Hi guys, I've searched the forum and couldn't really find anything about priceing my 68 deluxe rev. Hoping for some suggestions!?

vitals:
--its a 68
--drip edge "deluxe reverb-amp" on face plate
--perfect working order, previous cap job/brite cap cut.
--orig. cts spkr has been reconed (blew up on a gig !!!...best sound til it gave up ! lol)
--ex. cosmetic condition.

I'm thinking of selling and would love to know a ball park value.!

thanks alot in advance for any help.

Usually between $1100.-$1400. if original transformers are intact and overall excellent cosmetic condition. Just for a gauge, my friend sold an original '67 silverface in excellent condition, about 2 months ago, for $1350.

thanks for chiming in everyone.... any more opinions???....that's quite the range...??

re: CTS: come to think of it, that is a good pnt....the cage holes on this one are elongated slots, aren't the oxfords or utah's with holes in the cage that are rounder ?? it says fender musical instruments special design speaker.

I sold one just like it 2 years ago for $1K. It should be worth a couple hundred more now. Be sure to provide gut shots. That helps to sell it. People want to know how original the internals are. Provide all transformer and speaker codes too.

It has the black lines on the front panel which means it's early 68 and most likely an AB763. My 68 is the same vintage.

I've owned this amp forever and thought it was cts, there ya go oxford.

does this help any of you with a tighter valuation estimate. It seems folks are quite devided in price estimations.

ssdeluxe -- thanks. The description on the site describes the basis of the data.

As far as tighter valuation, estimate, outside of that data, it's speculative. You really can't get any "tighter" than that because the value of a vintage amp all depends upon who's looking at it, how badly they want it, and how much money they have to spend. This can change week to week. The data on the site does not include amps that are in bad shape or have had significant modifications in order to make the data more meaningful for valuation of vintage Fender amps that have suffered little. So, as is given in the empirical data, you can only look at min, max, and average and assume that on any given day you might have about 80% (very roughly) chance of getting the average price for the amp. Or figure you'd get the average plus or minus 15% (roughly).

If you're selling, then your price will depend upon how long you can wait before you sell. You can put a higher than average price on it if you don't mind waiting a lot longer before a buyer shows up. If you are anxious to sell, then you put a lower than average price.

And remember: 27% of all statistics are made up on the spot. ;)
