Fender '68 Vibrolux Vintage Modified

Press Release just in from Fender / FMIC:

"SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.  (September 9, 2014) – Fender is proud to announce the release of the latest Vintage Modified Series amplifiers, the ’68 Custom Vibrolux® Reverb amp, following the success of the popular ’68 Custom Twin Reverb®, ’68 Custom Deluxe Reverb® and ’68 Custom Princeton Reverb® amps.

1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender, but a look that was brand new. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum “drip edge” grille cloth trim, the Vibrolux Reverb received a fresh new face, as it remained the compact, gig-ready amp of choice for pros and amateurs everywhere. The 1968 Vibrolux Reverb featured a unique 2x10 speaker configuration, which delivered snappy twang and big tube tone, while still incorporating world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Vibrolux Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender tone.

The ’68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender’s late-’60s “silver-face” amps. In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the “custom” channel has a modified Bassman® tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals. The amp also features quicker gain onset and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity. While fitting a sweet spot between the Deluxe Reverb and Twin Reverb, in respect to power and size, the ’68

Custom Vibrolux Reverb’s dual 10” Celestion® TEN 30 configuration and 35 watts of all-tube power deliver distinctive rock ‘n’ roll flavor.
