If you have one enjoy it, they are ok amps when they work!
The list of artists who've used a Fender guitar amp live or on record is enormous.
10/24/2008Note: it mentions that hot-rod amps built 2002 and later no longer have a date stamp in the amp.
It probably also says "Made in Mexico" somewhere in or on the amp, which also indicates it is one of the newer re-issue amps.
It’s unknown if the tweed covering was a mistake (“Oops, I thought this was a 4x10 Bassman cabinet that I was covering”) or intentional, perhaps as a special order.
Their designs served as cornerstones; starting points for generations of amp builders such as Marshall, Mesa Boogie & Dumble to name just a few.A 1957 tweed Vibrolux was reported with a tube chart printed with circuit “5E3” (tweed Deluxe) instead of the correct 5F11 (see photo).Clearly Fender wasn’t afraid to use incorrect parts when they were in a bind. The 5G12 Concert is the earliest version from very late 1959 and early 1960 so the existence of a tweed example, while extremely rare, is certainly plausible since Fender was making lots of tweed amps during the same time period.Since several models can share one chassis type (for example, the early brown 5G7 Bandmaster, 5G5 Pro and 5G12 Concert), this kind of interpretation is inaccurate.Instead, there were approximately 2000 of these chasses produced, which then ended up as one of the three models in question.
