This is not a reissue - it is a genuine 1968 Fender Twin. Clarry at 34 Audio has given it a service and described it as being the best sounding Twin he has ever come across, with the deepest reverb. Speakers are 2 x 12” Jensens. Condition is excellent - the amp was recovered by the previous owner in blonde Tolex and oxblood grille. The amp is 110v so the auction includes a stepdown transformer.

Since listing the amp I have been contacted by a previous owner who has filled me in on some history:

“I’m the guy that brought this amp into the country in 2000. Bill Sundt is Mike’s (Mike Soldano) chief Engineer, and I got the Tolex and Oxblood Grille Cloth from the back room where Mike Stores all the NOS stuff he uses for covering amps. The knobs are original 62 knobs from an older Twin.
I bought this Amp from Chris Issac’ Guitar Player. We’ve all agreed that it is a good one! The amp was original when I sold it on in order to remodel my Lounge in 2001.
Mike (Soldano) and I both agreed that the Amp shouldn’t be fiddled with because it was such a nice sounding one and all original, cept for the new Grille Cloth and Tolex. Mike sources his Tolex from the same Luggage company in LA as Leo Fender used in the old day’s when Fender’s were special.”
