A vintage 1966 Fender Bassman 2x12 piggyback stack in great cosmetic condition. This one is quite clean with only a few cosmetic flaws--and it's all original where it counts. Blackface Bassmans have a well-deserved reputation as true workhorse amps. They have a big, neutral clean tone that make them a perfect choice for players that use a lot of pedals. This amp has been fully serviced with the replacement of all electrolytic capacitors and a new set of Groove Tubes 6L6-GE power tubes. It is fully functional and sounds awesome.

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.
