1968 was a transitional year for Fender amps, with tone that was still pure Fender, but a look that was brand new. With a silver-and-turquoise front panel and classy aluminum "drip edge" grille cloth trim, the Vibrolux Reverb received a fresh new face as it remained the compact, gig-ready amp of choice for pros and amateurs everywhere. The 1968 Vibrolux Reverb featured a unique 2x10 speaker configuration, which delivered snappy twang and big tube tone, while still incorporating world-class Fender reverb and vibrato effects. For countless guitarists ever since, the Vibrolux Reverb has been the go-to amp for classic Fender tone.
The ?68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb Amp pays tribute to the classic look, sound and performance of Fender?s late-?60s ?silver-face? amps. In a special twist, both channels boast reverb and tremolo, and the ?custom? channel has a modified Bassman¸ tone stack that gives modern players greater tonal flexibility with pedals. The amp also features quicker gain onset and reduced negative feedback for greater touch sensitivity. While fitting a sweet spot between the Deluxe Reverb and Twin Reverb, in respect to power and size, the ?68 Custom Vibrolux Reverb's dual 10" Celestion¸ TEN 30 configuration and 35 watts of all-tube power deliver distinctive rock 'n' roll flavor.
