Were at the time of sale. All original packing must be included. Up for Sale is a.Model 6G3 Brownface Pre CBS! You are looking at a 1963 Fender Deluxe 6G3 Brownface Combo Amp. This is the "Holy Grail" of Vintage Fender Amplifiers. This 1x12 combo has best tone of any amp I have ever played through. Billy Gibbons, Ted Nugent and many other notable players have used the Brownface Deluxe for recording as well as performing. In 1961, The Fender Deluxe Amp was radically redesigned. This was the Brownface Deluxe also known as model 6G3. The amplifiers control panel was no longer on the top and it now faced front and came with a dark brown face-plate. In some cases this was almost black. The amplifiers cabinet was now covered in a sandy coloured brown vinyl material called Tolex.
This amplifiers speaker baffle was covered in a woven material we commonly call grill cloth. In this case it was of a wheat coloured design. The handle was made of leather with metal glides.
The amp unit was secured to the top of the amp with two chrome metal straps. This was the first Deluxe amp to have two distinct channels. One was labeled normal and the second labeled bright. On the earliest models the bright channel was on the left, but this was soon reversed.
Each channel had two inputs and a single volume and a single tone knob. This was also the first amp in the Deluxe series to have a built-in special effect, which was labeled vibrato, However it was actually a tremolo circuit and it was powered by one half of a 12AX7 tube which worked as an oscillator. The vibrato circuit was controlled by the familiar speed and intensity potentiometers. The circuitry in this model was completely redesigned so the output was bumped up to 22 watts.
The amps speaker was 12 with an 8 ohm load, but was now made by Oxford instead of Jensen. This version of the Deluxe Amp remained in the line up through 1963. The Tone is Lush, Smoother, Chewier, Brownier, Snarlier.
If you are after that warm tube tone this is the right choice. Everbody like the Deluxe the best. It gives you all the tone you need in a small compact package.
It breaks up at about 5. Ideal for either recording or playing live.This Deluxe is a One Owner Amp. It is almost all original. The transformer was replaced back in 1966. It is a Fender transformer. The only things we replaced were the upper back panel, 2 knobs, and a 3-prong grounded cord.
Our Amp tech went through this amp and gave it a major service. He cleaned all pots and jacks, Re-Biased the tubes and replaced one diode. Player as well as a Collector. The value of these vintage Fender Amps has been steadily going up.
This is an amp you can really use. It is not museum quality but it is in good condition. Especially considering this is a 54 year old vintage amp. Not too many of these amps out there especially in this condition. The Brownface era is when Fender first started to build a modern style amp.
