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.

I'm retired from all forms of work, including playing in bands.If you don't think playing music is work, God bless you. So here is the verdict on the Custom Fender Reverb. It is the best amp I've ever owned. No noise, dead quite. No reverb noise.Let's see what were some of the other complaints? Oh yeah, no popping when you cut the amp off. , Plenty of bass on both channels. Tone is wonderful. Now my Nashville tele and my es339 have come alive. It's just a bad to the bone amp. I"ve been fooling around with music most of my life and owned too many amps. Buy this one and take care of it and you should be happy for a long time.

Silverface style

Silverface sweetness! Nice amp for great Fender cleans with a little extra attitude from the custom channel. The amp takes pedals well as one may need them for higher gain at lower volumes. Great reverb and trem tome! The amp can scream when cranked and is perfect for recording or live band situations. Plus it looks great! Real hands on staff review from John @ Huntington

If you're looking for that clean tube fender tone, but you don't want to lug around a twin, the deluxe is a really good choice. This has been a handson review by Rock'n Dave Alford at Sam Ash, Canoga.

Nice modern tube amp

A reworking of the Fender Deluxe. Added bass in channel 1 with reverb and tremolo functions on both channels. Not an exact recreation but a good updated modern tube amp perfect for loud cleans that also handles pedals excellent. This is a real hands on product review from Eric @ Sam Ash Cincinnati.

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. Hands-on product review from Adam at Sam Ash in Cerritos, CA.

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!
