1958 Fender Champ Amp

Serial # C06611. Tube chart and speaker dated February 1958 (HB). All components date-coded late 1957. With its original hang-tag and cover, this factory stock Tweed 5F1 Fender Champ is a pretty special little amp. It's an 8" speaker version, with a bigger voice than the earlier 6" models. No changed circuitry but for a newer rectifier tube, this Champ does what it's supposed to do, and does it well. Lots of life, volume and sparkle. And it's seriously cooler than any newer replica! Light corner wear on the tweed, otherwise in excellent condition.
