Wonderful condition with little to no signs of wear.
The Tungsten Cortez 5D3 Wide-panel Amplifier os based on the classic Fender 5D3 design, delivering 12 watts of power with 6V6 tubes and an optional 18 watts with 6L6 power tubes, a floating paraphase inverter, and a "straight to grid" input on the Normal channel
The Cortez has the same controls as the Crema Wheat, a single Tone knob, with Bright and Normal Volume controls, but with three inputs. It ships with a custom designed 12" Tungsten Alnico speaker and Mercury Magnetics transformers. Because this amp is cathode biased, swapping power tubes is just a matter of plugging them in. No re-biasing is ever necessary. Likewise, the preamp section accepts 12AX7, 12AU7, 12AY7, 12AT7 and 5751 tubes, giving you a great deal of control over your tone if you're the type that likes to tinker.
