Fender Champ 5D1 1955

This is a 1955 Fender Wide Panel Champ 5 Watt Amp.

Rear view.

Shot of rear showing original speaker 6L 395512 and original Triad power transformer. Works and sounds great.

Some work was done on the amp - the 25/25 bypass cap was replaced with a TAD which was way out of spec.

Replaced all of the electrolytics, removed the death cap and installed an 18/3 grounded power cord. Amp is quiet and sounds great so I left the original Astron signal caps for now.
