Pick up Vintage Guitar’s October issue for a full two-page read on a Fender 5G4 Super Amp that was apparently purchased for $25 at a pawn shop in Reno by Nashville guitarist, producer and studio owner Vaughn Skow.
“After hauling the amp home, Skow began to realize — as did we upon perusing its sultry details – that this was not just any sweet brown Super, but a very early, rare and unusual Super,” write VG’s Dave Hunter.
Hunter goes on to explain why this Super Amp is “not only a stunningly original early brownface Fender, but one of the cleanest vintage Fenders of any era that you are ever likely to find, with nary a part changed, including the tubes.”
So for all of you vintage amp lovers, pick up the issue and turn to page 60 for the “find.”
