two different leather handles from Fender. both don’t fit the old champ

the handle I purchased was too short for the vintage tweed amps. I barely put it on my champ after extending the slots. the part # is 099-0945-000.

 

[Update]

found this too late. 003-6129-049.

but, it’s good to know fender has the right one for tweed amps

UPDATE – 003-6129-049 doesn’t fit the original champ either

 

 

 

this handle is the one I put on my tweed champ.

this one looks pretty much like the original, and it feels very firm with 2 ply structure while the original had 4.

I’d be stuck with this Jayco repro handle without trying 003-6129-049. it feels great and secure. all they are not the original. but handles are not the tone caps or tubes anyway.

and, this humped one looks good with the original 3 ply structure and shape.
