Product Description

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 Deluxe Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the ideal recording and performing amp. Small, light and moderately powered, it produced big tube tone, with worldclass Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Deluxe Reverb has been the go to amp for classic Fender sound.The '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender's late '60s "silverface" 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. The '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb's single 12" Celestion G12V 70 speaker also delivers a more distinctively rock 'n' roll flavor.

There is no substitute for my point to point hand wired silverface with rca blackplates. Let me think....... nope no substitute. While this amp is not that,my old classic is not this. Its a modern amp. Its also replaceable, well ,because its in production. It has the best vibrato of any reissue imho,and the deluxe has a nice bark.you might want the twin for loud rock band stuff but the deluxe is great for my trio involving upright bass and cocktail drum set. The princeton has a charm as well and should not be left out of the decision process. It takes pedals very well,has several sweet spot eq settings and allows great guitars to be heard and felt in playing. I did notice an "improvement "in my ears when slapping in a bugle boy. This tells me it reacts to different applications and with dilligence this platform will deliver. I guess when you try an amp after sweating the guitar choice ,I want something that well ,just amplifies it. Sometimes I want the cloak of reverb and trem to hide those weaknesses in playing ,this does that nicely too. I enjoy the looks of it too. It passed my wifes"living room"test so that's where its living for now. Unsoliceted comment from her on sound was "bell like". I should have gotten her something better,thanks hon.

I tried many amps at guitar center and sam ash and I decided to go with a vox ac15c1. I had to return 2 in under two weeks and was really disappointed. I had problems with the speakers on both and I was really surprised. I liked the vox ac15 sound and warmth and that's what made me buy it. I own a 60th anniversary fender american strat and I liked what I heard with the vox but it is a very picky amp on the pickups and switches. It had two sweet spots and that was the middle pickup and mid/bot pickup. I felt it got really bassy and would drown out the highs on the neck pickup. I couldn't use the neck or neck/mid pickup because they sounded like there was too much bass. I knew it was a picky amp by many peoples reviews but many people loved them. I liked it overall but I felt something was missing. I felt it did not suit my guitar that well. I liked the reverb a little bit but it dampened the sound and added a little bass and the tremolo was not good at all. It really dampened the sound. Overall it just wasn't the amp for me. I know it's a good amp though. So after tryin the vox and eventually deciding it wasn't for me. I searched for something else. I needed an amp that could drive but also have amazing cleans. I played a lot from blackstar, hughes and ketner, Marshall, vox, orange and fender. It came down to a handwired vox ac15, fender 65 reissue or the 68 fender custom deluxe. I played them all but narrowed it down between the 65 deluxe reverb and the 68 custom deluxe silverface. I liked the cleans and reverb on the 65 but I felt it didn't have the drive the 68 had. I then played the 68 and just fell in love with it. It felt like the perfect amp for blues, jazz, funk, gospel, rock ect.... It can get very close to the cleans on the 65 DR but it can drive harder then the 65.Read more ›

#1 issue is theuality is suspect on these. These are Mexico while the '65 is made in USA, for what's it's worth. The '65 DRRI are known to be solid and reliable, without all the noise/hissing issues. I do like the sound of the '68 but much like the Vibrolux they made a few years ago, there's no/less negative feedback and some of the techs say that's what makes these amp hiss and get noisy. Lots of people are saying they keep sending them back because of issues. I like the '65 DRRI has less gain at lower volumes, but not as ratty in top end, some of that could be the Celestion in the '68.. The '65 seems to get a bit fuller/creamier. Read a few others who loved this amp on it's own but with a band, pushed, it thinned out a little. There's many clips on YT and when they crank it, cam hear a bit of rasp in the top end. and when they compare the '65 cranked, it's a little smoother. That's all subjective of course. Both are great Fendery tones.

Verified Purchase
Love the design features of this new Fender Amp. Sadly, had to return two of them, both with similar, serious problems. Did some online research and discovered that there are serious issues with this new model. Many people are having to do multiple returns to finally get one that works. This is clearly a quality control / manufacturing problem with Fender and not any fault of Amazon's or other retailers. So, I ended up having to order a different model (one with a good dependability record) and will wait a year or so to see if Fender gets it's act together before trying one of these again. Too bad because I really wanted one.
