Tweed Fender Champ 5C1 Serial Number 6871
We have a 5C1 model Fender Champ today, serial number 6871. This serial number tells us this amp was made some time in early 1954. The date code stamp is a little out of focus on this great shot of the tube chart. It looks like DA which indicated january 1954. We are lucky enough to have a shot of the speaker code which is 395 402. The 402 part of the code means that the speaker was made in 1954 and the 02 indicates the second week. I haven’t been able to track down which speaker manufacturer corresponds to the 395 code, if anyone knows give me a shout.
