Fender Champ-Amp 5F1 Tube Amplifier (1959)Just Arrived!
Fender Champ-Amp 5F1 Model Tube Amplifier (1959), made in Fullerton, California, serial # C-09964, tweed fabric covering finish. Item # 8040
Height is 12 in. (30.5 cm.), 13 1/2 in. (34.3 cm.) width, and 8 in. (20.3 cm.) deep. A lovely little unit, with some wear to the tweed but overall still sharp looking. The 1959 Champ is often considered one of the greatest small amps ever, and this one certainly bears that out. The speaker is original, the tubes period, even the leather handle is still intact…there has been quite a bit of cap work (the originals are included) and the result is a fantastic sound. These late-'50's Champs have a bit more muscle and headroom than the earlier versions retaining the singing distortion these are loved for when cranked. Excellent - Condition.
