    Price:
    $550.00
    Location:
    Tennessee
    Up for sale is a 1975 Fender Super Twin tube amp, housed in a MojoTone head case. This amp is 180 watts of beautiful, clean, LOUD Fender tone, with a unique rotary EQ section. Since owning this head, I've had it serviced by Vintage Bliss Amplification in Nashville, where they replaced all six power tubes with a matched set of JJ 6L6GCs and swapped some of the failing EQ caps to bring the amp closer to Studio Bass specs. Needless to say, it sounds better than ever!

    The new tubes have less than 20 hours of use, so they've got plenty of life left. The case is in very good condition, with only some minor separation of the Tolex along the top end seams. The amp has a grounded power cord, and will ship with a three-foot 12-gauge Whirlwind 1/4" to Speakon speaker cord, plus the almost-impossible-to-find original Fender dual foot switch, which controls the EQ and the (very scary) distortion circuit. I'll also include a second front baffle, which is covered with Fender silver grille cloth.

    Here's a TB thread with some excellent information about these amps. Don't let the 180 watt rating fool you. This amp is L-O-U-D! I've used it with both a 215 and a 610 cab, and it will easily keep up with a full five-piece rock band.

    I'm asking $550.00, and would prefer a local sale. However, I'd be willing to split the actual packing and shipping costs with the buyer. I prefer PayPal; but if you're within an hour's drive of Nashville, TN, I can meet you and will offer a cash discount. Please PM with any questions.

    The Fender Bassman 610 Neo cabinet in the photos does not come with the Super Twin head, but is also for sale here. A package discount is available!
