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:

      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.
