Each amp includes a Leather Collectors' Portfolio containing Certificate Of Authenticity, designer's notes, factory photos, and other surprises.

Guitarists who want a beautifully appointed tube amp for home or studio and tube amp enthusiasts who appreciate the unique qualities of hand wired, hand-built models will be absolutely thrilled with the Fender '57 Amp. American designed, American made!

Original late '50s hand-wired 12W 5E3 circuit is one of the most touch-sensitive, dynamic amp sounds of all time; manageable volume level for studio or small venue; natural compression adds sustain, even at clean settings.

Solid maple cabinet gives the tone a natural wood resonance with a strong fundamental.

Groove Tubes 12AX7 preamp tubes provides sensitive, higher-gain tone; user may install a 12AY7 for the original lower-gain sound, if desired.
