The first Fender Deluxe Reverb was first introduced in 1963 by including a spring reverb tank in the cabinet. This 1966 Deluxe Reverb is the AB763 circuit that was offered at the time. This amplifier was designed to push twenty-two watts through a 1x12" Fender Special Design speaker with two channels (Normal & Vibrato). It features the iconic Black Tolex with "Black Panel" face plate, Black/Chrome skirted control knobs, 3D Fender logo, two-button footswitch for Reverb/Vibrato and a modern amplifier cover for protection.
This 1966 Fender Deluxe Reverb is in very good condition. The Black Tolex is in solid shape with one slight tear on the bottom right. The original grill cloth is in great shape and has aged with a nice gold tint. The original handle is intact and the chrome covers show a nice patina. The Black Panel control plate is very clean with minimal scratches. The normal channel side has a small paint flake next to the treble knob. The Black/Chrome plated skirted knobs are very clean with no wear. The 3D Fender logo is clean and shows some patina. The Fender Special Design Speaker is in great shape and has been removed to preserve its originality. A 12" Webber Ferromax speaker has been installed for player use. The Fender tube chart is intact and remains unharmed. The Filter capacitors have been replaced with modern parts and a few filter capacitors have also been replaced. The Reverb/Tremolo footswitch is fully functional and includes its original cable. The footswitch has a few dings and scratches but the stickers are still in solid shape and has aged to a nice yellow tint.
