No proof that it exists.

Interesting.

So Fender makes a limited run of 150 of these amps and makes no mention of them on their web site and no announcement in the forums like they do other new products. None of the major dealers list them (Guitar Center, Sam Ash, Sweetwater), yet some place like "nstuffmusic" gets them? Seems to me something like that would be a big deal.

I know that fender makes FSR guitars for all the big chain stores and leaves it to them to advertise. I guess it also applies to amps now, cool.

I've never heard of nstuffmusic. I e-mailed them asking if they have it in stock and how much. Not planning on buying, just confirming its existence. Seems odd that a single, family owned store would get something that is limited to 150 units. Maybe all they received is one. :lol:

Bill, not all that odd. Back a few years a Music Store I worked at in the late 80's had a "Bill Carson" Strat model done up. The Music Trader is now no longer in business, but they were a "Mom and Pop" and a fine Fender Dealer. The owner was profiled a couple times in Vintage Guitar Magazine for not only the Bill Carson Model (Bill was the South East US Rep for Fender and a good friend of the owner) but he also had many Very Low serial numbered Custom Shop guitars from when they first started the CS. I owned one of those Bill Carson Strats and they were magnificent...but too pretty to be played, ended up selling it, but great guitar... and now they seemed to have done that very same thing with their amps. Having a Deluxe as a head sounds like a great idea! Who knows maybe if all goes well this becomes a standard thing...if enough of a buzz is created about them for Fender to get the hint.

Mojotone and others make it easy enough to do. Any cupcake with a screwdriver and knowledge of how to use it can make that happen.

May have worked that way back then, but not now.

Dealers have to take a certain number of the other amps (mustangs, Hot Rods, reissues) before they're allowed to have limited runs. Heck, the Eric Clapton tweed amp series was sold only to dealers taking the full line of amps.

Doubt that Fender is doing this series, and highly doubt that if they were they'd go to some no name company vs. one of their top national retailers, like Wildwood (who does enough volume to have their own CS series), Sweetwater, or even a Truetone.

Perhaps converting a battered SFDR into a piggyback head is a project for next year...

E-mail I received from nstuffmusic.com:

"The Fender 65 Deluxe Reverb is $959.99 with free shipping. Use coupon code: fender35 at check out to receive this price. We have them in stock and there is a one day special today only June 3rd you can get a extra 10% off which would make the amp $863.99 if you use both coupon codes: fender35 and fenderday2013 at check out. Any other questions let me know.

Thank you,
Jason Sarra"

The e-mail above does not mention that the amp they have in stock is a "head". Google search shows nstuffmusic.com to be the only place listing a "Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb Head". Very strange.

I guess I was wrong.

Not sure why they used the older dogbone collar vs. the standard one...

The listing in that link seems pretty detailed to be a mere hoax......right down to the correctly-formatted FSR model number.

NStuffMusic is gaining a pretty good reputation. I wouldn't doubt them. 150 is pretty limited number and they probably were the first to receive the heads.

I wonder how a '65 Deluxe Reverb Head would sound like through a Marshall 1936 with Greenbacks? Not sure but my Hot Rod Deluxe sounded decent through it.
