This is it, folks. The amp that arguably started it all - an excellent condition, incredibly vibey 1959 Fender Bassman!
It didn't take long for savvy players back in the 50s to realize this amp, originally intended for bass players as the name implies, sounded mighty fine with those new fangled electric guitars. The rest is history (vintage amp buffs will know the first branded Marshall amp took its inspiration from this amp's design. What more do you need to know?).
Tones? Amazing. There's just something about these 50s Fender amps that can't be denied. Forgive the cliches, but it's rich, 3-dimensional, loud-but-not-insanely-loud, gorgeous break-up, nuanced...This amp is as much of an instrument as the guitar you're plugging into it (have a listen to it over at the Video tab).
Condition: Just evaluated by Stan Day and working as it should. Replacement tubes. Given the age of the amp, certain components may have been serviced out of necessity, but everything appears to be all-original. The tweed covering is in excellent condition with expected signs of use given the amp's age, though nothing we'd call serious or concerning.
Don't miss your shot to own a piece of electric guitar history!
**Please note: Vintage amps of this age need regular servicing to perform at their best (much like a vintage guitar). We, as do many, feel the extra effort is worth the returns. All vintage amps are sold strictly "as-is". Please feel free to ask any and all questions or for a shipping quote, we're happy to help!
