Fender '68 Custom Princeton Reverb: A Classic Reimagined

Vintage Charm with Modern Versatility

The Fender '68 Custom Princeton Reverb offers guitarists the quintessential late-60s Fender silver-face style, perfect for those who cherish the classic aesthetics and exceptional sound of that era's amplifiers. Light, compact, and moderately powered, the Princeton Reverb has been a recording and gigging staple, beloved for its clear, rich tones and on-stage versatility. This model continues that legacy with an updated silver-and-turquoise front panel and aluminum grille cloth trim, maintaining the soulful tone, lush reverb, and smooth tremolo that Fender enthusiasts adore.

Enhanced Sound and Performance

This amp is not just about looks; it features modified Princeton Reverb all-tube circuitry designed for greater tonal flexibility, making it ideal for players who like to experiment with pedals. The modified tone circuit allows for richer soundscapes, while the reduced negative feedback offers enhanced touch sensitivity and a quicker onset of overdrive, allowing you to dive into a wider range of sounds—from pristine cleans to gritty overdrive.

Detailed Craftsmanship and Quality

Every component of the '68 Custom Princeton Reverb speaks to Fender's commitment to quality:

  • Power: 12 watts, perfect for studio sessions and small venues.
  • Speaker: Equipped with a 10" Celestion Ten 30 speaker, it delivers a balance of muscular lows, laidback midrange, and silky highs.
  • Circuitry: Hand-wired tube sockets and custom-made Schumacher transformers ensure reliability and provide an authentic response.
  • Reverb and Tremolo: Features Fender's renowned tube-driven spring reverb and tremolo, offering lush landscapes and pulsating effects that define the Fender sound.
