Dating fender deluxe reverb
Silly me , I just published a link on how to date your Fender amp and I just went and dated y Deluxe Reverb ! It sounds great and so I have decided not to mess with what was a factory Mistake/ Change/ Customisation?
This one is an odd amplifier because when I decided to start on the restoraton, I noted that the circuitry was not pure Silverface but a blend of Blackface and Silverface.
So if your blackface amp has a date code stamp of OB, it was made in 1965/February.
If your tweed champ is stamped HH, it was made in 1958/August.
Note the "hard" break angle on the bevel at the top of the cabinet. This was a hallmark of Fender amps produced late in the silverface era.
The tube chart date code works like this: the first letter indicates the year and the second letter indicates the month.I have a silverface deluxe reverb I'm trying to find out what year it is.it has a stamped in chassie A972286 and under that is a printed # 9715 it's a killer amp and VERY LOUD it been tweeked by jay montrose he was danny gattons guitar tech How Do I Know What Year My Fender Twin Reverb Is?They used a code like this: 606 – 645 The date is in the last three digits, after the 606 – .The first of the three digits tells us the last digit of the year (unfortunately not decade specific) and the last two numbers tell us the week.
