So if your blackface amp has a date code stamp of OB, it was made in 1965/February.If your tweed champ is stamped HH, it was made in 1958/August.In the above example, the transformer was made in either 1966 or 1976, week 45.Now if it’s a blackface amp, it’s a safe bet that 6 means 1966. This code can be found on the power transformer, output transformer, choke, and reverb transformer.For example, if you find pots from late ‘64 and transformers from early ’65, you can be pretty sure your amp is a 1965.The following chart, was originally printed in VG magazine, by Gerald Weber.

Most post tweed Fenders had trannys manufactured by Schumacher.Fender’s amps, unlike their guitars, are not tracked by the serial number.In order to date a Fender amp or provide the value, you need to know one of the below: * The 2 letter date code rubber stamped on the Tube Chart, or * The 2 letter date code on the QA Sticker, or * The Transformer Number that starts with “606-XX-XX”, with the 3 or 4 Xs being the unknown numbers that need to be provided by the owner of the amplifier asking the question.First, to get a general idea,there’s the appearance/style of the amp.There are some exceptions and some overlap, but the general idea is this: Tweeds (early 50’s to very early 60s), Browns (1960 – 1962), Blondes (1962 – 1963), Blackface (1963 – 1967), and Silverface (1967 – 1981).
