Excellent Condition (A few cigarette burns, re-coned speakers, single 1/4" jack for all speakers added, repro handle, recapped, bias pot added, 3-prong power cord, a few very minor grille tears, light wear to tweed covering)
The Tweed Fender Bassman is one of the greatest achievements in guitar history and has been heralded by some as the greatest guitar amp of all time. This is the narrow panel version which was produced from 1954 -1960. The model designation of 5F6A was introduced in 1958 and offers a new presence control circuit and a GZ34 rectifier tube while retaining the 3 knob tone stack and "long tail" phase inverter which noticeably increases headroom. This one has been slightly modded with the addition of a bias pot, a 3-prong a/c cord and a single 1/4" jack for all speakers,. The speakers are original but have been re-coned and the caps have been replaced.
