Featuring ultra rare Fender chrome cabinet rack! The 2×12” Bassman appeared in mid-1963, with a numbered black (“blackface”) control panel, white cylindrical knobs, smooth white Tolex covering, gold sparkle grille cloth and a raised Fender logo (with tail)—a sharp but short-lived look. By mid-1964, it had black Tolex covering and silver sparkle grille cloth; the first of these still had white knobs, but these were very quickly replaced by black knobs that were both numbered and skirted. This model (AA864) had substantially different circuitry than its predecessors—the “presence” control was removed, and “bright” and “deep” switches were added.
