Fender 68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb Amp, 2014

Brand:

Based on the classic Vibrolux and Bassman amps, this Fender 68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb Amp dates to 2014 and is in very good, clean condition.

In regular production from 2014 and recently discontinued, this amp delivers 35 watts through 2×10 inch Celestion 1030 speakers and is loud enough for many venues. This version of the Vibrolux has two channels, with the ‘Vintage’ channel reproducing the original sound and the ‘Custom’ channel using the Bassman tone circuit. This amp is even more versatile than the original!

This example dates to June of 2014, the first year of production, and is in very good, clean and undamaged condition and includes the Reverb/ Tremolo footswitch and vinyl slip cover.

Here’s the builder on the Fender 68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb:

“The guitarist with an eye and ear for late-’60s Fender silver panel style will love the Fender 68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb, which honors the classic look and great sound of that era’s amps. The moderately powered Vibrolux Reverb received a fresh new face in 1968—a silver-and-turquoise front panel with aluminum grille cloth trim, with tone, reverb and tremolo that was still pure Fender. That’s all available in the 2×10″ ’68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb, too, which also has modified all-tube circuitry, vintage channel for traditional silver face tone, custom channel with Bassman® tone stack, and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity and quicker gain onset.”

Other materials from Fender describe the amp this way:

“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 Twin Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the backline amp of choice for pros and amateurs everywhere. Clear, deep and powerful, it produced big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Twin Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.

The 68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fenders l Silverface amps. In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the custom channel has a modifi 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. The 68 Custom Vibrolux Reverbs dual 10 Celestion TEN 30 speakers also deliver a more distinctively rock n roll flavour.”
