The classic Fender Champ amp is back
The Fender Champ amp of the late 1950s was a well-known name even among the legends like Johnny Cash, Keith Richards and Eric Clapton. Fender amps have defined electric guitar and bass guitar amplification with their great sounding, low-output, easy-to-record capabilities. The Fender 57 Champ Custom amp ($1,000) is the hand-wired recreation of the classic vintage Fender amp. It offers chrome control panel, black vintage pointer knob, red jeweled pilot light, finger-jointed solid-pine speaker cabinet covered with lacquered tweed with oxblood grille cloth. The Fender amp is a true piece of craftsmanship that made the music so influential during the ‘50s and saw the emergence of the most popular music form – rock ‘n’ roll.
