Deluxe reverb dating
Output on the amp was diminished to 20 watts and a solid-state rectifier was used. Gain, master volume, and presence controls were added.And the two channels were made switchable as opposed to the individual inputs on the Deluxe Reverb.This gave birth to the "silverface" era, and the Deluxe Reverb followed suit in 1968.The circuit design remained largely unchanged through the ensuing years, and the control face was changed back to a blackface in 1980. The Deluxe Reverb II was introduced that same year.The Fender Deluxe Reverb is a guitar amplifier made by the Fender Electric Instrument Company and its successors.It was first introduced in 1963 by incorporating an onboard spring reverb tank to the newly redesigned Fender Deluxe amplifier.
Amps from the blackface era, which have a black faceplate, were manufactured from 1963 to 1967.I have a silverface deluxe reverb I'm trying to find out what year it is.it has a stamped in chassie A972286 and under that is a printed # 9715 it's a killer amp and VERY LOUD it been tweeked by jay montrose he was danny gattons guitar tech How Do I Know What Year My Fender Twin Reverb Is?This had never been done in the past, as Fender had only built the Deluxe and its derivatives as combo amps (that is to say an amp with the speaker built in).Some things are very obvious such as non-original or reconed speakers, non-original transformers, replaced pots, re-tweed, re-tolex, re-grill, etc.
