FACTOIDS & TRIVIA
The Fender Deluxe Amp, model 5B3, received a cosmetic makeover in 1952.
The new style cabinet is often referred to as the “wide panel” cabinet.
The 5B3 circuit in the wide panel cabinet only lasted until mid-1954,
after which the 5C3 circuit emerged. The 5C3 differed from its predecessor
by virtue of a negative feedback loop which the 5B3 lacked.
