Ceriatone's Custom built tribute to the Fender 5E3 Tweed boutique guitar amp has captured the spirit and soul of the original. 15 watts of pure Class A power. This amp has been heard on hundreds of hits from the 50's to today. One of the most widely used vintage amps in the world.

The 5E3 (aka Narrow Panel Deluxe) is well known for it's early breakup and somewhat dark sound. Sort of Neil Young sounding. But surpisingly, it also has some very warm clean tones for jazz and blues. Some say it is a little bottom end heavy for 15 watts, but that is subjective, as is tone in general. Produced from 1955-1960.

Note: PPIMV mounted on Front Panel will be either mounted in place of pilot lamp (Marshall styles) or a hole will be drilled (OTS styles).
          PPIMV mounted on Rear Panel will always be in place of a Speaker Output Jack.

Custom Cover Available ($55)

Each amp is 100% hand built, hand wired point to point, and then is thoroughly tested and burned in before it is shipped to you. For this reason it takes approx. 6-8 weeks for your amp to be built and shipped. Options can add 1-2 weeks to the "standard" build time.
