For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1964 Fender Vibroverb.

This Vibroverb came to us with replaced grill cloth, so we sent it out to our friend David Edwards, of Edwards amps in Alabama who regrilled it expertly aging the cloth to match the wear of the amp. Internally the amp remains original with its original transformers and has only received new period correct capacitors. It comes with the upgraded JBL D-130F, and footswitch as well as the capacitors which were replaced. This Vibroverb sounds awesome and is in perfect working order. The Vibroverb was one of the preferred amps that Stevie Ray Vaughan used.

The Fender Vibroverb  was a 40-watt combo guitar amplifier originally manufactured in 1963 and 1964. It was the first Fender amp to incorporate on-board  reverb which later became a standard feature on many high-end Fender tube amps.

The blackface Vibroverb was a departure from the earlier brown model in that it had a 15" speaker, and was given the new blackface cosmetics and somewhat different circuitry (AA763). Still rated at 40 watts, the new design possessed the new blackface "optical coupler" vibrato circuit (in place of the tweed-style vibrato found in its immediate predecessor), and a bright switch.

Gone also were the two ten-inch Oxford speakers; in their place was a single fifteen-inch speaker, both Jensen and JBL (available as an extra cost option).

Production on the blackface Vibroverb was discontinued in late 1964.
