In late 1967, Fender gave their amplifiers a makeover. The blackface cosmetics were replaced with silverface cosmetics. In mid-1968, changes were made in the circuits of most models as well. The Super Reverb pictured here is from mid-1968 and has the dreaded AB568 circuit that gave the silverface Fender amps their bad reputation. However, $2.00 in parts and 20 minutes of soldering time is all that is needed to convert from the silverface circuit to the more desireable blackface circuit.
