She also wants to reduce the time between songs when we play live. In order to play in Gb, I have to capo the second fret. When I do that, my tuning goes sharp and...

    Jensen C12Q vs C12K

    The ‘64 Custom Deluxe has a Jensen C12Q speaker, which is lighter and less expensive than the Jensen C12K in the ‘65 Reissue Deluxe. This is all I know about those speakers. What other characteristics make them suitable for that particular amp design?

    NAD: Fender ‘64 Custom Deluxe Reverb

    It’s the real deal; reverb and vibrato (tremolo) on both channels. It is quieter and weighs 10 pounds less than my ‘65 Reissue. And the standby switch doesn’t “pop.” Nice job, Fender. (And Happy Birthday to me.)

    Fender Deluxe Reverb 65 Reissue Standby “Pop”

    Switching this amp to standby (down) will produce an annoying “pop.” I have also read the article that Sweetwater has on their site explaining why this is “normal.” I have also read that Fender has warned that fixing it would void the warranty. Nevertheless, it is annoying and I would like...

    I have this speaker in a 1968 Deluxe Reverb. I have heard of the Oxford C12K-5 model, but the second “12” in the model throws me. Does anyone know what that means? Here is the label from the back. Thank you for your time.

    Fender Deluxe Reverb Glides

    I have a 1968 Deluxe Reverb that I put corners on in 1972. I’m trying to restore the amp to original, but I can’t remember what kind of glides were on it before I did that. The new 65 Reissue Deluxe Amps have the press-on glide cups and the 64 Custom Deluxe Amps have the Sphinx Glides that...

    Fender Custom Shop '50s Journeyman Relic Telecaster

    I’m still bonding with it but so far, so good. The best feature is the soft V neck. I could do without the relic treatment, but somehow, that’s kind of cool. More later.

    Fender Tonemaster Deluxe Reverb

    Last weekend, I traded a 65 Reissue Super Reverb for a Tonemaster Deluxe Reverb. I gigged it with my country band last night. It was amazing. I took a 65 Reissue Deluxe for a back up amp, but never used it. Our band is miked through the PA and I just plugged into the XLR in the back of the...
