Wow! This amp is awsome!

I was looking at the Standard Edition and had the chance to play them side by side. here is what I found:

1. Both Amps Great, but the Alnico speaker in the Limited edition was much warmer, clearer and musical. Further the Limited Edition model did not have the slight "Harshness" that is often reported in the Standard Edition.

Don't get me wrong, both amps sound great! But the Limited Edition has much better clean tone than the Standard, no need for mods here.

2. Were the Limited shines even brighter is with the voulume turned up. Becuase the Limited Edition has a lower wattage Alnico speaker (Vs. the Ceramic speaker of the standard edtion) The speaker it's self breaks up nicer than the standard edition. Great for those classic 65 tones!

3. Made in America. Both Amps are, and I wouldn't buy them if they weren't. Good job Keeping Jobs in America Fender.

4. It takes pedals very well. My overdrives and Delays sounded great!

5. The fit and finish of the amp appeared flawless.

If your looking for the best musical bell like clean tones, This is your amp. I love it.

I think anyone who plays rock, country, or even blues would benefit from owning this amp. It sounds even better than my Twin Reverb RI. And...... it's a lot easier to transport. This has quickly become my #1 gigging amp. Being in a variety band, I play as many as 4 different guitars on any given night and they all sound great through this amp.
This is a no frills Fender Amp. That's what makes it so great. It has the sought after Fender Reverb, old school looks, and that sound only a tube driven Fender makes. Blackface cosmetics make it look like a '65 and the special Jensen speaker sounds great.
Overall, the build quality is good. Mine arrived with the pilot light not working. I removed the jewel, and found the bulb pushed way back into the socket. I had to remove the amp chassis from the amp cabinet and found the pilot light bracket had been bent back into the space behind the socket, and the bulb not latched into the socket. Installed the bulb correctly, straightened the mounting bracket and all was fine. But really.............. come on Fender, I spent $1000.00 on this amp and the pilot light is bent? Really?
This is a great amp. Tone is unmatched, and even though it's only 22 watts, it is suitable for most venues you'd play. Mine is always mic'd and I continually receive compliments on my tone. The limited edition is a very cool looking amp. The burgundy tolex looks fantastic and guys are always asking me if I had it custom built. Even at a grand, it's still a good value in my opinion.

BEST RE-issue of all Vintage Fender Amps.

By St James

from NYC and Philly area

Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I own this amp in it;s original form and use it 4 times a week professionaly. I daisy chain 4 of em at large venue's together but for an event with 2 thousand or less I willuse just the one.I have ourchses the re-issue to use during practice, and some studio work so I can get that PERFECT, WARM, BLUESEY tone these amps are known for. This amo is well worth the price and more. An original seels for 3 times the priceof theis re-issue does and you'lll never get one in such fine coindition without spending 5 thoudand dollars. I have yet tomention that the new re-issues come with a 5 year warranty that is transferrable.IMHO as a PROFESSIONAL this amp can do the job for a artist like myslef or for the weekend player or even a hobbyist who jams now n then. Itls low wattage should not ever let you thi it 's not prepared to ROCK the joint with a strong crystal clean Volume or with some setting changes this baby can get smokey n gritty and make ya feel like youlre back intime in some juke joint down south.This amp is THE MOST SOUGHT AFTEWR OF ALL BLACKFACES and this re-issue is so close I can barely tellthe difference and have begun taking my re0issues to shows inplaceof the Vintage ones knowing I'llget my great tone and also have no worries about reliability.Thisis the most versatile and best 22 watts you'll ever hear....and with the pricesof todays Boutique amps the price of this amp is actually CHEAP for all the features and tonal quality it has to offer. NO LET DOWN:S HERE and this new color is sure to be an eye catcher and make ya look even sharper on stage, or in your bedroom practicing.ENJOY...I do dailySt James

Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I purchased this because MF was out of stock on the std. DRRI. Great tone!!!! Only thing I did not like was the lack of volume with the Jensen P12-Q speaker. I switched it out to a beefier ceramic speaker (from a blues deville). Much better.The tubes are ALL Groove Tube label (Yay!), with the 6v6's being 6V6-S types, and the 12ax7 & 12at7's being G.T. JJ'S and Russians.....definitely did'nt cheap out on the tubes here.I pulled the 12AX7 from the normal channel (will leave empty for now) and used it in the phase inverter slot instead of the 12AT7. I am happy with just using channel 2 (a little more crunch for now). Cool looking amp!

Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I have many amps been playing for over 40 years been there did this did that if you can't make this amp work of you in any situation then you better learn to play a flute. This a basic combo amp with great tone that you can take to a gig with out breaking your back it loves pedals. If you do some research you'd find the deluxe reverb can be heard many many recording. If I was allowed one amp and one only it be The Deluxe Reverb
The color is cool is two channel amp just like they made in the old times and the Jensen alnico magnet nice! The Reverb is awsome and nice bottom end from a single 12 inch speaker
Seems to be well built from what I can see. Its not hand wired point to point circuit but never the less for a production amp very nice
Got a good deal from a friend Musicians Friend yep they know how to take of their customers thats why I keep coming back. The sales rep was out of sight he done me right!

FSR

Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

It's really a decent amp, especially if you like the sterile non Fender sound that you get out of it stock. I'm so sick of everyone getting these little non master volume amps and trying to get a high gain distortion sound out of them. Go get a Marshall or Blackstar and be done w/ it.
As far as features go, everything you could ever need in an amp. I've always been a fan of the Deluxe Reverb. I have an original blackface.
I almost sent this amplifier back to MF. Would have been the first product I had ever returned to them. Here's the deal: The "special design" Jensen speaker sounds bad. The stock tubes sound bad. This amp doesn't even get close to blackface territory with the stock speaker and tubes. I replaced them, and could at least see a light at the end of the tunnel. I will take the amp out to a small show tomorrow and see how it does. If it's still not cutting it, it will go to the amp tech.
Over all, you're getting a decent amp for your money. BUT, for all the changes that you will have to make to get it to sound to a real deal black face, you might as well get the real black face or early silver face, (still kicking myself). I'll dump the tubes and speaker to make some of my money back.

Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Here's all you need to know; the Jensen P12Q in it sounds amazing but beware that it doesn't have the headroom or cut through punch of a speaker with a higher SPL. My Blues Junior with the C12N in it is actually louder despite putting out less power. My opinion is that the trade off is worth it though. You can always mike an amp.

Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

Fantastic amp. Asthetically pleasing in 'Red Wine'. AlNiCo speaker at 40 watts (as opposed to the regular 100 watt) sounds awesome and begins to break up at about 5 (volume). Sooooooo much spring reverb and a really nice tremolo. Good mix of clean and dirty sounds.

Classic

Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

This is your basic deluxe reverb, which is like a blank slate to color your own tone with. The clean is great, and the overdriven sounds are nice, but I use a dirt pedal. I wasn't sure of the new color, but after seeing it in a store, WOW...gorgeous!!!

Great amp, at least the parts that work

By Mouse

Comments about Fender Limited Edition '65 Deluxe Reverb 22W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp:

I really like this amp. I love the sound and characteristics of an amp with 6V6's. Great sound with solid build. The limited edition colors look great. Just wish the reverb worked.
Has just about everything you could want in an amp with the exception of a master volume/ gain combination. Nice having a regular channel and vib/rev channel. great vib sound.
I just received this amp and the reverb is not working. Turn the reverb on and all I get is hiss, no reverb; the amount of hiss increases as the reverb level is increased. Going to see if it's just a bad tube (hopefully) or a bad reverb pan. Also the lettering is upside-down on the footswitch if you like having the cable running away from you, not toward. Aside from that, the amp components have a nice substantial feel with smooth operation. The parts that are working work great.
Not a bad price for an amp that has the classic Fender sound and features.
