About This Listing
You are looking at a 100% ORIGINAL early 1960 Fender Twin-Amp chassis!! The rest of the amp is as reads.

A real nice chunk of Fender history. A 61 year old early1960' untouched Fender Twin-Amp chassis with a restored cabinet..

A customer tried for 2 years to sell me this project and finally we did it. When I got this labor of love project amp It was the all original chassis and all the rest of the wood to the cabinet with no tolex, no screws or hardware, and no speakers. A superb 100% original chassis and a pile of old Fender wood missing the baffleboard and all the screws speakers, and hardware.
So we proceeded forward ordering the proper Blonde Tolex, Oxblood grill cloth, original early 60's tilt back legs, a new Fender replacement brown leather handle, 2 new 12" 12PN Jensen bell back 50 watt Special Design speakers, Fender replacement amp corners, and 4 Fender amp glides for the bottom.
The rest of the parts came from my private vintage part inventory. The back panel screws, an original complete speaker 'F' stamp cloth wiring harness, and an early 60's black power cord restraint supporting the original grey power cord, back panel screws etc.
The pots read mostly from the 10th. week of 1960 137-6010 making this a fairly early 1960 Fender Twin. It is truly amazing the condition and originality of the chassis components. I mean the filter caps are not even starting to bubble up!
So today we finished the restoration installing the new speakers and a full assembly. Let her warm up for a bit and a customer cranked it up for 10-15 minutes. It sounds AMAZING with that superb vibrato to boot. TONE at it's best. NO issues ready to burn it.
