DESCRIPTION
First off this amp sounds incredible ! Nice headroom with killer break up and amazing tremolo ! Here we have a restored 1961 Fender Twin. The amp was restored in 2002 including a new cabinet ( the original was cut down to make it just a head) , hardware and faceplate from Larry Rodgers and a nice pair of 50-watt alnico Weber 12A150's speakers.The chassis was brought back to spec by a great tech in Ottawa named Doug Brash who, sadly, has since passed away. The electrolytic caps, the presence pot, screen/grid resistors and a few out-of-spec resistors were replaced during this restoration. The original yellow Astron caps were left in place, all transformers are original. The footswitch, logo, handle and legs are repros. The chassis in this 6G8-A has a serial number in the low 160's . The 6G8's bore chassis serial numbers that were independent from those of the other brownface models . Blonde Twins have the lowest production volumes among all Fender amps, here is your chance to get a killer sounding restored Twin for less then half the going price ! It's a win win !
