The Fender Piggyback series Bassman has been coveted amongst bass players and guitarists since it's introduction in 1961. This 1969 Bassman features the AB165 circuit that was introduced in 1965 right when CBS purchased Fender and the iconic drip edge border that was later discontinued in early 1969. The normal channel offers that glassy clean we love from Fender and as you push the amp past 6 the signal starts to topple over on itself and deliver that brash medium gain Fenders are known for. The Bass Instrument channel is warm and smooth with not much treble.
This Fender 1969 Bassman amplifier head is in very good condition. It features replacement filter and electrolytic capacitors and an IEC power cable mod. There are tears in the Tolex. The amp features non-original chassis screws and washers. It is missing Piggyback attachments.
