Well, Fender may be far from what you’d call a small-time player, but in spite of their stature (not to mention the general hoopla around NAMM,) I had to dig around quite a bit to discover this beauty––the ’57 Amp.
According to their website the ’57 Amp––a 12-watt, all tube guitar amplifier based on Fender’s 5E3 circuit circa the late 1950s––will be produced in a Limited Edition run of just 300 units for the entire world.
The decidedly art deco amplifier will sport a single 12“ Celestion Alnico Blue speaker housed in a maple cabinet, with hand-wired circuitry, a pair of GT6V6 output tubes, a 5Y3 rectifier tube, dual 12AX7s in the pre-amp, Mic & Instrument channels (with individual volume & Hi/Lo inputs,) an aluminum ”speed boat“ handle, ”Roll-Easy“ Telecaster knobs, and black ”piano lacquer“ finish.
The 57′ Amp will ship with a padded cover, cleaning kit, certificate of authenticity and more…
