The tweed Fender Champ amplifier is one of the greatest amps of all time and has been a favorite of recording studios and artists for over 60 years. They sound amazing!

I started this because I own several vintage tweed Fender Champ amplifiers and I absolutely love them.  I’ve found it to be tedious to locate accurate information about vintage tweed Champ specs and features with good photos highlighting things a collector or enthusiast should be looking for.

I plan on posting regularly with hi-res photos detailing each element of interest using my 1959 Fender Champ as a reference point.

Feedback or corrections are encouraged.

If you have a tweed Fender Champ and you’d like to share photos on this blog, I’d love to hear from you on Twitter or Facebook.

    So I purchased what i believe is a 1957 Champ today. Where can I send images and some questions for you? Everything looks good on this one. I was thrown a little by the location of the serial number (under chasis) and the fact that one number does not show well on the speaker. The Serial number on the Tube Chart is C – 03672.

    This is a really helpful web site for those of us interested in Fender Champs.

    Will send images as soon as you tell me where to upload and send.

    BTW, is there a place to buy vintage tubes for these amps?
