1959 Fender Tweed 5F1 Champ Nr. MINT!
1959 Fender Tweed Champ
A real survivor, the narrow panel tweed Champ sold in huge numbers, popular with students and professionals looking for that celebrated tweed tone in a compact package. Unlike its bigger brothers, the Champ remained almost entirely unchanged between 1955 and 1964, bringing the tweed era to a close.
This is a fantastic example. Very clean, neat MINT example, with no damage to the tweed. The control panel is in great condition showing only very slight signs of bubbling with the silk screened text still crystal clear and vivid.
The amp is still fitted with its correct speaker. Internally nothing seems to have been changed. The correct output transformer is still present.
As you’d hope, this amp sounds fantastic. With the volume set above half we’re straight into classic tweed territory and a sound that has to be heard to be believed. There is no doubt why this is such a lauded amp.
These don’t come up for sale very often in this condition and its been a while since we saw one this clean so grab it before it slips away…
