1959 Tweed Fender Champ Jewel Light

The 1959 tweed Fender Champ amplifier features a cool looking red jewel light to indicate that it is on.  This same jewel light shows up on just about every amp Fender made from this period. It screws into the lightbulb housing.

The lightbulb itself is quite interesting.  To get it out you push down on it slightly and give it about an eighth of a turn and it pops right out.
