condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Fender
model name / number: Blues Junior III
T40 Upgrades Include: electrolytic power capacitors replaced and upgraded to F&Ts, metal 1/4" Switchcraft input jack instead of the flimsy plastic jack attached to the PCB, tube socket board has been upgraded from the cheap plastic one that is known to break and short to a "Borish"ceramic board that will be good for a lifetime. In addition, the stock reverb has been upgraded so that you have better control and less spring noise, and power tubes have been changed to a new matched pair for incredible tone and sustain. This version has the familiar Vintage Dog Bone handle instead of the plastic strap. The main upgrades that make this amp incredible are the "Fromel" mods to the tone circuit making this amp sound more like a 12" Princeton Reverb with more clean lows, less boxy, and still shimmering high end with bass, treble and mid controls that give a more usable range of tones for any type of player. Together these mods make this Blues Junior come alive with the Celestion 12" A-Type Speaker. The Bias Circuit on the EL 84 power tubes also has been changed to run at the proper level to keep them from overheating and shortened life expectancy. All work on this amp comes with a lifetime guarantee from T40 Vintage Lab. Was $650. Now $550, OBO.

If you would like your Blues Junior upgraded with these same Mods. The cost is approximately $275 depending on your amps condition, includes labor and parts. Speaker and tubes not included.
