More about ’68 Custom Twin Reverb®

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 Twin Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the backline amp of choice for pros and amateurs everywhere. Clear, deep and powerful, it produced big tube tone, with world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Twin Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender sound.

The ’68 Custom Twin 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. The ’68 Custom Twin Reverb’s dual 12” Celestion® G12V-70 speak- ers also deliver a more distinctively rock ‘n’ roll flavor.

Fender is reissuing silverface amps? Now I've seen everything! In all seriousness, these amps are part of my DNA, lugging a Super or a Twin silverface to jams and practices. Candidly, I have not played this amp. But, adding reverb and tremelo to the "Normal" channel (why didn't they do that back then?), and adding the Bassman circuitry option will clearly make this a big seller. My bell-bottoms are already hyperventilating.
