Here we have an excellent representation of a Fender Pro-Amp dating back to November of 1955. This particular amplifier features the more desirable narrow panel that was discontinued in 1960 and is still equipped with it's original 15" Alnico 5 Jensen Speaker.
This amplifier features 2 channels, a microphone and instrument channel. A very popular feature among most guitar players due to the ability of linking both channels together to deliver a more desirable over driven tone that these old "tweed" amps are known for. This amplifier at low volumes delivers those beautiful angelic like cleans that are very pedal friendly but link both channels together and crank the volume knobs up and you can achieve those crisp bitey overdrive tones that are venue friendly and make this amp a recording must have.
To any player or collector this amp is an easy to make favorite. Do not miss out!
