I have a line on an early '80s Deluxe Reverb- not a Deluxe Reverb II, but the final version of the original Deluxe Reverb. According to Rob Robinette, the final circuit revision was in 1977 and even that wasn't much changed from the 1970 version- the Deluxes never got the "Ultra Linear" treatment that plagued the big amps. My question is, how well made were those early '80s amps compared to the earlier '70s silverfaces? Fender was basically circling the bowl by the late '70s, and the guitars of that period were, on average, not of the same quality as the ones a decade earlier. I know that Fender started introducing snubber caps in the '70s to allow sloppier construction, by the end of the run were these amps basket cases or do they hold their own against the earlier silverfaces?
