Style Name: 68Size: Princeton Reverb
First, the '68 Custom Princeton is neither like the '65 Princeton Reissue, nor is it a reissue of an actual '68 Princeton except in appearance. Rather, it's a '68 Princeton with modern modifications. A few of these mods include: the tone circuit is more like a Bassman, the amp breaks up early (after 4 on the Volume), the speaker is designed to help the early breakup, and the amp is very sensitive to picking dynamics. Anyone who is expecting a pristine clean tone above 3 or 4 on the Volume should look somewhere else entirely.

Having said that, this amp is designed for pristine cleans below 4, and then heavy breakup at 5 and above. The tone at low volumes is arguably like a Princeton, but bassier and slightly less "chimey". It still sparkles like a typical Princeton, but that ends after 4. Beyond 4 the amp begins to break up and gets very beefy in the lows and low-mids, some may even call it 'muddy". My first instinct was to roll off the bass to almost zero, which then made me want to roll the treble back to about 3. However, I soon realized that's the wrong approach. This amp needs the bass set to 5 or above and the treble at 7 or 8. With that EQ, plus Reverb set to 3 or less and Volume above 5, this amp starts to shake walls in small rooms. In fact, it made a piece of live rock near the top of my reef aquarium fall to the bottom of the tank from 5 feet away!

Reverb is nice and lush, though at 3 and above expect a long tail, especially at higher amp volumes. Tremolo is very useful and adds a very warm effect. If I am correct, reverb and tremolo are tube-based.

-The amp comes complete with a Fender embroidered dust cover and footswitch for Reverb and Tremolo.
-It sports Fender-branded Groove Tubes: two 6V6, three 12AX7, one AT7 and one 5AR4 (rectifier).

Style Name: 65Size: Princeton Reverb
I gave this amp 4 stars because its tone would easily rate 5 stars were it not for the cheap speaker plug that Fender uses.

For the first time since I have been using 1/4" plugs with instruments and amps, I got one that didn't stay seated. The wire that runs from the amp to the speaker has spades on the speaker end and a standard plug on the amp end. Well, not really standard because it is plastic and it does not seat in the jack (see the third picture on the Amazon product page; it shows the plastic plug. I have added a photo to show the plug that they should have provided.

I had all sorts of sound failures that ranged from very thin to no tone at all. After talking to Fender customer service, I was told that it sounded like bad tubes and since the tubes carried a 90 day warranty and I had owned the amp for 100 days or so, I was on my own for the tube diagnosis and replacement. After replacing the 12AT7 that didn't seem to glow much (as compared to the other tubes) there was no improvement. While putting the tube cover back on the last time, I lightly brushed my hand against the speaker plug and noticed that it moved into the jack as if it were pushing against a spring. On a lark, I pushed it in all the was and held it and suddenly the amp came to life. Lucky for me that I found the problem was a cheap and off spec plug rather than going through all the tubes trying to find a bad one. Like I said at the start, if the amp had a decent plug (Fender is apparently trying to save $.75 on each $1,295 MSRP amp), it would rate 5+ stars.

I called a local Fender service center (lucky for me that one of the best is only 40 miles away) and the owner said he was familiar with the problem and he would replace the plug with a real one (metal cap) under warranty.

Style Name: 65Size: Deluxe Reverb
******* SUMMARY ********
I have a lot of experience with various fender amps, and other amps (Orange, Mesa, Marshall, Vox, Roland, Crate, Line 6, others.) This is now Rev 6 of my review, and I've had the amp for more than a year, used it for band practices, and several gigs.

All in all, I love the amp, and just wish fender had included a dust cover, rubber feet, tilt back legs, a better footswitch -- and eliminated the "pop" when going into standby. You can probably negotiate 20% off the sticker price if you try locally or mail order. You can also save on the tax buying online, which is a significant savings on an item in this price range. I love amazon but that savings from negotiating makes some of the suggested upgrades easier to swallow like the cover, rubber feet, tilt-back legs, etc. Overall, I don't think you will be disappointed buying this amp, unless you are looking for a Rectifier or Marshall sound. It's not that, but with the right pedals in front, might be able to get close. (For instance a wampler triple wreck can get you there.) It is after all, a combo amp. And it's a pretty great combo amp in a lot of ways. It is also available as a head only, in black or blonde now. Another similar option is the '68 Deluxe Reverb which is claimed to take pedals better. But I don't find the '65 has any trouble with any of the 30 or so pedals I've tried with it.

******* PROS ********
- It's a good size for gigging...doesn't break your back, plenty loud for the stage, sounds good.
- As usual nothing beats fender cleans, and fenders cut great in the mix.
- Nice reverb, as usual from Fender. In fact...TONS of reverb...I don't run that beyond 2 except in very specialized situations!
