1968 Fender Vibro-Sonic amp in Sacramento for $700

This is considered to be THE Pedal Steel Guitar amp - just check out that JBL-D130!   Louder than a rainy Sunday at Chuck-e-Cheese and more headroom than you will ever be able to use. 

Doesn't have the drip edge since he replaced the grill butsure does look nice and clean. Oh and SKip Simmons is known to be a great amp tech so you can be sure it is in excellent shape.

I wouldn't plan on the seller being able to ship this amp anywhere - probably just for local folks.

Vintage1968 Vibro-Sonic Reverb Amp. Dating is based on Fender.com method of dating the engraving on the power transformer, (transformer code EIA 606-740). This amp is really LOUD and CLEAN! It uses the same exact circuit as the Twin Reverb. Uses four (4) 6L6 power tubes but is rated hotter than the Twin at 135 Watts RMS! Amp has the original JBL D-130 15" speaker. Grille was recently replaced so you won't see the metal edge that came on the grilles of amps from this era. This amp was just given a clean bill of health by amp doctor Skip Simmons. On new casters. Also has new Fender cover. Wonderful full tone- specially voiced for steel guitar players, but plenty of highs for screamin' lead players too. This amp may be vintage, but it needs to be working in a band. Don't spend $1500 for a re-issue '65 Twin, check this amp out. It's more amp and a much better value. And did I mention that it is LOUD!

Location: Sacramento

This would make a great Surf amp!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
