For rock, country or blues players that want a moderately powered amp they can crank up on the gig or in the studio. The fat, snappy guitar tones heard on many of our favorite recordings, from Memphis to Abbey Road, were made using the Deluxe.  The "new" '65 Deluxe Reverb is living proof of the quality and longevity of Fender amp designs. Over the years, many musicians have found the versatile Deluxe Reverb a perfect match for surf, rock, blues, soul, country and every music style in between.

Featuring Reverb and Vibrato, this two-channel amp has been used on thousands of recordings and countless live performance since 1963 when the first version appeared on the music scene.  The '65 Deluxe Reverb is a faithful reproduction of an original 1965 Deluxe Reverb model AB 763. Every effort has been made to keep the circuitry exactly like the original. For improved reliability and manufacturing efficiency, a printed circuit board for the components is used in place of the original phenolic parts panel. The power and output transformers used in the 22-watt '65 Deluxe Reverb are built to the original specifications and although some components used in this re-issue amplifier are different in size and shape from the earlier version, the component values are identical.

The speaker is a duplicate of the original Jensen 12-inch "Specially Designed For Fender" speaker used during the 1960's.  The '65 Deluxe Reverb is the ultimate "club amp" for blues, rock or country, or for studio recording applications. Big enough to cut through the mix, but small enough to turn up and wail. The '65 Deluxe features 22-watts, one 12" special design speaker, 2 channels (normal, vibrato), all-tube circuitry, tube vibrato, tube spring reverb, Black-face cosmetics, and a 2-button footswitch for reverb & vibrato.

    Comments about Fender Vintage Reissue '65 Deluxe Reverb 1x12" Tube Guitar Combo Amplifier:

    I am a huge fan of the Fender Deluxe Reverb. The Deluxe Reverb has been around forever and has been time tested to be one of the most rugged amps out on the road. I personally own a Deluxe Reverb and use it almost exclusively for clean tones and large open stacked effects. a Deluxe Reverb is definitely a staple in any amp collection.

      This is a reissue of one of my favorite guitar amps of all time. I have yet to discover another model that offers the warmth and versatility of the Fender Deluxe Reverb. There is a reason professionals and rock/blues legends refer to this amp for their recording tones and performances. A big sound from a relatively small amp. I wholeheartedly recommend this model for any aspiring guitarist or professional player.

        Sometimes there's beauty in simplicity. I believe this model has survived the ages due to it's absolute ease of use, offering a very distinct and yet versatile range of tones, all with minimal adjustment required.. If you've never played one, put it at the top of your list. This fender classic has a legendary clean tone that is unmatched by much else. Rich. Fat. Warm. Powerful. A true joy to play through.

          This amp is a spot on reissue of a '65 Deluxe, it has beautiful warmth, sparkling cleans, and is very loud. If you're looking for that classic, iconic Fender clean tone, look no further. I would recommend this amplifier for anyone who is looking for a clean tone in studio, or who needs to move some air in a medium size venue.

            This is a reissue of a classic that will never go out of style. The Fender Deluxe Reverb has earned a legendary reputation of providing one of the most sought after clean tones in guitar history. The warm, rich tone that comes from this amp sounds great live as well as in recordings. The pure, clean tone allows pedals to be heard true without any unwanted coloration. This amp is compact enough that it will travel well to any practice or gig while still providing ample power for just about any situation. The built in reverb is incredible and lush. The Fender Deluxe Reverb is one of the most trustworthy tube amplifiers you can buy.

              If you are looking for that classic Fender tone then look no further. This 65 reissue sounds amazing. Great as an everyday amp and ideal for recording. Reverb and Vibrato are easily obtained with the included foot switch. This is a real hands-on product review from David @ Sam Ash Ontario.

                This 22 watt fender amp packs a big punch. The 1/12 inch Jensen speaker is a perfect match for this amp. This amp is one of the cleanest sounding amps on the market. With the built in reverb, any of the electric guitars you have in your arsenal, their sound will sparkle through this amp. Better yet this amp is very portable. Recording with it is a dream come true.

                  Probably the most popular tube amp ever made. These reissues are identical in sound to the vintage ones that go for double the price. I sold my original 1966 as the reissue had a better sound. If your looking for a warm clean sound with excellent reverb and tremolo this is the one.

                    The Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb is an amp I had the luxury of using at a live show last month that was back lined by a local production company . Myself , coming from the world of half stacks and sheer sonic assault I was a little leary when they said I would be plugged into the 65 Deluxe.
                    Well I must say the tone is produced from my guitar was beyond exceptional on all levels from the stage and I had to actually turn it down a bit to hear my vocals over the main stage monitors. The sound on mild drive is very biting and bluesy which made me feel like I had gotten my first amp as a kid again , The clean channel gave my guitars sparkling clean highs and the drive stage The Jensen speaker is a 12 inch cone which packs a really powerful punch when turned up.
                    The amp gives an amazing display of tone from crystal clean to tube warmth . The new design features a pair of matched 6V6 Groove tubes and four 12ax7 preamp tubes. I think in one sentence its beauty is in its simplicity and that it just delivers the goods in ALL situations .

                      Fender tube amps. You just can't beat em' ....You just can't. I mostly blues and rock, and this is THE sound! It also works great surf and country or any type of music that requires a cranked up clean tone, with just enough twang on it. One of the best things about this amp though is that it's not a back breaker like most old tube amps. This is an excellent amp for almost any kind of player at any level.
