FACTOIDS & TRIVIA

In 1968, Fender Musical Intruments decided to offer two piggyback amps with reverb. One of these, the Bandmaster Reverb, was not at all like the blackface piggyback non-reverb Bandmasters of 1963-67. Rather, the earliest Bandmaster Reverbs (model AA768) had circuits that were identical to the short-lived (and often loathed) model AB568 Super Reverb of 1968-69. This particular amp was converted from the AB768 Bandmaster Reverb circuit to the AB763 Super Reverb circuit for enhanced tonal quality.  In addition, this amp is the earliest Bandmaster Reverb encountered during my Fender amp research.
