Fender Custom Shop 57 Champ ‘Survived the Flood’
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

WORLD GUITARS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE GUITAR STORE!
We have been hand-selecting, photographing, setting up and selling high end guitars for over 30 years. In this time we have always understood just how important it is to get the setup right. The best guitar in the world can feel very average if it's not setup properly. We have always made this a priority on every single guitar that leaves World Guitars.
Definitely an experience walking into World Guitars! Wow!
