1966 Fender Vibro Champ Blackface in very good condition. It comes with the new footswitch. The tube chart code is not visible. Serial:A10828.  The original power transformer is coded 8316603 (3rd week of 66) We replaced the faulty output tranformer with a Hammond 1750C. The pots are a mixture of dates from mid-65 through to early 66. This amp is 110V and comes supplied with a brand new step-down transformer and 30 days warranty.

It also benefits from Fender's beautiful sounding tremolo circuit. There are a few scuffs in the tolex but no tears. There's some rusting to the metal parts but the faceplate is clean. The original oxf

Service of Fender Vibro Champ Amplifier Serial no. A10828
A new output transformer has been fitted. Work to a good standard. The amp has been previously ‘modified’ incorrectly, which is most likely the cause for the demise of the original transformer. Put back to standard and all faulty components replaced. Input jacks loose and incorrectly wired. Rewired back to standard.
Test all components for tolerance and replace as required. Check all fasteners for security. Clean all valve bases. Test valves. Clean/lubricate crackly control pots.
Tested to spec.

Condition Very good 8/10
Serial Number A10828
