1966 Fender Princeton-Amp


In stock

The slightly more aggressive non-reverb version of Fender’s classic Princeton, 12 watts from a pair of 6V6s, tube rectifier, 1 channel, tremolo, and its factory-original 10″ Jensen loudspeaker dated to the 19th week of 1966, “Fender Princeton-Amp AA964” tube chart with “PJ” date code indicating October 1966 manufacture. This one has a changed power transformer – it’s a Fender but a little bigger and the chassis was slightly modified to accommodate it, but otherwise original. A little more tweedy in character than the more common reverb-equipped model (tweedy like a ’59 Deluxe, not tweedy like an interwar Oxford don), the Princeton-Amp from this period is a great studio or small club amplifier, rugged and reliable, terrific looks, very portable, and terrific tone. Handwired in Fullerton, California, USA.
