1959 Tweed Fender Champ Grill Cloth

2009 September 12

My 1959 tweed Fender Champ amplifier features an “oxblood” plastic grill cloth.  It has alternating horizontal strands of brown, red and gold.  This is a change from the earlier narrow panel model amps where the grill cloth was a single tone brown cotton/linen.

You can see from the photo, that the weave pattern is quite interesting.  From a distance, the yellow strands almost look like uninterrupted lines, but upon closer examination you can see the alternating nature of the weave.
