The Paul Rivera era (82-86) Fender amps are highly sought. Here's a clean Super Champ from '85, Item ID# 230786197527, currently listed by dtownguitars near Philadelphia. These are the same folks who sell those new Princeton RI's modded by George Alessandro. The only odd thing about this amp, and it's mentioned by the seller, is that the speaker doesn't appear to be stock-- and they're not quite sure what it is. But if it sounded crappy, I suppose they'd wanna remedy things before listing it and calling attention to the speaker.
Anyway, there are a couple of these listed on eBay right now. During this period, Fender with Rivera were trying to make their small combos compete with Mesa's Mark series Boogie models.
