The perfect amp for steel guitarists, jazz players, surf music, country, Western swing, and anyone else who wants clear, clean guitar tone at its best.

The clean sounds of the Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Combo Amp are loud, clear and strong. This custom version of the '65 Twin Reverb utilizes the 85W chassis of the original, coupled with a slightly modified cabinet and a single 15" speaker instead of the standard pair of 12s. The speaker is based on the JBL D130F used by Fender in the '60s and '70s. Its cast frame, shallow cone, and large voice coil deliver the clean, precise tone characteristic of the Twin but with a fatter bottom end and smooth treble. It also has higher power handling. Black, heavy-duty textured vinyl covering, silver grille cloth, nickel hardware, and a metal badge identifying the model. 2-button footswitch, removable casters, and an embroidered cover are included.

Guitarists interested in the Texas blues sound should check out the Fender '64 Vibroverb Custom (product# 483710).

Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Review

By Garland Frye

from Winchester, VA

Comments about Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Combo Amp:

I've owned my Fender Twin 65 Custom for several years, so this isn't a honeymoon review. I play on & off with some fellow local players as well as at church songs ranging from Pop to Texas Country Rock, all of the way to Praise & Worship. My main function has always been rhythm; my dad calls me 'Guitar George' (Sultans of Swing reference for those that missed it). Ok, enough about me - let's get down to what we're here for. The layout and controls of this amp are the same as your standard Fender Twin Reverb amp, the exception is that this amp has a single 15" speaker as opposed to the regular 2-12" speakers found in a Twin. The 15" speaker adds more bass/depth to your tone while also evenly projecting your output so that it eliminates the typical 'hot spots' on stage. This feature alone is worth the extra cost as this amp produces a smooth tone that isnt as brittle as some of the other Fender amps out there. With all Fender amps, this one is very loud and has no problem keeping up the various types of bandmates; half stack junkies, over excited drummers, powerhouse bass players, etc (we all know the types). As with most Fender amps, you get a super clean/even sound and if you push it, you'll have a nice breakup going on - the downside being that you need it to be loud in order to get the full effect...so that means for most situations you'll need a really good set of ear plugs or a nice attenuator. This really isn't an issue because as most of us know, Fender amps are made for pedals. With the added 15", your effects will have more oomph and clarity than normal (that's a very good thing)...this particular amp handles overdrive pedals very nicely. The best tone to me is a P-90 equipped solidbody with a Keeley Katana Boost w/the Overdrive circuit engaged...tonal...er...total heaven. You get a nice smooth overdrive that cleans up well with your volume control. Another plus for this amp is that it handles various pickups nicely...especially single coil pickups...you always get the true sound of your guitar. Basically you spend more time playing than tweaking your amp trying to get a usable tone. This is my 'go-to' amp for my Gretsch and Strat - both of which my Marshall really has a hard time with. Since this is a Twin 'Reverb' amplifier, I have to mention its reverb. On this amp, you get the always great Fender spring reverb - you really can't beat that true Fender reverb sound, very classic - you can go from a 'slight' setting all of the way to 'Timmy's in the well' - awesome. As with any amp, you do have 'issues' or things that could be better...for this amp there are a couple worth noting. First off, this amp is rather heavy...not one that you'd want to be toting up & down a set of stairs every weekend. The second issue is that the Tremolo circuit even at its slowest setting is still way too fast. My dad's original Twin Reverb's tremolo can go much slower than this current model. The tremolo does sound very good but not having the ability to go slower makes the effect void for me (that's ok for me as I've come to rely on a pedal for this effect but that might not be the case for you). I do have to note that as mentioned before, I play mainly rhythm with various guitars over the years including a Fender Stratocaster, Fender B-Bender & American Deluxe Telecasters, PRS Soapbar, Gibson Les Paul Standard, Gretsch Tennessee Rose, Guild Starfire III, etc but that I've also had the pleasure of letting my dad use this for his double neck Sho-Bud Pedal Steel Guitar. To me, this blows away the current industry standard 'solid state' steel guitar amps that are out there. I've always preferred the sound of a Tube amp over a Solid State amp. If you play steel, you should really check this amp out. In closing, if you're looking at getting a Fender Twin, you should really do a side by side comparison w/its cousin the 65 Twin Custom. Having that 'extra' sound from the 15" speaker could be difference maker that you've been searching for. Pros: handles pedals very well, 15" speaker adds depth & clarity, classic fender Reverb & crystal clear sound Cons: heavy, tremolo is too fast

ONE GREAT AMP

By BillM

from Taylor, MI

Comments about Fender '65 Twin Custom 15 Combo Amp:

I have had the Fender 65 Twin Custom 15 Reverb-Amp for six months. The clean sound on this amp is as good as it gets. Since it's a Fender, it goes without saying on how good the reverb is. Not only can you play this amp clean. With the 15inch speaker it get's great low dirty sounds. I use a simple RB50 pedal with a Digitech delay and a boss super chorus pedals. No matter what sound I am looking for this amp can produce it with quality. Playing gigs will be no problem in any club.
