On the Inside
The original all-tube 5E3 circuit is renowned for its early-onset distortion and highly interactive controls—a little experimentation unlocks a world of tonal treats for your ears. The classic design is updated with improved volume pot tapers, offering more precise control at low settings used for rich, mellow clean tone from the Instrument and Mic channels.

Stylish and classic design
Period-accurate appointments include a lacquered tweed covering and a top-mounted control panel with easy access to the highly responsive chickenhead control knobs—all housed in a durable cabinet. With timeless looks and premium vintage sound, the ’57 Custom Deluxe delivers everything a guitarist’s heart could desire. Includes a protective cover.
Here's what Fender say about the 57 range
Fender’s late 1950s family of amps, known as the “Narrow Panel Tweed” models, represented the height of amplifier technology and tone for that time. Their all-tube circuitry, resonant cabinetry, and player-centric feature set combine for what might be the perfect example of beautiful clean tone that can be easily pushed into harmonically rich warm distortion. Six decades later, they continue to be highly prized by professional guitarists and collectors alike. The Fender ‘57 Custom Series comprises of four distinct models, three of which will be familiar to today’s Fender fan. The new ‘57 CUSTOM CHAMP, ‘57 CUSTOM DELUXE, and ‘57 CUSTOM TWIN have all been thoughtfully modified from previous ’57 reissues, employing custom vintage tone capacitors, 12AY7 preamp tubes, and more. A fourth model, the ‘57 CUSTOMPRO-AMP, has never been reissued before. A medium-powered unit, its 15-inch speaker creates unique throaty tones with huge bottom end, yet it has plenty of highs for sparkling electric guitar tone production.
Each ’57 Custom model hits a specific spot in the range, to cover applications from studio to stage to arena. These amplifiers can provide perfect re-creation of historic guitar tones, or can be used as a firm foundation for creating new sounds.
