The Twin was Fender’s original two 12-inch speaker tube amp launched in 1952. Like many of Fender’s amps, the Twin underwent a number of cosmetic and electronics changes throughout its run. Originally, the Twin used Fender’s standard narrow and then wide-panel designs with tweed covering in the ’50s before changing to a white tolex with oxblood grill style in 1960. These amps ran from 61 – 62 along side a piggy back Showman design. In 1963 they went from the oxblood grill cloth to a tan grill cloth before the series underwent more cosmetic changes in 1964, becoming the blackface Twin.
Our 62 Twin Amp comes to us in remarkably clean condition. The amp has been thoroughly gone through and documented in the photos above. The speakers were professionally re-coned in 1995. This amp sounds amazing and functions with out issue! A rare piece of Fender history and a real score for any player or collector.
