Hi,

Having some problems dating a Fender Twin Reverb silverface and would appreciate any info on dating

I have extracted the following details from the the amp:

Serial stamped on chassis 'F091028' then in ink below it '0804'

Power supply
013830
EIA 606-013
CSA 827

Small transformer (tiny)
022927
EIA 606-022

Any info appreciated

Cheers

Harry

If the amp is a 135-watt ultra-linear chassis with push-pull master-volume boost control, the tranny numbers indicate it was made in the spring of 1980, which I believe was the last year of production.
