An original vintage 1963 Fender Vibroverb tube combo amp in excellent condition. The first Fender amp to feature reverb, the brownface Vibroverb was produced for less than a year and is one of the most collectable vintage amplifiers. Fewer than 600 brown Vibroverbs were ever produced.
This amp was recently serviced. It has had most of the caps replaced and a grounded plug installed. The original plug will be included. It comes with the original brown footswitch and the very rare brown Oxford 10" speakers date code 465-311 (early 1963).
The front panel has some scratches by the Vibroverb logo. The tolex and grill are very clean. The tremolo is different than the later blackface circuit and has what I call the Lawrence Welk bubbly tone. The original reverb tank sounds great.
This is a truly special amplifier that will make the perfect centerpiece to any vintage amp collection. It has been cleaned and serviced. It is fully functional and sounds absolutely fantastic.
This is available for local pickup in Broomfield, CO. I am selling "as is" if shipped due the inherent risks of shipping a vintage tube amp. It will be well packed.
