Both had seen many miles by the time I got them, and I've added a few more to the Bassman in the nearly 20 years that I've owned it.

If you are not familiar with working on vacuum tube equipment, you should consult an experienced technician before opening any equipment containing vacuum tubes.

I can't say today that they are the "best kept secret", because over the past few years, the prices on them are steadily climbing..obviously, the secret has gotten out.

Condition: Used, Good - Some tolex scuffing and overall playwear, pilot light does not work, 1st input of Channel 1 has shorting issues *Due to the size of this amp, it is available for Local Sale/Pickup Only*With an illustrious history dating back to 1946, Fender has touched and transformed music worldwide and in nearly every genre: rock ‘n’ roll, country and western, jazz, rhythm and blues and many others.

Everyone from beginners and hobbyists to the world’s most acclaimed artists and performers have used Fender instruments and amps, in the process making the company not only a revered music industry name, but also a cultural icon.

I also apologize for not having a lot of photos of mint Silverface equipment.

Presently, I personally own only two well worn Silverface road warriors, a 1971 Champ, and a 1972 Bassman 50 (AA371).Pretty much for the first 5 years, CBS didn't make that many changes to the amp circuits in production when they took over, and kept the current cosmetic scheme, a black faceplate with white lettering, black tolex (which Fender had changed to in 1964) and a bone colored grillcloth with black and silver threads in it.But, there were a few changes here and there, some models were discontinued during that time..as the Concert and Pro in 1965 and the Deluxe in 1966.That Music Master Bass amp or Silverface Champ that you could have bought all day for 50 bucks as recently as 2 years ago can run as high as 350-400 on ebay now.Though, hopefully no one will bid on those that are that high. But, they are still available at killer prices, if for no other reason, there are many of them still available..a silverfaced amp was passed over in the 80's and 90's by someone that HAD to have a tweed or blackfaced one.If you need to see them, Google the Fender Field Guide. Quite simply, a Silverface Fender Amp is an amplifier made by the Fender Musical Instruments Company from late 1967 to 1983. I suppose that if you compare Silverface equipment to its earlier tweed and blackface brethren, the silverface amps are in many cases not that great, and that is the justification that has been used for a couple of decades by Silverface critics.
