Fender Announces new George Benson signature amp and enclosure.
Guitarists of all kinds play through Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amplifiers. Rockers, pop stars, cowboys and more all agree that they deliver unmistakable Fender tone--perfect amps for crafting your own sound, and extremely responsive to your favorite stomp-box effects. The GB Hot Rod Deluxe is a 40-watt 1x12" combo especially fine-tuned for world-famous jazz guitar virtuoso and pop artist George Benson. It has the full bottom end characteristic of 6L6 tubes, and a versatile all-tube preamp--including a 12AT7 up front for cleaner tone; especially with humbucking pickups. A 100-watt Jensen C12K speaker handles the immediacy of Benson's singing soloing style with clarity and range, and the solid-pine cabinet increases tonal resonance while reducing weight. Standard features include clean and "drive/more-drive" channels, resounding Fender spring reverb, effects loop and more. Personalized exterior touches specified by Benson himself include gray-black vinyl covering, silver-strand grille cloth and "GB" logo badge. Road-worthy deluxe padded cover and two-button footswitch included. Separate matching 1x12" extension enclosure adds output, fullness and stage coverage.
