1981 Fender Champ?
Anyone have any experience with these? I was looking at a Champ, but the year/blackface have me a little confused.
Hand-wired Fullerton Era Rare Black-face Version All Original Excellent Condition
for a few months after they quit making silverface, but before the 'Rivera' series (AKA the 'II' or 2 series) they put black faceplates on them amps again, but internally they were the same as the silverface.
They are valued similarly to equivalent silverfaced amps.
Hm. I think i'll pass then. SF Champs generally pop up around here for 3-350.
I bought one of those new to take to university. Only new amp I've ever bought.
I still have it but the speaker blew long ago and I converted it into a Blackface Vibro Champ a few years back and retrofitted a 10" Weber speaker.
The only trouble with those amps - if you plan to do a 10" speaker swap - is that the chipboard speaker baffle is glued into channels on each of the cabinet side walls.
