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.

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

      I just helped my friend buy one of these after spending 3 hours deciding between 4 amps. If you want a clean tone with clarity and warmth, look no further. Great value, and you can never go wrong with a quality Fender product.

        This is a great unit! Very good for the price. These amps are awesome and have a few upgrades from the originals. Both channels have reverb and trem, and two different voicings. I would recommend to a friend for sure!

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

          Pure Fender sound. This is a fantastic "vintage" amp, the look and sound of the late '60s in a modern amp. A great option for almost any setting with plenty of volume to fill most rooms. 22 watts of power and a 12" Celestion speaker for crunchy rock and roll tones.

          I am a Sam Ash staff reviewer from Cleveland, Ohio.

            Fender has been making quality amplifiers for decades and this particular amp is no exception. Based off the late 60's "silverface" amps. This amp has 4 1/4 inch inputs, 2 of which are custom and the other to are vintage. This amp has one 12" Celestion G12V-70 speaker, effects including reverb and vibrato, and 2 6V6 power tubes! At only 42 pounds this little amp packs a punch and is perfect for amateur musicians and professionals alike. Check one out at Sam Ash today!

                  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. This is a real hands on product review by EpR@ Sam Ash Music Ontario.
