The ’68 Custom Deluxe Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender’s late-’60s “silverface” amps.

1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender but a look that was brand new. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum “drip edge” grille cloth trim, the Deluxe Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the ideal recording and performing amp. Small, light and moderately powered, it produced big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Deluxe Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.

The ’68 Custom Deluxe Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender’s late-’60s “silverface” amps. In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the “custom” channel has a modified Bassman tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals. The amp also features quicker gain onset and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity. The ’68 Custom Deluxe Reverb’s single 12” Celestion G12V-70 speaker also delivers a more distinctively rock ‘n’ roll flavor.

            extremely warm sounds. You can go back and forth between great 1960's style tones and very warm jazz tones. This is a very loud amp for its size.

                  Sweet classic Fender sound. The 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb is the closest thing you can get to the real thing but it has some surprising flexibility with the custom modern features. Classic look and tone coming with legendary Fender Reverb and vibrato. Great amp for recording because it is lightweight and you get awesome tone without having to crank it too loud.

                    Comments about Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb Combo Guitar Amplifier:

                    The '68 Deluxe Reverb has all the great style from that year including the memorable silver piping and blue logo. This amp embodies the tone from that era while adding the Custom inputs that makes this almost like two amps in one. Another addition is the ability to use not only the great sounding reverb on both channels but also the vibrato tremolo effect as well. This amp is powerful enough to gig with, yet still relatively light so that it won't weigh you down. Recording with this amp in your home studio would also sound great.

                    The Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb Combo Guitar Amplifier is a great durable and versatile guitar amp! It is a 22 watts tube amp that will give you plenty of bite when you need it. You can choose a vast array of reverb sounds on this amp so you can dial in the exact sound you are looking for.

                    Fender has always been known for having amazing combo amps and collectors are always in search for vintage deluxe reverbs. Luckily for them Fender has put out a remake of one of their best amps ever. Great sound and very clear. Perfect for clean and slightly overdriven tones.

                        The 68 custom Deluxe Reverb is one of my favorite amps period.
                        Crank this amp and you a re greeted by some of the best true all tube overdrive that you can hear. Play it clean and you've got great chime and soul at any volume. A must have amp for the gigging musician. "This is a real hands on product review from Dominic @ Sam Ash Music"
