JAW DROPPING nr MINT original 1967 blackface Fender Vibrolux Reverb amp combo NR

INCREDIBLE condition one of THE BEST out there No Resv!

I ship worldwide - please see 'P&P and Payments' section for all shipping rates. Currency of this and all my auctions is GBP £ Sterling you cannot bid in any other currency!!!!

This is a lovely amp and one of my all time favourites - This is an auction for a STUNNING sounding AND looking original early 1967 Fender Vibrolux Reverb guitar amplifier it is an amazing sounding guitar amp and has the classic Fender Blackface sound and I think it this is probably one of the best out there. It even includes the original 1967 cover

This amazing amp is also in amazing cosmetic condition with just a few dings and marks here and there but no real rips or scuffs in the all original Tolex and no rips in the original wheat coloured grille. Even the front panel is still quite gleaming and in exceptional condition for an amp this old. There are some marks on the back of the speakers but that really is about the main marks you can see on this amazing amp - please see photos.

Amp sounds great with classic Fender superb blackface sound and out of all the blackface Fenders this is probably my favourite. I am sure the new owner will not be disappointed with the sound of this and when you play through it you can see why these amps are so sought after...

The all important speakers, transformers and chokes are original and all date to late 1966 or early 1967. Chassis has a date stamp of early 1967 and tube chart has a date code of April 1967. Power tubes and rectifier are original RCA and in excellent shape. Preamp tubes are various including some RCA and Groove Tubes. Most of the caps look original, including the main smoothing caps which have no problems at all. It is a very quiet and hum free amp.

It all works great, trem is fantastic, reverb is lush and it is very quiet with beautiful full classic blackface sound that breaks up evenly and predictably. Power cord may have been replaced I am not sure but it is still 2 prong and should be changed to 3 prong for safer operation. Amp runs on 115V AC only so you will need a step down transformer to use it is 230v Europe.

There is no footswitch included, it is just the amp plus original cover just as you see pictured.

Please have a good look at the 20+ high resolution photos I have posted to fully appreciate the superb condition this amp is in

I will be sad to see this go, I doubt if I will come across a nicer looking Vibrolux and such a nice sounding one for a long time.

This is a genuine NO RESERVE auction with a 1p start so will sell here on ebay for a bargain price!

I will post for the rates in the 'P&P and Payments' section, or you are more than welcome to collect. Please note that some areas of Europe are more expensive (e.g. Greece) so treat the rates as a guide. If sold overseas, buyers are responsible for any customs or taxes in their own country.

Cash on collection from Cheltenham is welcome and no problem!

Please see my other auctions for loads more interesting stuff (as usual)...

Questions and answers about this item

Q: Hi, Are you sure the power transformer is original? It appears to be a 1968 or possibly 78 tranny judging by the 606-8 code. It is partially obscured but is clearly an 8, not a 6 or 7 which it should be for a 67 amp....
A: Hi, yes it looks like you are right. The AC transformer is a 1968, it probably failed during the 1 year warranty period and was replaced at the factory. I have seen a few like this, amps made in 1967 with 1968 power... Continue reading
