65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue Amps – Hand Wired Upgrades

A couple of 65 Fender Deluxe Reissue amplifiers requiring work came across my bench, and it was decided to update them with hand wired tag- boards. A bit time consuming when all was said and done, a work of love for sure, but they sound brilliant now.
