Australian Guitar - - Feature -

The brown ’62 Prince­ton amp’s sen­si­tiv­ity and smooth or­ganic tremolo made it a long­time stu­dio fa­vorite for Grammy-win­ning coun­try artist Chris Sta­ple­ton. This hand-wired spe­cial edi­tion com­bines the clas­sic 6G2 cir­cuit with Sta­ple­ton’s fa­vorite fea­tures and per­son­ally cho­sen aes­thetic touches. This 12-watt combo fea­tures Fender Vin­tage Blue tone caps, Schumacher transforme­rs, an up­graded 12-inch Em­i­nence CS speaker, and an output tube­bi­ased tremolo cir­cuit. The acous­ti­cally res­o­nant, solid pine cabi­net wears rough, tex­tured vinyl cov­er­ing, wheat grille cloth and a thick, dark brown leather han­dle, while the dark brown con­trol panel sports dark brown “ra­dio” knobs and the rear panel fea­tures an en­graved brass plate with Chris Sta­ple­ton’s sig­na­ture.
