Survived The Flood – Nashville 2010 may have been under water for a while, but this little amp dried out and is still singing. One one of these super collectable, beautiful amps made it to the UK!
For 2018, the Fender Custom Shop announces a limited run of Champ 10 Relic amps, specially hand-aged by Master Builders Shawn Greene and Jim Dolmage. The amp starts with a ’57 Custom Champ chassis and a custom-made solid pine cabinet designed to house a larger 10-inch speaker. Then the magic begins, with each hand-finished amp bearing a specific “back story” as to how it ended up with its own distinct wear and tear. A Fender Custom Shop badge on the rear panel signifies each amplifier as the genuine article.
Each amplifier includes the following features: All-tube, hand-wired ’57 Custom Champ™ circuitry Fender Vintage “yellow” tone capacitors Upsized solid pine cabinet Upsized custom-made 10-inch, 4 Ohm Celestion G10 speaker for full, rich tonal response Lacquered Tweed covering, ‘50s style grille cloth, and leather handle Each amp boasts its own unique hand-aged process with virtual “back story” Includes Fender Custom Shop Certificate Of Authenticity Champ 10 Relics
