Serial Number: There is no information readily available for dating Fender amps by serial number but there are people working on it. Circuit Code: In 1963 Fender stoped using model numbers to identify schematics and began using the model name and an assigned circuit number.
These circuit numbers which are located on the tube chart can be usefull for getting a rough date on an amp.
Out of the box the silverfaces and blackfaces will fit many occasions and are therefore not widely discussed in terms of serious mods like, for instance, the Princeton Reverb.
Still, they are vintage amps requiring service and maintenance.
If it’s a one digit year you need to determine the correct decade of the amp some other way.
ZZ = a number from 1 – 52 indicating the week of the year.
If possible, open up the chassis and check a few of the pots’ and capacitors’ manufacturer codes.
The EIA code will consist of 3 numbers followed by a date code of 3 or 4 numbers designating the year and the week.
Its strength lies in the sweetness and early breakup caused by the smaller transformers than the Super Reverb, Vibroverb and Pro Reverb.
The Vibrolux is quite similar to the Pro Reverb 2×12″ except for the smaller speakers, output transformer and power transformer. 10″s provide a more scooped, responsive, punchy and sparkling sound than 12 inch speakers.
The code follows the format: XXXYY ZZ where: XXX = a two or three (possibly four on newer amps) digit number indicating the manufacturer.
(see chart below) YY = is a one or two digit code indicating the year.
