Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier 100 Watt Head Diamond Face Plate
Up for auction is a 1984 Fender Super Champ amp in near mint condition. There are no tears on the tolex and the grill cloth is in perfect shape. The only sign of aging is some corrosion on the exterior metal parts that happens to all old amps and can be buffed out if desired. Included is the original and highly sought after two button foot switch that functions perfectly. Also included is the original speaker(still functions perfectly), original tubes(still function perfectly) and a newer fender vinyl cover, making this a true collector's item.
The speaker has been upgraded to a Jensen Neodymium speaker that sounds fantastic. The tubes were upgraded to new Tung Sols that have very low use. The amp has a 1/4" output jack installed where the original speaker was merely wired in, enabling this amp to be played through any 8ohm cabinet. It sounds amazing through my avatar 2x12 cabinet, loud enough for gigging.
Everything on this amp functions perfectly. The reverb is lush and better than on my Princeton reverb. The only reason I'm selling is to fund other acquisitions. This is a nice and clean example of a rare amp that only goes up in value. In the recent Fender Amp book "The Soul of Tone", the late Robert Quine expressed that this is his favorite Fender amp of all time.
Considering that all of the original equipment comes with this amp(even the elusive footswitch), and that tasteful high end upgrades have been made, I feel that the price I've set is fair. The same amp is being sold by other ebay dealers at the same price as mine that are in much worse shape and without all of the originals mine comes with. Don't miss your chance to own the rare and highly regarded Rivera masterpiece!
