FENDER ‘62 PRINCETON CHRIS STAPLETON
RRP: $3,299 • fender.com
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.
