1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender but a look that was brand new. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum "drip edge" grille cloth trim, the Twin Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the backline amp of choice for pros and amateurs everywhere. Clear, deep and powerful, it produced big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Twin Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.

The '68 Custom Twin Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender's late-'60s "silver- face" amps. In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the "custom" channel has a modified Bassman tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals. The amp also features quicker gain onset and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity. The '68 Custom Twin Reverb's dual 12" Celestion G12V-70 speakers also deliver a more distinctively rock ˜n' roll flavor.

Comes equipped with Celestion Speakers (V Type) for a more modern, punchy sound that breaks up nicely when pushed. Reduced negative feedback lends a more "touch-sensitive" feel, quicker break up and added harmonic richness. The shared tremolo on both channels adds to its versatility. Because of this the '68 channels are wired in phase and can be blended for more tonal options, via A/B/Y box. "Custom" channel features a 50s Tweed "Bassman" tone circuit for more low mids and sooner breakup.

The '68s are ideal for players that love their amps to break up a little sooner, rock players, alternative players that like something a little different, players that use pedals,players that love the look of "Silverface" amps.

    Awesome Tone!

    Comments about Fender '68 Custom Twin Reverb 85W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp with Celestion G12V-70s Speaker:

    Strat cleans are just great! reverb and trem sound great. Both channels are voiced really nice. I went from a Blues Deluxe to this amp, I wanted to try the silver face and I liked it.After about 10 loud hours my Bogner pedals are sounding really good at bedroom level's to loud at 5 on the volume.Has good,warm thick and sweet high end tones.Construction is top notch all wood cabinet, the 212 speakers are really voiced good. They were a little ruff with dirt at first then it started to smooth out. I replaced the preamp tubes right a way with my favorite ones and some NOS at7's. I dont do a lot of reviews but im digging this amp more and more.

    Awesome amp just as adverstised

    By Stephen Van Pelt

    from Brick, New Jersey

    Comments about Fender '68 Custom Twin Reverb 85W 2x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp with Celestion G12V-70s Speaker:

    I've only owned it for about two weeks now, but this amp is everything I wanted and expected, given Fender's long-standing reputation and my equally long history with their products. The look and feel is great, albeit a little on the heavy side, so it's not as portable as I would like. But, I knew that going in, so I plan to add heavy-duty casters (hint: this amp should come with wheels). Also, the 60-cycle hum is a bit irritating, but I am taking measures to remedy that. UPS driver did a particularly poor job of delivering this heavy amp to the door of my house: he just dragged it by the top box flap, thereby opening it (too lazy to use his hand truck). Anyway, back to the amp itself. I love the separate channels as they accomodate all my instruments. Although heavy, very powerful and a bit pricey, I would definitely recommend it to all those who can handle it.
