Tweed Fender Champ – C 7484
Today we have a mid-50s tweed Fender Champ. This is the wide panel model, as opposed to the narrow panel of later models. With a serial number of C 7484, we can date this to 1954 looking at the great article by Greg Gagliano. The numbering is slightly different for this model since it is a 5C1 (the third circuit revision of the Champ model – more on this later). With a tube chart code of DE we know that this was made in May of 1954. Check out the tin foil stuffed in the fuse holder. Not a recommended practice in any era! This amp recently sold for $577.
