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 have had silverface deluxe reverbs before and they all seem to be not as reliable as i needed them to be so when i saw this reissue i was intrigued. I plugged it in and compared it to my original one and was impressed. it sounded just as good if not better and worked seamlessly. the sound was crisp and the reverb wet. I very soon after that retired my original and will forever more be useing this reissue to record and do some live shows.

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

        This is a great little tube amp! One cool thing about that amp is that both channels have reverb and trem so now both channels are in parallel so you can use a patch cable and bridge the two channels together to get a different sound out of it! Looks and sounds great, the silverface is a nice touch. Both channels are great!

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

          IMHO this amp is a great improvement over the 65 DRRI for people who are more on the rock side of things. Both channels have great headroom for pedal use ( that is a main concern for me). Custom channel starts to break up around 5-6 with an american standard Tele and vintage channel breaks up around 4-5 just like the 65 DRRI. The tone controls are very usable, the Celestion speaker is a great improvement over the stock speaker in the 65 DRRI! Also now that both channels are in phase you can bridge the two channels together with a patch cable (like the old marshall amps) to get a even fuller sound! All in all you can't go wrong with this amp!
