65" Fender Deluxe Reverb Review

deluxe reverb reissue

The '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb amp is so sweet I don't think I'm ever leaving the house. I thought my Fender Blues Deluxe sounded good until I plugged into this thing. In a word, this amp is "incredible". In my quest to be a better player, and find the right tone, I keep stumbling on these gems.

I Purchased this amp used for $700.00 from a guy with black teeth. I sold a few guitars in order to afford it, and man was it worth every penny. The sound is sharp, quick, bright, warm, just, as I said before, incredible. And at 22 watts, which doesn't sound like much, this cranks in my little music room.

I've been reading up on this and apparently this amp has been used to record more stuff than anything on the planet. I think I understand why, grab one of these, you'll be amazed.
