Mid-1968 Super Reverb export model modified by Hagstrm for the Swedish market.

Also note the vertical black lines on the control panel (found on earliest silverface amps) and the large ceramic power resistors coming off the power tube sockets which indicates the AB568 circuit. But really, these cabs were large because they were of a “special design” that “greatly improves tone and volume without distortion, and permits optimum performance of the speakers.” At least that’s the reason according to the ’69 catalog.

Also, another thing I’ve never seen before is a what appears to be a shipping tag of some sort (see photo).

I remember two 'suits' from upstairs standing behind me occasionally doing time studies.

They actually held clipboards and stopwatches to measure how long it took for me to attach various parts.

One has to wonder where all those factory original export back panels are! Another interesting tidbit is that a lot of Fenders were imported into Australia in the late 1950s and early 1960s that were stock 110-volt (domestic US) units.

The Australian Fender Distributor then installed 240V - 110V stepdown transformers in the bottom of the cabinets.Since the new owner would have likely removed this tag immediately upon arriving home, I’m amazed that the one in the photo has remained intact since mid-1968!Along with dating amps by serial numbers, we were interested in determining production totals, if possible. I promise the tables will still be there after you finish reading. Okay, I know you’re all just dying to skip ahead to the serial number tables but try to contain your excitement and read through the article first.A 1957 tweed Vibrolux was reported with a tube chart printed with circuit “5E3” (tweed Deluxe) instead of the correct 5F11 (see photo).Clearly Fender wasn’t afraid to use incorrect parts when they were in a bind. The 5G12 Concert is the earliest version from very late 1959 and early 1960 so the existence of a tweed example, while extremely rare, is certainly plausible since Fender was making lots of tweed amps during the same time period.They were something to behold, all chatting away while soldering so quickly, it didn't hardly seem like they were looking at the amps.After that the foreman would add the tubes, turn 'em on and set the bias.” Export models – We’ve confirmed that Fender amps were distributed by Hagstrm in Sweden.These are marked with EIA code “831” and are most prevalent during the 1966-68 time period.Some examples include a '66 Princeton Reverb and ’66 Pro Reverb with Better Coil output transformer, a ‘66 Deluxe Reverb and ‘67 Twin Reverb with Better Coil reverb transformer, and a 1968 Vibro Champ with Better Coil trannies.
