Fender ’68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb
Fender adds to its Vintage Modified Series a reissue of the 1968 Vibrolux all-valve combo amp with reverb.
The difference with the original Silverface-type amp is the availability of a tube-driven spring reverb and tremolo for both channels and a modified Bassman tone stack on the Custom channel, the later was designed with pedal users in mind. Fender also modified the gain onset and negative feedback for improved touch sensitivity.
