Fender Pro Amp TV Front 5B5 Circuit Tweed, 1952

Fender Pro Amp TV Front 5B5 Circuit Tweed, 1952

The Fender Pro Amp, first named Professional from 1946 to 1948, was aimed at performing guitar players and vocalists and put out a whopping 15 watts. From 1946 to mid 1953, it used a tweed-covered ‘TV Front’ cabinet as seen here.   The Pro amp was discontinued in 1965 and became the Pro Reverb amp, following the pattern Fender was using with other non-reverb amps.  Here we’re looking at a Fender Pro Amp dating to 1952 with the 5B5 circuit.
