Product Description

The Bassman has significantly influenced the whole guitar amp industry since it was introduced. It’s tone stack, tube configuration, preamp and power section has inspired numerous amps builders including Jim Marshall, the founder of Marshall amps, who used the Bassman tweed 5F6-A circuit in 1958-1959 as template the legendary Marshall JTM45.

Here we a rare amp. The AA165 was made for a very short time. It was preceded by AB864 which is also a rare find and highly sought after. The AA165 is wired just like the AB865 and therefore is the original Leo Fender's Bassman design. Once CBS got a hold of the amp they rewired the circuit which resulted in the AB165.
