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.

        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"

          Fender has really developed an amazing amp with the '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb. Classic look with that appealing crisp and sparkling tone that Fender tube amps are so known for! The Custom and Vintage channels deliver wonderful options to color and shape your sound. The reverb setting and functionality are simple to use and sound incredible. Great light weight 1x12 amp for practice, studio or the next live show!

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

          looks great, sounds pretty good. silverface is a great look onstage . this is a pretty classic fender tube amp. if you dig fenders of the past this one will be dug too. a very pretty clean tone, but you do have to work it for a thick broken up sound. great for clean players, country and twang players. not for harder rock or tons of distortion (but that's what pedals are for ).

              I love the tone this amp brings to the table. Nothing but clean reverb with lots of beautiful highs and clean lows that bring out the best of any guitar. I have spent hours jamming to surf rock and other high reverb style techniques. Have fun sounding classic with this throwback amp!

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

                The '68 Reissue is an exceptional 22 Watt all tube amp. It's punchy when you need it to be and the Spring Reverb is killer! It can be dialed in from an ethereal landscape all the way to the most subtle of reverb sounds. And on top of the reverb, you have the Tremolo with a wide range of speeds and intensities. If you are looking for a luscious sounding, vintage clean-reverb sound, the '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb is the tube amp for you.

                  Fender tone amps are widely regarded for their tone and class. This amp brings out the best of the vintage classic rock sound and more modern crunchy tones. It also delivers a full sounding clean channel that Fender amps are known for. One cool feature is that the reverb an vibrato work on both inputs! This is a great sounding amp. This is a real hands on product review from Zak at Sam Ash.

                    The Custom tone is extremely warm great for jazz tones. The ability for great custom tones. The vintage is brighter more of an early 1950's style sound with awesome reverb tones. The ability to almost get lost in the reverb is inevitable.
