Fender Princeton Tube Guitar Amplifier (1950)
Fender Princeton Model Tube Guitar Amplifier (1950), made in Fullerton, California, serial # 1610, tweed fabric covering finish. Item # 7901
Height is 11 3/4 in. (29.8 cm.), 13 1/4 in. (33.7 cm.) width, and 7 1/2 in. (19 cm.) in depth at deepest point.
A lovely amp, relatively clean externally with some standard maintenance; an added 3 prong cord, a proper cap job but no modification to the circuits…original speaker and original (or at least period) tubes. The tweed (early style non-lacquered) is relatively well preserved, and as usual there is a repro handle installed. The name "Bob Maxwell" is stencilled in small letters on the top edge of the upper backplate. These early Princetons make for a really fine sounding small amp, one of Leo Fender's early crowning glories! Excellent Condition.
