The Fender Excelsior is an interpretation of a "What would have been" tube amplifier from the golden age of AM radio. Part of their 2010s "Pawn Shop" series of amps, the Excelsior features a distinct cosmetic package tailored after an amp that may have been in a guitar or thrift store "back in the day" as the kids say. It features a single channel with controls for volume and a two-way "Bright/Dark" tone switch. A single knob tremolo with sinewave pulse is on board, with control only for speed. The tremolo is engaged by the speed knob as would a click-pot on/off on a radio. The Excelsior has vintage clean tone with plenty of volume for the gig - and it breaks up quite pleasantly, too! Famously this amp has been seen as a mainstay in the rig of Mike Campbell of the Heartbreakers' and Fleetwood Mac.
This amp is in excellent condition with little to no signs of use beyond general. There is a small tear in the tolex in the front on the top right corner.
