A vintage 1962 Fender Princeton 1x10 tube combo amp in very nice cosmetic condition. With a circuit and configuration that is nearly identical to the 5F11 Vibrolux the Brownface Princeton could be considered Fender's last tweed amp. It features a thick overdrive tone and a beautiful all-tube tremolo. The 12-watt output makes it perfect for recording studios and small stages. This amp has been serviced and tested. It is fully functional and sounds fantastic.

Why We Love Fender

It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
