The modern edition of one of the greatest guitar amps ever made. The mighty 4×10″ Bassman began life as a bass amp before guitar players discovered its sonic wonders and adopted it as their own. Prized by guitarists everywhere for more than half a century now, it lives on as a must-have guitar amp treasured for its pure sound, workhorse reliability, classic style and uncluttered ease of use. Countless guitar players have rediscovered the great simple pleasure of plugging into this amp, and today’s ’59 Bassman® LTD delivers wide stage coverage, touch-sensitive dynamics and full-frequency tone that make it perfect for building great sound with any guitar and effect. A Fender classic then and now.

Simply put, there’s really nothing quite like the pure, powerful sound of a Fender tube amplifier. For decades, the tonal richness and touch-sensitive dynamics of real tubes have given Fender amps a defining and unmistakable voice, as heard on most professional recordings and performances of the past 60 years—the music you’ve known your whole life.
CLASSIC TWEED TONE
Heard on countless recordings since the 1950s, this is the timeless guitar amp tone of the original-era tweed-covered Fender amps and their tweed descendents from every decade since, with remarkable touch sensitivity and sound that really comes alive when cranked.
ASSEMBLED IN THE U.S.A.
Just like the great Fender guitar amps of the 1950s and ’60s that founded our amp legacy and defined the essence of pure tone and power, this amplifier is assembled in the United States.
For a timeless air of vintage-style authenticity straight from the original 1950s golden age of Fender amps, this amplifier is smartly clad in a classic tweed covering that never goes out of style.
Jensen® and Fender go way back—to the very beginning, in fact. Jensen® speakers are the traditional Fender speakers, with sweet articulation for clean sounds and cool vintage-style breakup when pushed.
FINGER-JOINED SOLID PINE CABINET
Solid pine was a traditional Fender amp construction hallmark of the 1950s and ’60s, making for more resonant and more “musical” speaker cabinets. The finger-joined construction used here makes for even stronger and more rugged durability.
