INTRODUCTION
Your “new” ‘65 DELUXE REVERB amplifier is living
proof of the quality and longevity of Fender
amplifier designs.
Of all the Fender amplifiers produced over the past
40 years, the Deluxe Reverb has probably been
used on more recordings than any other amplifier
in history. Over the years, Deluxe Reverbs have
proven to be incredibly versatile, used for surf,
rock, blues, soul, country and everything in
between. In fact, many early hard rock and heavy
metal recordings were done with the Deluxe
Reverb because of its great natural distortion
characteristics, an unintended feature at the time.
Whatever the playing style, the Deluxe Reverb has
always been able to produce “the right sound”.
Your new ‘65 DELUXE REVERB is a faithful
reproduction of an original 1965 Deluxe Reverb
(model AB763 for historical or technical types).
Every effort has been made to keep the pre-amp
and power amp circuits exactly like the original.
For improved reliability and manufacturing
efficiency, a printed circuit board for the
components is used in place of the original “Leo
board” style phenolic parts panel used in the older
Fender amplifiers for many years. The power and
output transformers used in the ‘65 DELUXE
REVERB are built to the original specifications
which were still in the Fender R&D department
files. Some components used in this re-issue
amplifier are different in size and shape from the
earlier version, but the component values are
identical.
The ‘65 DELUXE REVERB is 22 watts, like the
original. This model (AB 763) is often referred to
as a “Black-face Deluxe Reverb” (because of the
control panel’s color) and was first introduced in
1964 and continued until mid 1968 when the
control panel was changed to silver swirl look that
lasted through 1980.
The speaker in the ‘65 DELUXE REVERB is a
duplicate of the original Jensen 12 inch “Specially
Designed for Fender” speaker used for many years
during the I960s.
Please note, if you compare a new ‘65 DELUXE
REVERB with an original model, the two units may
sound slightly different. Remember that the speaker
and filter capacitors in the original are over 25
years old and their performance has changed over
the years.
It is suggested you read this manual thoroughly to
understand all the features and functions of the
amplifier. The purchase of a Fender amplifier will
provide years of musical enjoyment and the ‘65
DELUXE REVERB helps keep the Fender legend
going strong.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR
SHOCK HAZARD, DO NOT EXPOSE AMPLIFIER
TO RAIN OR MOISTURE!

tube life.
LINE CORD
Your amplifier is equipped with a grounding type
supply cord to reduce the possibility of shock
hazard. Be sure to connect it to a grounded AC
receptacle. DO NOT ALTER THE AC PLUG.
TUBES The ‘65 DELUXE REVERB tube complement
consists of one Fender Special Design 5AR4 (part
number 041400), two Fender Special Design
6V6GTs (part number 023564), four Fender
Special Design 12AX7As (part number 013341),
and two Fender Special Design 12AT7s (part
number 023531). Fender’s Special Design Tubes
provide optimum performance in this amplifier. For
best results, replace with Fender original equipment
tubes only. Tube location is printed on the tube label
located inside the cabinet.
BIAS ADJUSTMENT The control on the chassis
underside is a factory adjustment only. Should the
bias need adjusting, it should be performed by your
authorized Fender Service Center.
BLACK TOLEX COVERING CARE The exclusive
Fender trouble covering on your cabinet is
especially designed to provide years of lasting
beauty. A very light soapy solution on a sponge
may be used to remove dirt and residue that may
accumulate in the grain. Be careful not to let any
liquid come in contact with operating surfaces. DO
NOT have the amplifier plugged into a power outlet
when cleaning.
TROUBLESHOOTER’S CHECKLIST
If the amplifier is set up but does not function, check the following items:
• Is the power cord properly plugged into an electrical outlet?
• Is there power at the outlet? Is the fuse blown?
• Is the speaker properly connected to the amplifier?
• Is the amp on standby?
• Are all the control knobs turned above four?
• Is the volume control on the instrument turned up?
• Is the instrument properly plugged into the amplifier?
(Eliminate any effects pedals and try another guitar cord.)
if, after checking all of the above, the system is still not
working correctly, consult your Fender Service Dealer.
