1962 Fender Princeton, Brownface

  • Sale
  • Regular price £2,250.00


1962 Fender Princeton in very good condition. Serial P02086.  It comes with a new 110V / 240 V Hammond transformer (recently serviced and wired to 240V so no step-down transformer needed). It has a new handle, back panel screws and chassis mounting bolts and plates. The speaker appears to be CTS, it's certainly old but as there are no visible date stamps its impossible to date accurately. The amp 12 watts. Tube chassis, preamp: 7025, 12AX7, power: 2 X 6V6, 5Y3 rectifier, tremolo, front brownface control panel, two input jacks, four brown knobs (v, t, s, i), ground switch on back, completely new design from earlier Princeton, Brown Tolex covering, light brown grille cloth. 

In June 2020 It was serviced by Mac Amplification in Leeds and is in fantastic working order. The service record will be included with the sale. The service notes are as follows, Tidy up the previous installation of replacement mains transformer and rewire to suit 240V. Replace incorrectly fitted capacitors with a correct multi-cap can. Clean intermittent valve bases and test valves. All OK. Clean control pots and jacks. Check components for tolerance. Fit new 3 core mains lead and plug.

The faceplate and tolex are very clean with only a few small scuffs and dings. There are only the slightest signs of wear to the grille cloth. It really is in remarkable condition. The speaker frame and the inside of the amp chassis have quite a lot of rust which I have done my best to tidy up. Fully serviced with a 30-day warranty. The tube chart code is mostly torn off. The pots date to 1961. The power transformer is relatively new as already stated, the choke dates to the 13th week of 62. 

Condition Very good 8.25/10
Serial Number P02086
