DescriptionThe Fender ’57 Amp is a limited-edition 300-piece run of this 12-watt, hand-wired tube amplifier with a 12” speaker housed in a smartly retro split-grille cabinet with a black “piano lacquer” finish.
Fender kicked the 5E3 Deluxe platform up a notch by using a Celestion® Alnico Blue speaker in a new cutom-designed maple cabinet with knurled ’57 logo knobs, solid aluminum handle and custom hardware. The amp includes a leather collector’s portfolio containing a certificate of authenticity, designer notes, factory photos and some other surprises. Custom-embroidered plush-lined cover included.
