OVERVIEW

40W of George Benson approved tone.

The Fender® George Benson Hot Rod Deluxe™ combo amp is fine-tuned for world-famous jazz guitar virtuoso and pop artist George Benson. It has the full bottom end characteristic of 6L6 tubes and a versatile all-tube preamp including a 12AT7 up front for cleaner tone; especially with humbucking pickups. A 100W Jensen C12K speaker handles the immediacy of Benson's singing soloing style with clarity and range, and the solid-pine cab increases tonal resonance while reducing weight. Standard features include clean and "Drive/More Drive" channels, resounding Fender spring reverb, effects loop and more. Personalized exterior touches specified by Benson himself include gray-black vinyl covering, silver-strand grille cloth and "GB" logo badge. Road-worthy deluxe padded cover and two-button footswitch included. Separate matching 1x12" extension enclosure adds output, fullness and stage coverage.

The GB Logo design is a trademark of Hoshino Gakki Co., Ltd., with which FMIC is not affiliated.

          Comments about Fender George Benson Hot Rod Deluxe 40W Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

          I traded in my fairly new hotrod deluxe for this amp, So I got to do a back to back test....without a doubt, at the very least for trad. jazz. this is THE amp....
          The amp just sounds more natural, more organic if you will. hard to describe sound in words, but if you are going to be playing standard jazz,, get this thing...

            Comments about Fender George Benson Hot Rod Deluxe 40W Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

            A Deluxe is just the right size for most gigging musicians. I would say that especially goes for jazz players because the Blues Jr can break up if you need lots of volume. And really, anything bigger than a Deluxe is more than most guys want to lug around. The Benson, because of the wood of the cabinet which gives it a warmer tone, is even more transportable than a typical Deluxe, because it's slightly lighter. I found mine on sale, so that it was less expensive than buying a regular Deluxe and switching out the speaker and tubes myself. If it lives up to the reputation Deluxes have built in terms of being a work horse, then it's a perfect amp. So far, so good.

              This GB Hot Rod Deluxe is the best little jazz amp in town. It has a gorgeous sound which can be dialed in with minimum effort! I play a Gibson L4CES and I am loving this amp!!

              Comments about Fender George Benson Hot Rod Deluxe 40W Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

              I buy most of my gear from MF but I bought this from my local music store, he's a nice guy and I'd like to see him stay in business. This is a great amp ! I bought it to use with my archtop guitars but it was just a bit to lively for me and my archtops. So !!! I purchased a Groove Tube ECC83-S pre-amp tube from MF and substituted it for the stock 12AT7 tube in position V-1. I think this was what the Hotrod series was really meant to be. The best way I can describe the sound of this amp is that it puts me in mind of the 4x10 Bassman reissue but with a lead channel and reverb. The lead channel in this amp is very usable and I think the combination of the jensen C-12k speaker and the sold wood cabinet gives this amp a superb resonance resulting in great tone.
