Well, this one uses unashamedly old technology, albeit with a bit of a twist, but it certainly scores very heavily on the latter point.
Fender’s Princeton model, the smallest of their dual 6V6–based combos, has been through a number of iterations in its lifetime, but it was the iconic ‘Blackface’ model that Fender chose to recreate as part of their Vintage Reissue Series.

Greg is a long time Fender collector who is very knowledgeable not only in the details, but in the circuitry as well.We combined all of our information into a computerized database for this project and for the past 18 months have been slowly (sadly, very slowly) gathering information that we collect ourselves as well as from other people. What we need is the following: 1) Model name 2) Model number on the tube chart 3) Date code letters on the tube chart 4) Speaker codes (if speaker is original) 5) Transformer codes (if the amp doesn't have date codes on the tube chart) 6) Cosmetic features (flat/raised logo, tweed/tolex, blackface/silverface, rough/ smooth blond tolex, white/skirted knobs, TV-front/wide-panel, etc.) One very interesting and very important factoid has surfaced regarding the date code letters on the tube chart.In the fall of 1965, Fender switched from stamping these numbers in black ink, to dark green ink.Mic is not responsible for the content, just the collection.Fender Fender Transformer Codes From BREME–(at)–Sat Jan 13 CST 1996 Article: 77538 of rec.music.makers.guitar From: BREME–(at)–(THOMAS BREMER) Subject: RE: Silverface Deluxe Rev Questions Date: 13 Jan 96 -0800 References: Newsgroups: rec.music.makers.guitar Organization: The Microsoft Network (msn.com) Lines: 34 Heres a quick way to date Fender amps (’60-82).
