Tweed Fender Champ 5F1 C-09095

Tweed Fender Champ 5F1 C-09095 Front
I’ve got photos of another great vintage Fender Champ for your enjoyment today. Tweed Fender Champ serial number C-09095 is a 5F1 model Champ. This serial number tells us this amp was made in early 1959.  The tube chart code is IB which tells us that it was manufactured in February 1959.

It looks like it has its original power cord and the speaker has the City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety sticker on it (that orange circle).

The chassis looks a little rough.  Like the chrome is fairly pitted and the handle looks like it is freyed.  The tweed looks to be in pretty good shape with no major tears.  The capacitors have been professionally changed to  “Atom” capacitors.
