It has original tweed, grill clothe, handle, speaker, transformers, caps and power cable! The tube chart is missing and the power switch was moved, what appears to be in the 50's, to the top of the amp and over the Bassman logo. One of the caps appears to be leaking so that will need to be replaced. However it's just minor details and the amp actually sounds very good.\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003eThe factory copper top and bottom, chassis in the bottom of the cabinet are original as well. At 26 watts and a Jensen 15\" speaker, this is one powerful amp. The loudest Fender produced at this time. The jewel light glows bright in the lower back and the amp sounds great. Research data shows Leo built only 200 units this year, and around 600 5B6 Bassman's of total production between 1951 and 1953. A must for the serious collector and a fun amp to show and play, everything works. The amp can be used for guitar or bass and takes pedals well. The famous Eddie Cochran had a very similar personal amp he used for guitar back in the 1950's. This is an amp you don't see everyday, especially not in this condition. A true vintage classic!\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003eIt's really, really hard to find amps like this, in this condition. The tolex and grill looks awesome. The speaker and guts are really clean. It does have some cigarette burns in the tolex and some dings. It's not perfect but in super condition for an amp of its age.\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eModel\/Circuit

Product Description

Fender Wide Panel Tweed Bassman

Very cool and super rare 1953 Fender Tweed Bassman amplifier. It has original tweed, grill clothe, handle, speaker, transformers, caps and power cable! The tube chart is missing and the power switch was moved, what appears to be in the 50's, to the top of the amp and over the Bassman logo. One of the caps appears to be leaking so that will need to be replaced. However it's just minor details and the amp actually sounds very good.
The factory copper top and bottom, chassis in the bottom of the cabinet are original as well. At 26 watts and a Jensen 15" speaker, this is one powerful amp. The loudest Fender produced at this time. The jewel light glows bright in the lower back and the amp sounds great. Research data shows Leo built only 200 units this year, and around 600 5B6 Bassman's of total production between 1951 and 1953. A must for the serious collector and a fun amp to show and play, everything works. The amp can be used for guitar or bass and takes pedals well. The famous Eddie Cochran had a very similar personal amp he used for guitar back in the 1950's. This is an amp you don't see everyday, especially not in this condition. A true vintage classic!
It's really, really hard to find amps like this, in this condition. The tolex and grill looks awesome. The speaker and guts are really clean. It does have some cigarette burns in the tolex and some dings. It's not perfect but in super condition for an amp of its age.
