Sam Hutton worked for Fender building amplifiers for 35 years. He also made these clocks that looked like the face of a Fender amp. This one has a tweed cover and "Champ" badge. The clock is in excellent working and cosmetic condition, there is one small scuff/scrape on the grill cloth on the lower left that is surface only, it is not a tear. This clock has the typical stamp that Hutton used on the back of his clocks that reads "Created & Produced by Sam Hutton, Fullerton, CA" and "Vintage Fender Amplifier Cabinet Restoration". But it also has a personal inscription on the back written in sharpie marker that reads "To Art, From Sam, 4-30-93" The "Art" in the inscription is a reference to Art Dudley, who was a guitar player and author who was often published in Listener and Stereophile (where he was an associate editor) among other audiophile publications, and guitar magazines such as Fretboard Journal. This clock hung in Art's home workshop until his passing. Very cool addition to your music room.
