Hey guys, long time lurker first time* poster here. As the title of my post suggests, I am curious about the blackface faceplate lettering color. I've seen it mostly as a white paint (silkscreen I assume) but in my search for answers I am seeing some that appear to be aluminum lettering (no paint just raw metal exposed under the black). This includes the index marks for the controls, the bright switch box outlines and the input jack ring outlines (barely visible behind the nut that holds them to the front panel). The logo (and everything else on the faceplate that isn't black) also appears in a similar fashion. I just recently purchased a 1965 Pro Reverb and it has what appears to be raw silver metal as the lettering instead of white paint. Was this something they did on some faceplates or is this a replacement? As you can imagine this is a really hard topic to search for, being that any searches with the world "silver" bring up a plethora of silverface questions so I apologize if a thread exists already. I'll post a pic and video to demonstrate what I mean Be sure to check the gear icon settings for the video quality. The striations may not appear in the low 480p quality setting (clickable for a very large fullsize) I have a feeling it's a reproduction but if it is, it seems to be VERY old. If any of you guys have any insight about these faceplates I would be forever grateful. It's always great to learn new things about these old fender amps and I am new to all of this!
