Take a Trip Back to 1968

The 2-channel '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb all-tube combo amp delivers everything you love about classic, late-'60s Fender amplifiers and then some. Its all-tube circuitry, handwired tube sockets, and custom-made Schumacher transformers make this one of the most accurate historical tribute amps ever made. But Fender went further by reducing the negative feedback for an amp that overdrives faster and has increased touch sensitivity. You get vintage and custom channels for two distinct voices. And it houses a 12" Celestion G12V-70 speaker for a distinct rock 'n' roll vibe. Fender's '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb gives you tons of vintage vibe with a hot-rodded punch!

Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb All-tube Combo Amplifier at a Glance:
  • Classic looks and design
  • Two amps in one
  • Hot-rodded sound and response
Classic looks and design

Fender created the all-tube '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb combo amp as a tribute to the late-'60s Silverface amps. It's dressed up with the same style of faceplate and silver-turquoise grille cloth with aluminum trim. From the handwired tube sockets to the vintage-spec Schumacher transformers, the Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb delivers the vintage-vibed tone and feel you would expect.

Two amps in one

Fender designed the 2-channel '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb with two very different voices. The vintage channel delivers the classic Deluxe Reverb goodness you know and love. The new custom channel is based on a modified Bassman tone stack for big, fat tone. The Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb combo amp also lets you use the classic all-tube spring reverb and tremolo circuit on both channels.

Hot-rodded sound and response

The '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb isn't a reissue - it's a hot-rodded tribute amp. Fender designed the custom channel of this all-tube combo amp with a modified tone circuit that delivers greater tonal flexibility when used with your favorite effects pedals. They also reduced the amp's negative feedback to give it increased touch sensitivity, and it also starts to overdrive faster. The Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb has a single 12" Celestion G12V-70 speaker that gives it a definite rock 'n' roll flare.

First Fender Amp

After many years of playing and many (too many) amps, I finally purchased a real Fender and have no idea why I waited so long. This amp sounds great and is beautiful to look at. Love the Celestion V-Type speaker. I've recently put this speaker in several cabs and am really happy with it in all locations. The Deluxe Reverb really shines around 3 on the volume and has splendid tones above and below. Looking forward to tracking with this amp, too. Fractal Audio FX8 straight into it opens Pandora's tonal box.

'68 Custom Deluxe Reverb

I recently started looking for a new amp in hopes of simplifying my rig and making it easier to setup & transport. The '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb fit the criteria of all-tube and light weight. I tested one out locally and was blown away at how great the cleans were on the Vintage channel with a standard Mexican Telecaster. The other positive feature was that the Custom channel had been tweaked to work better with pedals. I currently have 4 pedals for overdrive & gain on my board (Xotic EP booster, Xotic BB Preamp, Fulltone Fulldrive2, Wampler Plexi-Drive) and all sound awesome with the amp. I play a Baja Telecaster & a Music Man LIII. Guitars with hot humbuckers sound better through this amp if you use overdrives that have higher gain. I highly recommend the Wampler Plexi-Drive!! I used to not even consider buying an amp unless it had an effects loop (for delay/modulation effects); in fact, the last 5 amps I owned all had one. This amp doesn't have one and I'm not missing it at all. Since I'm relying on pedals for my overdrive tones, the delays/reverbs sound just fine when running through the front of the amp. Don't let the lack of an effects loop keep you from considering this amp. Plus, the absence of the loop makes set up much easier; with my previous amp I needed 5 instrument cables for the effects loop, channel switching, and guitar. I only need 2 with this amp.

Great amp!

Absolutely love this amp! I've played through older vintage ones over the years and honestly I think this sounds better than any I've heard. Both channels are so good. I'm a little partial to the Custom channel which I'm told is voiced like a Bassman. But I love both channels. This is my favorite recording amp!

5 stars all day

This amp is probably the best fender has come out with. I had a deluxe reverb about 4 years ago that had been gigged with pretty heavily but well taken care of, sounded amazing. This one sounds even better... right out of the box, not even close to being broke in yet. It takes pedals better, not that it didn't take them well before. The left side now has the reverb and vibrato, which is a huge plus. I didn't even use the side much before because I love reverb. I think I might like the left side better now, because it has way more *****. This is the ultimate blues amp, hands down.

68 custom deluxe reverb

I am a professional player who's played for years and has used every amp imaginable including a lot of fenders....my style is roots, blues rock and beyond and I can honestly say I've never been happier with an amp. I use this with the straight clean sound which is gorgeous fender sparkle, and I put a tube screamer through for mild grit and a vox satchurator pedal for more serious ooomph. The amp handles the pedals just beautifully producing a lead sound with my strat's treble pickup that has become one of the alltime favorites that I have achieved.All the modifications to this amp, removing the bright caps, reduced negative feedback, accelerated picking response, celestion speaker, the bassman tone stack on the custom channel, and both channels having access to the vibrato are all worth they're weight in gold. This is a gem of a club and recording amp and the price is in the real world. I got this on my sweetwater card and the payments were great and when the first one arrived and I found the reverb cut out only on gigs, Sweetwater asap replaced it with another that has been great. You can't go wrong with this amp and Sweetwater,
