Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb Modified by George Alessandro
Both Fender and Marshall have re-issued some of their classic designs, but these reissue amps typically come stock with a printed circuit board, which tends to compromise both tone and reliability, and makes servicing them difficult, to say the least.
Due to popular demand, George Alessandro offers a rebuilding service for some of these models, in which he replaces the printed circuit boards with hand-wiring, and replaces the low-grade components with specially chosen components designed to enhance the amps tone and functionality.
This '65 Reissue Deluxe Reverb has been completely re-handwired by George Alessandro and if you are looking at this listing, you already know that these handwired reissue amps are the closest thing to an original Blackface Fender Amplifier.
George personally does all work on these types of projects, including:
Removing the printed circuit board, pots, and jacks
Build a custom board and handwire the circuit, following the original vintage specifications
All new pots and components are used in the re-build
The factory transformers, chassis, and certain other components are re-utilized
Amps comes stock with Fender Groove Tubes
The new circuit board utilized in these rebuilds is a custom, proprietary Alessandro epoxy/glass laminate military specification board. Components include:
All wiring is done using audio-grade silver eutectic solder
Select orange drop-style capacitors
Alessandro’s proprietary high-end filter and bypass capacitors (made in Germany)
Silver mica caps in the audio path
PTFE/Teflon-coated silver-plated wire (the same as used in Alessandro amps)
Switchcraft military spec input jacks
Carbon resistors in audio path for proper tone
Film resistors in power supply for quiet, reliable operation
Upgraded speakers are an available option
