Hey now!

I have three amps for sale. All are the Fender AB763 preamp circuit and all have slipcovers. 1.) Fender Deluxe Reverb 1965 Blackface reissue $600. 2.) Blackfaced 1972 Fender Super Reverb in head cab with 4ohm/8ohm OT $800.00 3.) project amp, Deluxe Reverb style $300. Pics here I will pack them well (remove tubes, large bubble wrap, styrofoam panels, and double box. You pay for the shipping carrier of your choice. I recommend Fed Ex for lower rates on heavy boxes. PM me if interested. Here is more info:

1. Fender 1965 DRRI: very good to excellent condtion. Tubes have some life left in them. Comes with stock blue speaker or Eminence Cannabis Rex upgrade for 640.

2. 1972 Fender Super Reverb, Very good condition. It has been blackfaced: the '72 shipped with an aa270 circuit. The difference is two resistors and a cap in the phase inverter section. Those have been replaced consistent with the ab763. The other change is the 5U4 rectifier and slightly dvc in the circuit. It also has a different OT with a 4 ohm or 8 ohm tap. It is in a mojotone head cab. It is a great amp and has been extremely reliable after I lost the reverb tank during shipping when I bought it. I replaced the tank. Here it is advertised locally with more pics: ... 82203.html

3. A non functioning Blackface Fender Deluxe Reverb clone (AB763). This is a long story... First off, I am not an amp tech and bought it off ebay from an electronincs teacher who started building tube amps for fun about 8 months ago. It has had a couple issues since I bought it and is completely unreliable in the state it's in. It sounded great when it worked. Apparently, It was an original early 70's silverface DR salvaged from a shed in Sumner, WA. The only thing to be salvaged was the chassis. It was cleaned up with Naval Jelly and looks amazing. It has a brand new Ted Weber Cab with no speaker. Everything on the amp except the chassis was brand new when I bought it 8 months ago as a very close replica of a pre CBS blackface AB763 Deluxe Reverb clone. I was getting all kinds of loss of power, snapping crackling, about a couple months after I bought it. I live in a rural area with limited amp tech knowledge around, I brought it to one guy, he fixed it temporarily and then it started some different snap crackles and pops. I can't spend any more money on it. I am hoping to get 300 for it. I will part it out and sell the cab and amp separate, too. 150 for the cabinet and 200 for the amp only.

Thanks for looking, listen to the music play!

so the super reverb is being used in this video from last summer. I think the only effect I was using was a tube screamer at some point in the solo. Here is a vid of the non functioning Deluxe Reverb when it was functioning. The stock Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue is up for auction on ebay with bids now. There are tons of sound clips of these amps, they are ubiquitous. I don't have any of mine specifically. Thanks for the interest!
