Dating Fender Tube Amps By Serial Number, Part 2 by Greg Gagliano Copyright 1997, 20th Century Guitar Magazine.It's been about 6 months since Part 1 of this series was printed so I thought it would be a good time to give an update on the Fender amp research that I am doing along with Devin Riebe and Greg Huntington.Likewise, the brown/blonde Tremolux, Concert, Vibrasonic, Twin, Pro, Super, Vibrolux, Showman, Dual Showman, and Bandmaster used a sequential numbering independent of model, but as with Fender guitars, these were not used consecutively. The 1956 to 1963 Champ, Harvard, Princeton, Deluxe; the 1956 to 1960 Vibrolux, the 1956 to 1964 Bassman, and all the tube reverb units have their own serialization scheme.
For example, serial number A00121 has been found on a Champ dated November 1964 and a Vibrolux Reverb dated February 1965.
This makes things a little more interesting and difficult in playing the "dating game." And yet there is another variable to contend with as it appears that models that share chassis may also share the same serialization scheme.
For instance, the Bandmaster Reverb and Super Reverb share the same chassis, and the Twin Reverb, Quad Reverb, Dual Showman Reverb, Vibrosonic Reverb, and Super Six all share the same chassis.
The factory realized its mistake in February because these amps have a "PB" date code in black ink.
Now, we obviously haven't looked at every amp made in January 1966 so this isn't set in stone.
