❌SOLD❌ Fender Princeton Reverb Silverface Amplifier, 1979


The Fender Princeton Reverb amp appeared in 1964 as an upgrade to the Princeton amp that had been evolving in Fender’s lineup since 1948. Topping out at 12 watts through a 10 inch speaker, the Princeton found itself on many stages and studios. Though fairly low powered, it was not exactly a student or practice amplifier. 

Here we’re looking at a Fender Princeton Reverb amp from the ‘Silverface’ era and in very clean condition.  The original speaker has been replaced with an Italian-made Jensen speaker.  Otherwise it appears original and in good working order.  

Here is the builder’s description of the new reissue Fender Reverb Silverface amps:

“The guitarist with an eye and ear for late-’60s Fender “silverface” style will love the ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb, which honors the classic look and great sound of that era’s amps. Small, light and moderately powered, longtime recording and gigging favorite the Princeton 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. The ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb also has modified tone circuitry for greater tonal flexibility with pedals and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity and quicker overdrive onset. “
