    I bought this amp in ’89 and still own it today.  This is the amp I use for  gigs.  Full sound, great reverb, enough power for a big room and excellent sound.  One twelve inch speaker that I sometimes connect with another 12 inch cabinet for a wider sound with more bass and fuller sound.  Rodriguez designed and still one of the greatest Fender amps ever built.  Huge power and great reverb with gain and enough effects to play in most rooms.  Love it, but not the 60 pound weight.

       who is Rodriguez, and how do you know he had anything to do with the design of this amp???  All credible publications I’ve seen say Mark Wentling was the designer (along with the Fender Engineering team he led).

        I agree, Rivera did not design this amp , Mark Wentling did.  I bought a used one in mint condition, changed the tubes, and speaker and it is a surprising amp, very clean ; the new tubes give it a warmth and it has very nice tone. I also have a Rivera and two Mesa Boogies and does not have the volume and head room that the other three amps have unless I crank up the Mid. Still is is a nice little amp.

    I have one. I bought it new. I was at Guitar Center in San Jose CA, it had just hit the floor, and I plugged into it. WOW. Tone, crunch, and a lot of tonal variations. Replaced the tubes once, but otherwise it has been solid. Finding this prompted me to bring it out of the closet and play it again. Wow. I still love it (but it does need some TLC. The pots are a bit noisy, and the input 1 jack is a bit flakey. Fabulous amp, very versatile, and LOUD for what it is.

    Hi. Can anyone tell what kind of speaker there is in Fender Super 60? I have one of these and wonder… The online information I can fins on the speaker is; “Fender musikal instrument spesial design speaker”, no. 1256-1 on the membrane. I like to compare with Jensen, Celestion, ett. Sine regards Egil Stenset, Norway

    Mine is covered in Red Lizard Skin Tolex. Also it does boast a tube powered spring reverb and the speaker that comes standard just says Fender Instruments Special Speaker on a blue label. But then again, my knobs are black with white and the aforementioned red tolex.
