounds excellent -- lush and warm at lower volume and shading into a typically gritty overdrive when pushed.
 
Height is 16 in. (40.6 cm.), 20 in. (50.8 cm.) width, and 9 in. (22.9 cm.) deep.

This amp remains in good original condition with some typical work internally, including replaced resistors and capacitors and a new three-prong cord (for safety's sake!). The knobs appear to be a matched set of correct repros; we don't know what happened to the originals. The tubes are period and the original speaker intact (dated to the 29th week of 1964); the trem pedal is modern. There is some apparent paint spatter and light discoloration to the Tolex, but overall it has held up well for an amplifier well past its 50th year of service! Excellent - Condition.
