1966 Fender Vibrochamp

Garrett Park Guitars

This guitar is in our Hall of Fame Collection and is no longer available for purchase.

For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1966 Fender Vibrochamp.

This '66 Vibrochamp is in excellent working condition and sounds great.  We had our tech, Gary Wright, look it over carefully and he cleaned all the potentiometers and tube sockets. We did NOT change the filter caps or resistors but will do so at the buyers request.

A little information from

By 1964 the vibrato had become de rigeur for the Fender line.  With the introduction of the “blackface” series, a new deluxe version of the venerableChamp was also released with the effect built into the amp.  This new model was dubbed the Vibro Champ.  Throughout its 19-year history, starting in 1964 and culminating in 1982, the Vibro Champ and its simpler sibling held down the low-end of the line and introduced many a beginning guitarist to the Fender line.

The new Vibro Champ joined the rest of Fender’s new “blackface” line, so called because the amps had black faceplates, black knobs, black handles and black tolex covering.  Fender added a silver grill cloth to give this line a new, high contrast look.  But what really distinguished the blackfaces was their new sparkley sound.  Guitarists also found they could turn up the volume and get a decent crunch tone.  Fender’s new amps were popular and production numbers at its Fullerton CA factory increased every year.
