Fender 68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb Silver Panel, 2018


Here is a great condition Fender 68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb, delivering 35 watts through a pair of 10 inch Celestion Ten 30 speakers.

Introduced in 2014 and now discontinued, this amp updates the classic silver panel models with reverb applied to both channels and a Bassman-style tone stack on the Custom channel. This amp is loud enough for most venues and is even more versatile than the original!

Built during May 2018 in Ensenada Mexico, this example is in great, clean condition with the original top feature card included. It works well, and at 35 watts can easily keep up in a performance situation.

The original two-button footswitch is included, but the cover is not; as the amp is out of production, Fender doesn’t list replacements. However, third party cover makers do.

Here is the builder on the Fender 68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb:

“1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender, but a look that was brand new. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum “drip edge” grille cloth trim, the Vibrolux Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the compact, gig-ready amp of choice for pros and amateurs everywhere. The 1968 Vibrolux Reverb featured a unique 2×10 speaker configuration, which delivered snappy twang and big tube tone, while still incorporating world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Vibrolux Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender tone.

The ’68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender’s late-’60s silver panel amps. In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the “custom” channel has a modified Bassman® tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals. The amp also features quicker gain onset and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity. While fitting a sweet spot between the Deluxe Reverb and Twin Reverb, in respect to power and size, the ’68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb’s dual 10″ Celestion® TEN 30 configuration and 35 watts of all-tube power deliver distinctive rock ‘n’ roll flavor.”
