Many believe they were lay-out reference lines that were never intended to make it into production; that makes sense since they only appeared for about the first 4-6 months.
At any rate, these lines are a great clue that your amp is one of the earliest with the silverface cosmetics, many of which were otherwise UNCHANGED from the blackface design. This Deluxe Reverb was listed on Craigslist as a “70’s Silverface”.
Yep, I gladly handed over the 5 asking price :-)Now, when you hear someone state that all drip edge Fender amps are 1968s, please set them straight!
From BREME–(at)–Sat Jan 13 CST 1996 Article: 77538 of rec.music.makers.guitar From: BREME–(at)–(THOMAS BREMER) Subject: RE: Silverface Deluxe Rev Questions Date: 13 Jan 96 -0800 References: Path: utexas.edu! By 1968 deluxes usually left with CTS/EMINANCE speakers (Jensen had closed down) Once in awhile you can see the EIA code, CTS-starts with a #137-sometimes these are under the doughnut fender speaker label.
These amps can really be “sleepers” as most are in every way a blackface amp with silverface cosmetics.
There is no clear consensus as to why these lines exist; they appear just before the Volume controls and on either side of the amps name.
You should be able to find a number stamped somewhere on the speaker’s frame.
They are non-symmetrical both vertically as well as horizontally and are extremely thin compared to all other lines.Fender has used only a handful of different speaker types over the years.Here’s a list of brands along with their EIA codes.From the one picture with the ad, I could see the drip edge and black lines, and new she was probably a 1967.When I saw the amp in person, I confirmed that it was indeed a ’67 from the serial number, AB763 tube chart, and blackface footswitch.
someone said their drip-edge Bassman was a 1968 because “that’s the only year they made drip-edge amps”. And by the way, just in case you don’t know, the term “drip-edge” refers to the aluminum trim surrounding the grill cloth on the earliest silver-face Fender amps (see highlighted drip-edge in the photo above). Are y’all ready to settle this question once and forever? Okay, to be fair, dude WAS partially correct, in as much as that 1968 was the only FULL year of production for the drip-edge models.
