Deluxe Amplification Blondie


Does anyone have any experience with one of these? Was wondering what they are like.


Luxetone has been in business for a long time building 6G6-B replica amps in Palm Springs, CA. Quality, reliability and a proven track record by a builder who has grown up w fender amps. The Luxtone Blondie-B is $1575. Spend wiser.



I thought he’s talking about the shop in East Tennessee.

Cool. Thanks! I had been looking at the Allen Hot Blonde but came across the Deluxe Amplification. Sounds like maybe I should be considering the Luxetone and the Allen.


Very Happy with my Allen Accomplice Jr. The 'Raw' control is a great feature, letting you move between Blackface and Tweed tone profiles.


sheepishly but why not, there's always the Blondeshell to throw in the ring too, but its not a pure clone. I wanted to take what Leo Fender did, without altering the channel of the amp I love and add more versatility to it. So by definition, its not a replica Bassman.

Its the "normal" channel alone of the 63' 6G6-B Blonde bassman, and I've added a 61' tube rectifier sag switch, a half power mode, and a mids cut switch. So you kind of get all eras of the tolex bassmen's normal channel. The basis though is 100% blonde 6G6-B.



Definitely thought about the Blondeshell to go along with my Dynobrain but just cannot swing the cost, unfortunately.


Anyone have any hands on experience with the Allen Hot Blond? Also, is Luxetone not making their Bassman clone anymore?
