“Smelling of patchouli, wax and incense burns, the glow of the tubes compliments the glow of a lava lamp.”

For 2018, the Fender Custom Shop announces a limited run of Champ 10 Relic amps, specially hand-aged by Master Builders Shawn Greene and Jim Dolmage. The amp starts with a ’57 Custom Champ chassis and a custom-made solid pine cabinet designed to house a larger 10-inch speaker. Then the magic begins, with each hand-finished amp bearing a specific “back story” as to how it ended up with its own distinct wear and tear.

A Fender Custom Shop badge on the rear panel signifies each amplifier as a genuine article.

No add - just sharing what I saw on line related to our passion. Just found it to be strange. Maybe wrong spot on the board. Not my equipment or company. I have nothing for sale = I do not sell anything nor make anything but music. Carry on.

Uhhh… yes.

The exquisite combination of too much and yet not enough.

I have a '67 Champ. There is no way you are going to get Jerry tones out of a stock champ by itself. I get pretty respectable Jerry tones from mine, at lower volume levels to keep it clean, but only by using a Real Tube Reverb in front of it, and JBLs. And... no one would give me $800 for it. $4000 lololololololol
