A vintage 1953 Fender Bassman amp. This "wide panel" tweed Bassman features the original 5B6 circuit that launced the Bassman line. This is a player-grade amp--with new tweed and a non-original power transformer. That said, it's original where it counts. The original cabinet, original Triad output transformer and period-correct Jensen P15N combine for a tone that is indistinguishable from a collector-grade amp--minus the collector-grade price tag, of course. It features a deep, woody tone that lends itself well to single-note leads--great for blues guitar or harp. This amplifier has been cleaned and serviced. It is fully functional and sound 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.
