Yea, sorta. Interested, then read on! With its 5G4 circuit designation, this particular amp, with a serial number of has one foot still in tweed land and one foot in the brown era. These were the very first amps Fender made that had the control panel facing forward, and it seems as though they forgot about that when they made the first few prototypes.
Forgot your password? By 75guitar , November 21, in Amps. I am a long time amateur guitar player with a modest collection of vintage late 60's - mid 70's mostly semi-hollow body guitars. Also have a Ventura jazz box. Been using a 's Peavey Backstage Chorus Amp -- not bad, but I'd like a different sound more jazzy, 60's - 70's "ish".. I play a lot of music from that era. Not looking to spend a ton, and would hope to find a nice used one like I found this one.
Since I primarily collect amps by Fender, and guitars by Gibson, Fender, Martin, National, Epiphone, Gretsch and Rickenbacker, I really can't help them with these other less popular brands. As you have probably noticed, there is plenty of information here to help date the brands that I am interested in. But where does that leave everyone else? Well I'm not one to leave you out in the informational cold, so here's something that I use quite often in dating amplifiers and electric guitars. It's called the "source-date code", and it can help determine the approximate age of an electric instrument by the date its components were manufactured.
