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 Princeton Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the perfect recording and gigging 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 Princeton Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.

The 68 Custom Princeton Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fenders late-60s silverface amps. In a special twist, a modified tone circuit gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals, and the amps reduced negative feedback gives greater touch sensitivity and quicker onset of overdrive. The 68 Custom Princeton Reverbs single 10 Celestion TEN 30 speaker also delivers a more distinctively rock n roll flavor.

Perfect for recording and home use. It is loud enough for small gigs. love the clean sounds. The Reverb and Tremelo are mint. This is one quiet amp for recording. A pleasure to play. The price is reasonable for what you get here. Just the perfect home amp.

Excellent amp, tone is way cool, the response to your attack is off the charts, this thing plays back at you, bounces like a percussive instrument, if you can drive it. Most "alive " thing I have ever got my hands on. :)

Just bought it, I no longer play proffessionally,down sized from a Black Face Deluxe and Custom Vibrolux in stereo. This is a great replacement! Excellent sensitivity to Volume and Tone Controls on the guitar and nice break up when you push it. The only thing that would make it better is if I had 2!!

Pure vintage fender but even better. Very clean vintage fender sound. Also sounds great at low volumes. Outdoes my original fender vintage amps. Great value.
