1952 Fender Super

The wide-panel super is many people's desert island amplifier. Although its younger narrow panel brother gets all the attention, the slightly earlier version has a brighter, edgier tone that country pickers sometimes kill for. This one is no exception - it's got just the right volume and breakup to make your Telecaster catch fire. Very professionally restored, this amp has been gorgeously re-tweeded, and serviced; the speakers are non-original '51 Jensens, and the handle, knobs, and jewel are replacements. The grill cloth appears to be original, as are the pots and transformers. It looks great, and sounds better.
