There‘s a band called The Faint that used to be called Norman Bailer. Their debut album was Sine Sierra.
The album artwork looks like it was lifted from a Fender catalog or add circa 1965. It looks like there‘s a 65 Fender Twin, Super Reverb and Deluxe Reverb and a 64-66 Strat with the target burst style sunburst.
Does anyone know where the artwork is originally from?

I "believe" I've seen both of those pics before......and not as album covers. Maybe in one of the Fender books? And yes, I believe they were promotional shots for Fender advertisements.

That's great. Nothing to add, but my parents had nearly the same Danish Modern coffee table and green rug. :p No cool amps or guitars in the living room at that point though.

Okay kids, here’s what we’ll do. David, you sing and play guitar. Danny, you’ll pretend to play bass. Your mom and sister will be here soon to join in, they’re out getting the old school bus painted. The first song is called “I Think I Love You” and it’ll drive teenage girls wild.

This is why I love the internet. Thanks everyone for providing background info and submitting the beautiful pictures. What awesome photos of 65 Fender gear. I want my living room decked out with 65 Fender blackfaces too!
