Fender Super Reverb in the shop!

A silverface super reverb walked into the shop today…..Underneath the chassis I found very old, factory-installed electrolytic capacitors. Probably at least 40 + 5 years old. These have got to be replaced!

Plus, instead of a Super Reverb spec’d output transformer the amp has a Twin Reverb output transformer. Who the heck bolted that on there?

A lot of things happens, and doesn’t happen, to guitar amplifiers over the years. Sometimes, mods happen, and routine maintenance doesn’t.

I hope to get this amp into great shape. It has potential to be a wonderful guitar amp..just needs some TLC.
