The '68 Custom Princeton Reverb from Fender Amps new Vintage Modified Series is a 12 watt, all tube guitar combo amplifier with 1x 10” Celestion Ten 30 speaker! This is a new take on another classic Fender amp- The Blackface 65 Princeton Reissue. Since the ’68 Custom version has been upgraded with some modifications to the original vintage circuit, it complements the 1965 Blackface version nicely and has rightfully earned is “Custom” designation.
1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps. Their tone was still pure, classic Fender, but with a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum “drip edge” grille cloth trim, the Princeton Reverb received a fresh new look. It remains a perfect choice for recording and gigging - Small, light and moderately powered – All while retaining a big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Princeton Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.
The ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look and sound of Fender’s late-’60s “Silverface” amps, but a modified tone circuit makes the ’68 Custom a more versatile and flexible choice for today’s modern player. It takes pedals well and has reduced negative feedback for improved touch sensitivity and more overdrive. The ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb is also fitted with a single 10” Celestion TEN 30 speaker that delivers a distinctively rock ‘n’ roll flavor.
Unique features of the ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb- Modified Princeton Reverb circuit with all-tube circuitry, hand-wired tube sockets, custom-made Schumacher transformers (like the originals), genuine Fender tube-driven spring reverb, genuine Fender tube-driven tremolo (“vibrato”), 1968-style Silverface aluminum trim around silver-turquoise grille cloth.
