Yet another limited edition amp from Fender! This time, the Arizona-based firm has announced a Black Western Blues Deluxe Reissue, the latest addition to their seemingly ever-expanding FSR series of upgraded guitar amplifiers.
Celestion G12-65 speaker
The Black Western Blues Deluxe Reissue has an upgraded single Celestion G12-65 speaker, instead of the standard Eminence 12″ speaker found on the standard model. This is a nice upgrade and one that will make a noticeable difference to the tone.
What is really quite striking about this model is the faux-leather ‘Western’-style amp covering. It gives the amp a cool retro look, which makes it stand out from a lot of other amplifiers. It isn’t real leather, of course, and so it doesn’t cost the earth, but the aesthetic I am sure will appeal to many players.
This amp has two channels, and gets its 40 Watts of power from a pair of 6L6 Groove Tubes and three 12AX7 preamp valves. The amp also has a spring reverb unit and an effects loop, so you can easily use it for gigging and studio work. This amp weighs in at around 20 kg and so isn’t too heavy either, and should fit easily into the boot of your car.
