I just bought a 65 Princeton and it has a funky looking speaker in it. Anyone know what this is?
If you google: speaker code 137, the answer from several sources as well as added info is CTS.
Made in a year ending in "5"
Thanks guys. This puts me on the right trail. I found that these speakers were used in some Fender Supers and Gibson amps in 65 but I haven't found one in a Princeton. Anyone else know anything about these? Could it be original? All the 65 princetons I've seen had either a Jenson or Oxford. I'm replacing it with a Weber 10F150 anyway, I just want to know if I should bother storing it.
I've never seen a 10" ceramic CTS in a '65 Princeton either and doubt it's original. The speaker wire looks changed also. Is it black and white? Plenty of Oxfords and Jensens. Late '63,'64 and some very early '65 Fenders had black back Oxfords with no Fender sticker. The CTS speakers used in the Super Reverbs were alnico.
Yeah the wire is not original so I'm sure it's a replacement speaker. Thanks guys.
