Deluxe Amplification 5E3 "’59 Tweed"
There is really nothing quite like a real 5E3! This is the REAL thing. It is not a delicate museum piece but a road-worthy, spotlight-ready, tone monster! Built from all top-shelf components to bring you one of the greatest amps ever made. The cabinet is built in-house with solid finger-joined 3/4” pine and a void-free 3/8” baltic birch speaker baffle. The sparkle tolex, racing stripes, and white piping are the icing on the cake. This is a hand-built, hand-wired, 5E3! A "standby" switch has been added and the circuit has been updated with a properly grounded and polarized ac plug.
This amp has the perfect combination of classic tweed tone with custom styling. This amp cooks. Great dynamic range. Tons of usable tones. The AlNiCo Celestion Blue is the perfect match for this amp and it breaks up gloriously when dimed but can be dialed back for smooth and articulate playing. Dig in and blow them away! Love it! Great for blues/jazz/funk/country AND is the quintessential rock amp.
