Fender Deluxe Model 5B3 Tube Amplifier (1951)Just Arrived!
Fender Deluxe Model 5B3 Model Tube Amplifier (1951), made in Fullerton, California, serial # 5139, tweed fabric covering finish. Item # 7757
Height is 16 1/4 in. (41.3 cm.), 18 in. (45.7 cm.) width, and 7 5/8 in. (19.4 cm.) deep. This old Deluxe shows its age a bit externally but remains more original than many, with some general wear to the old-style un-lacquered tweed covering, corrosion to the faceplate and a replacement handle. Internally the amp remains largely original and still sounds great. Originally wired by Lily (whose masking tale tag is still present inside the chassis) this amp has received new filter caps, a modern 3-prong cord and one new volume pot (all removed original parts are still included included). The original Jensen speaker dates to the 40th week of 1951. A nice example of this all-time classic gigging and recording amp. Overall Very Good + Condition.
