If you're into collecting vintage amps, fine. Truthfully, my little LT25 ($149) can do what the Champ does, fullfill the same purpose for me, and much more. Of course, it has absolutely no visual stage appeal or wow-factor. I have a friend that paid over $1000 for a new, hand-wired tweed Fender Champ a few years ago. After playing though it in his living room I left thinking his money could have been better spent.
I think if you are a collector, thats great. But if you just want a home amp to play, a good clone will be far less expensive and more reliable. And dont buy into the hype that they sound best dimed, they dont. At all. 4-6 is where you want to be.
Some times you luck out and get one with all original parts/tubes/and speaker that sounds really sweet. I love them with strats for low volume clean playing. The stock alnico speaker should be well broken in.
Any Blackface Fender amp will probably continue to increase in value in coming years. 67 was still early enough that the CBS bean counters probably hadn’t had time to “refine” the design, so it’ll still have a lot of Leo in it and so it’s likely to maintain its desirability for a long time to come.
Grab it. I’d reckon you’ll probably double your money in 10 years.
