Hi GGAA, i'm on the verge of purchasing a clean combo amp that is quite loud, i see the Twin Re-Issue is 85 odd watts RMS, which is very well suited to my needs.
i'm just curious as to the quality of the current day fender amplifiers as opposed to how they were made in the 60's/70's etc.

can anyone tell me if they use the same quality of components and how reliable the are, as well as what OHMage the Ext speaker output is.

Thanks guys.

no they don't use the same quality of components.

the new ones are pretty shit compared to the vintage ones.
Prs se Holcomb is the answer

The red knob had a switchable 4, 8, 16 ohm speaker out.
Not a bad amp but not the best either, I sold mine, the cleans are fine but the dirty channel just did´nt cut it.

A Blackface Twin is what people mean when they say "Fender cleans." It's the benchmark by which all other cleans are measured.

They were called The Twin, the red knob twins have a gain channel.

I absolutely love this amp and have no doubt it is built extremely well and will last longer than me.
I bought a custom shop stratocaster a couple years ago and I hardly ever played it because I've had amps and effects that did it no justice. Just found the 65 reissue TR for 650 at a pawn shop in mint condition and that strat is totally reborn. I want to play it all the time. I've been playing for decades and never felt so good about the noise i make. I was worried about it being too loud, but really not an issue because of the quality of the sound. All my guitars (including acoustics)sound great through it, as do harps with a green bullet. I play in church with a digitech RP1000--sweeeeeeet, and played it with the blues band tonight with no effects--sweet too.
