The venerable Brownface Fender 6G3 Deluxe is lauded for its combination of Tweed era rawness and midrange with a bit of the early Blackface punch and response.

What To Know

The venerable "Brownface Era" Fender Deluxe is lauded for its combination of Tweed era rawness and midrange with a bit of the early Blackface punch and response. Often considered by many as a "mini Marshall", the 6G3 Deluxe boasts a healthy 20 watts via a pair of 6V6 output tubes with a 12AX7 preamp front end. Normal and Bright channels feature master volume and tone controls, with the bias modulation tremolo circuit tied to the Bright channel (speed and depth controls).

This particular example is in great cosmetic condition, with a recently replaced grill cloth. It's had its original power transformer replaced with the correct spec ClassicTone PT, but the original 1963 output transformer remains. The amp is loaded with a new Eminence Legend 1258 ceramic speaker, which is an excellent fit for the circuit.
