Classic Fender amp with extra cool factor
Soak It Up
Fender Musical Instruments just released its 15-watt Fender 80 Proof Blues Junior amplifier from the Fender Custom Shop. The limited-edition amp is housed in a handcrafted cabinet made from reclaimed Kentucky-bourbon barrels. Each amp features stamps from the various distilleries from which the wood was sourced.
Boasting the classic Fender tone (and a bourbon aroma when warmed up!), the company is releasing just 100 amps. Complementing the aged, solid oak cabinet are a leather handle and brass knobs and control plate. A Fender logo is seared into the wood.
The package includes the limited-edition 15-watt combo, solid oak cabinet created from reclaimed whiskey barrels, a 12-inch 8-ohm Jensen speaker, three 12AX7 preamp tubes plus two EL84 power tubes, and an onboard spring reverb and FAT boost. An optional one-button footswitch is available for hands-free boost.
