Fender Princeton 6G2 Brownface Amp, 1962

Brand:

This Fender Princeton 6G2 Brownface Amp is a real treat. In good, complete and original condition, this spent most of its life paired with a lap steel.

The Princeton was one of Fender’s earliest models, introduced in 1948 and in regular production until 1979. It started with 4.5 watt output into an 8 inch speaker, but by 1961 was 12 watts through a 10 inch and had a lush Tremolo circuit. At this point, the 6G2 circuit uses a pair of 6V6 power tubes, two 12AT7 preamp tubes and one 5Y3 rectifier tube.

These were intended as an ‘advanced’ student amplifier, but over time they found their way into studios, where the low power and great tone fit perfectly. Princetons can be found on many classic recordings. At one point, Princetons were a target for modification, and one owned by Country Joe McDonald was merged with a Bassman and became the prototype for the first Boogie amps.

This example of 1962 Fender Princeton 6G2 production is in great shape and sounds wonderful. The original 10-inch Oxford speaker is in good shape. It also carries its original brown, two-conductor AC cord. For safety considerations, we do suggest having a competent amp technician upgrade the cord to a 3-prong type.
