    If they have sold out, you have to wonder why there is a full page add in the current vintage guitar issue? Advertisement directs inquiry's to JB's website still.
    quite curious

    Re: Fender ‘59 Twin-Amp™ JB Edition released

    I posted this on other forums as well.

    I have had issues with mine. I thought I had tracked it down to a faulty speaker. Brought the amp into a Fender certified and they checked the speakers and they supposedly checked out fine.

    Well I got my amp back from the tech and the speaker is STILL a problem.

    Here are three videos of the speakers. The first is the amp BEFORE I brought it to the tech. You can hear the buzzing especially at the end of the video when I hold the lower notes.

    The next two videos are of each speaker hooked up to another amp. All I did was unplug the speaker cable and hook it up to another amp. Still in the cab. You can hear the same buzzing from the left speaker as in the first video, but no buzz in from the right speaker. I have put another email out to Joe's customer service regarding the issue. I am hoping for just a replacement speaker, but who knows.

    On top of it, there is now a sticker on the back panel stating that if I break the seal of this sticker (it would break if I were to take the back panel off) that the warranty is void.

    I am just extremely frustrated at this point. The amp sounds fantastic but this speaker buzz thing is driving me nuts.

    Re: Fender ‘59 Twin-Amp™ JB Edition released

    gio, that sounds just like the raspy buzz that I heard out of two Celestion V30's in a custom cab a while back. The young player had not noticed it until I pointed it out to him. I shared with him my thoughts on modern Celestions...to which he replied....but everybody is using them. I said that I could not account for what others do but that my ear tells me that I don't have much use for the ones I have heard. He agreed that the other speakers that I let him hear...on his same amp.....were better sounding speakers. OMMV......but I don't use 'em.
    I hope you get it lined out.....

    Those speakers in the JB amp are Chinese Celestions. If you want a Celestion with that kind of wattage that is still made in England, get two of the Mesa Boogie Black Shadow speakers, also known as the C-90. Probably the best modern high-wattage speaker made today. The ones in the JB are crap.

    Are you guys saying the buzz heard in the videos above is to be expected from modern celestions ?

    Re: Fender ‘59 Twin-Amp™ JB Edition released

    I've had problems with phantom buzzes in tweed amps that came down to the fact that the back panels are thin and poorly supported and covered with stiff, light stuff. Consequently they can vibrate against the cab. I have a Deluxe that I stuff a folded over piece of paper between the top back panel and the chassis to stop it. Is it possible it's not the speaker but the cab? You could pull the speaker in question and drop it in another cab to see.

    Re: Fender ‘59 Twin-Amp™ JB Edition released

    I suppose it is time to enforce a warranty....if only to find out if the speaker is the problem or if there is a cabinet rattle/buzz? ???? OR...you do what many folks do. Ypu either take it to your favorite tech.....and imho if a person is spending that kind of money on an amp, one should have a good tech.....and tell that ech to find out what is wrong. When the tech tells you that it will void the warranty, you say...'I don't care. You are going to be doing my work for me anyway.'

    Wow, that's crazy! I've been out of the loop on V30's for years. I used to own 4 in a cab, and they never buzzed (I disliked them for other reasons) .

    I'm betting you could get one of the speakers out without having to remove the back panel

    Hi guys,
    I saw on JB’s site a reserve to buy the amp. Does anyone know if will be a second run?
    Thanks to all

    It appears that he is taking deposits on pre-orders... Perhaps they're only building the number of amps that are ordered?

    There is going to be a second run. Exact same specs. They should be shipping out in the fall.

    Why not in the stores?

    Re: Fender ‘59 Twin-Amp™ JB Edition released

    I’m sure it sounds great but with all of the great clone builders out there you might be able to get something very similar for much less coin.

    For example?

  21. #141

    Re: Fender ‘59 Twin-Amp™ JB Edition released

    First clone that comes to mind is a Victoria 80212. Retails for $2900. Mark Baier prides himself on the fact that a lot of his parts come from the same companies and factories as the 50's originals.

    2nd would be the Mojotone Tweed Twin. You can buy the kit from them complete for $1150 if you want to build it yourself or $1375 to buy it already assembled.

    I would love to see a comparison between the three of them especially with the price difference. But the one thing about the JB Twin is it will hold or gain value where as the other two won't. If that matters to you.

    Thank you guys but I live in Italy and is very difficult to find something like that here.
    I have a Bluesbreaker and it has a very different sound, do you think i can reach a similar tweed sound with mine?

    Re: Fender ‘59 Twin-Amp™ JB Edition released

    Looks like the second batch has sold out on his website also.
    Does anyone know if it was also a run of 150?
    Still loving mine, I see he is now using a couple of Dumbles along with
    the Twins now.

    Re: Fender ‘59 Twin-Amp™ JB Edition released

    I ordered first days of June right after the initial 150 sold out. Six months after my deposit , today, serial number 154 arrived!! Not sure of the total amount of these amps that were made??? Guessing 250..... Tung Sol 6L6's installed but pulled the preamp groove tubes and installed a Mullard 12ax7 from the early 70's in V1, A Ei Yugo 12ax7 in V2, and a Tung Sol in V3 position. Hooked up a 63 Fender reverb unit and Holy Crap!! Real nice amp here!!! Loud, Clean, Headroom! Very Happy so far with the purchase!

    Re: Fender ‘59 Twin-Amp™ JB Edition released

    Looks like #113 is on Reverb right now.

    I put a NOS RCA 12AY7 in V1, was looking to lower the headroom a bit. Sounded great before but this was a nice change, haven't played around with other tube swaps, got mine in April on the first run. Great amp for sure. The post below, one on Reverb has sold already.

    i remember in the nineties at guitar shows in the northwest that victoria guy at his table showing his amps. a big one and a small one, 2 amps. i watched him sit a whole show sitting with those 2 amps, chatted with a few people then walked out with them at the end of the show. i hadnt a care in the world about those amps because there was so much vintage stuff there! however my hat is off to that guy he builds a killer amp and he paid his dues for sure. really quite the success story. he seemed like a super nice guy too
