Personalised multi point setup included

Before dispatch, your instrument will be treated to a full setup. Thats not a quick tweek but a full multi point setup by an experienced guitar technician who will check and adjust every single thing on your guitar, bass, ukulele or banjo to ensure it is performing at its absolute best.

This is not a quick process but we believe every instrument should go through our process to acheive an exacting standard of playability.

Frets

We start with the frets on your instrument. All guitar neck move and change over time so we will make sure that your frets are nice and flat as we go up the neck. We don't want any high or low spots as theis will mean your guitar will need a higher than optimum action and potentially suffer with fret buzz.

We check and properly profile the playing surface of the frets and then make sure the fret ends are finished off properly.

Truss Rod

Then it's on to the truss rod. This metal rod differs from guitar to guitar (some guitars such as classical guitars don't usually have a truss rod!) and basically controls the "relief" or curve of the neck. Not enough relief and your strings won't have enough clearance over the other frets when playing. Too must relief and you'll have a high action which gets worse as you go up the neck.

The heavier the strings then the more the truss rod needs to work. Proper adjustment in the workshop means that the action will be just right.

Top Nut

The top nut is super important and is one of the two open contact points of your guitar. The tech will check and cut each slot to make sure the strings both run freely but are not sitting in a slot that's too big.

The top nut also plays a big part in the action of your guitar so we'll hit that sweet spot between too low and too high.

Saddle(s)

Another really important part of your guitar!

On an acoustic, the saddle is cut to the correct height making sure the bottom is 100% flat and straight. This means the string can transfer its vibration properly into the body of your guitar.

For electric guitars, the saddles are adjusted to form the correct radius to match that of your fretboard.

Description

The Fender '68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb takes one of Fender's best loved, most iconic amps from the late '60s and gives it a tweak for modern playing styles.

With a look that is firmly planted in the late 1960s, the '68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb will appeal to any guitarist who is a fan of Fender's classic 'Silverface' amplifiers with their silver and turquoise front panel and aluminium grille cloth trim.

Having 35 watts of valve driven power, the Vibrolux is a perfect small club/ recording amp allowing the player to push the amp hard without deafening volume. The onboard tremolo and genuine valve powered, spring reverb add to the Fender magic delivering bags of lush, shimmering tone.

As a nod to modern playing styles, Fender have, in addition to the traditional Vintage channel, added a Custom channel. This adds the Fender Bassman Tone Stack to the circuit and allows the amp to deliver a lot more punch and power to its output.

Handling all of this tone are a pair of Celestion 10" Ten30 speakers, voiced for modern, crunchy tones. 

Other features include a traditional black textured vinyl covering with a silver/ turqoise grille cloth, a blue jewel power light and a 2-button footswitch allowing the reverb and vibrato to be switched remotely.

  • 35W valve powered combo
  • Silverface style front panel
  • 2 x Celestion Ten30 10" speakers
  • Preamp - 4 x 12AX7, 2 x 12AT7 valves
  • Power amp - 2 x 6L6 valves
  • Solid state rectifier
  • Birch/ pine cabinet
  • Two channels - Vintage and Custom with Bassman Tone Stack circuit
  • 2 button Footswitch included
