  • 5D3 tweed deluxe with the factory original P12R

  • my p12r has come back after re-cone job. the old pics are here

    http://slowbean.net/thread/50s-jensen-p12r-restoration-has-begun/

    this 5D3 came from December 1954. and the speaker came from a 5C3 ’54. it’s not easy to pick only one speaker for fender tweed deluxe yet.

  • Elliot Mechanics – Mechanicland Strat Neck pictures

  • got this neck a couple of years ago. this neck has refinished and unfortunately, it’s urethan finish on it, not lacquer finish. it still ages well though.

    trussrod nut and the decal have replaced at 90’s by the former owner. and I don’t think this Mechanicland neck came with the decal. the decal on the head is definitely a aftermarket product.

    beautiful with the Brazilian fretboard. and, sounds stunning with this light ash (not swamp ash) body

    Both aren’t mine though these axes are quite beautiful.

    I like the maple fretboard if I choose one of them.

    단점은 넥이 얇아. 그런데 다른 넥이 별로 생각나지는 않네

  • Fender – Jensen speaker phase were reversed in 50’s tweed amps

  • I just tried 9V battery trick for 50’s Fender Champ and Deluxe. and the speaker wiring turned out being reversed. both of them still have the factory wiring.

    And, both of them move backward (to the magnets) when they wired 9V + to the white wire, and – pole to the black wire.

    They mostly say there is no absolute speaker phase unless they are in the same cabinet. at the same time, many people say the speaker cones move forward when they hooked up in the right direction with 9V battery.

    Fortunately, 9V battery didn’t kill my 8″ Champ speaker, nor 12″ Deluxe speaker. but I’ve read some cases this trick killed their speakers.

    I’m not sure with 50’s and 60’s Jensen speaker’s correct phase. but, I started to believe Fender hooked them up this way. I’ve seen only 2 cases. and will update if I come across a different case.

     

    보통 9V 배터리를 스피커의 +, – 극에 맞게 연결하면 스피커 콘이 앞쪽 (마그넷의 반대방향)으로 움직인다고들 하는데, 50년대 펜더 챔프와 트위드 딜럭스는 그렇지 않습니다. 이 두 앰프는 흰색선에 +, 검정선에 -극을 연결하면 뒤로 (자석 쪽으로) 움직입니다. 앰프 두대가 반대로 연결되어 있을 확율은 낮아서요. 더 찾아볼 생각입니다.

  • Fender tweed champ 5F1 1959 pics

  • 59 tweed champ with 8″ Jensen Speaker. I’m using 5y3 rectifier for the original setup. and 5v4g for more clean headroom. 5F1 breaks up early and it’s the character of this amp. 5v4g makes 5F1 sounds more like Tweed Deluxe. but, it’s still tweed champ

  • ’54 Fender Tweed Deluxe 5D3 pics

  • This wide panel 5D3 had weber speaker when it came to me a few months ago. Tweed deluxe and Weber 12″ alnico speakers are basically great instruments. but, I wanted the original, or period correct speaker.

    I’ve tried a like new ’51 P12R without bell, re-coned ’53 P12R came from 5C3, black ’61 P12N, and this ’51 P12Q.

    P12Q is also the original speaker for Fender tweed deluxe at 50’s. they put P12R and P12Q both inside of tweed deluxe series.

    P12Q breaks up early like P12R. but not exactly same. I was obsessed with vintage Jensen speakers a while ago. and P12N was my favorite and still is. but, P12R breaks up too early, and P12N does too late to me. this P12Q gives the best balance so far. and will be my keeper.

    3 prong AC cable, handle, and the largest Astron capacitor sleeve are not the original. the cabinet has new skin as you can see.

  • I once lost my original handle few months ago. then tried Jayco and Fender handle at the time. the first one I got from fender didn’t fit tweed champ like this.

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

    003-6129-049 arrived today. unfortunately, it doesn’t fit either. this 9″ handle from Fender has identical length to the 50’s original. but the slots are not wide enough. but it still better than 099-0945-049. it looks easy to extend the slots.

    And, I noticed 003-6129-049 fits the original wide panel tweed deluxe. this tweed deluxe currently has Jayco handle on it. they look almost identical to each other. and, I see the sewing stitches are better on Jayco.

  • 50’s fender leather handle – flat one

  • it came with a narrow panel champ. I see 4 layers from this side

     

    the dimensions are like this

    overall length 9″ (23cm)

    handle mount center to center 7″ (17.8cm)

    slot to slot (inside) 6″ (15cm)

     

    and, I’m using this to protect my leather stuff. belts, shoes, and for this old handle as well.

  • somewhat old fender 6v6gt tube from sylvania

  • This 6v6 came to me a couple of months ago. it looks same with 60’s to 70’s Sylvania 6v6 tube.

    from left to right

    RCA 6v6 from 50’s or 60’s.

    Fender 6v6 made by Sylvania (the black plate, insulating spacers, and base are typical Sylvania)

    Sylvania 6v6 from 60’s which you can find from everywhere. robust and affordable to me.

     

     

    Also, this Fender-Sylvania 6v6 is exactly the same tube with Philips 6v6.
