Thoroughly maintained, this Fender Super sounds every bit as good as vintage amp lore would suggest, and the original, aged tweed definitely looks the part too! The circuit has just been gone through by our techs here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, and the preamp boasts a couple original yellow Astron tone caps as well as a few blue Ajax caps (typically seen in Brownface/Blackface era Fenders). The amp has been fully recapped and the pots are a mix of mid-60s CTS and original Stackpole pots dating to 1957. The power transformer is a modern replacement, while the output transformer is a genuine open bell, black frame Schumacher transformer that dates to 1958.
While not original to this amp, this transformer is as virtually identical in every way and sounds like a genuine vintage component should. On the faceplate, the stock chicken head knobs are intact and a modest amount of the original white lettering is present as well. The faceplate does show wear and pitting, although it's been shined up and looks presentable.
The amp is fitted with a pair of modern Jensen P10R green frame speakers with proper bell covers, and these are soldered to the original wiring harness. The stock tube chart is present and quite clean, denoting the 5F4 circuit and also still featuring a lightly stamped "HC" date code which translates to March of 1958. The original lacquered tweed is intact and oh, if this amp could talk! A undisputed road warrior, this tweed is worn and ambered, but remarkably still present. The clean, original "Fender Super" badge is present on the face of the amp and the amp is fitted with a genuine'50s Fender leather handle.
Comparable only to the Bassman in terms of Fender's tweed dual 6L6 offerings, the Super is a standout favorite among collectors and players alike!
