POST # 529 EBAY PRICE GUIDE : Fender ProSonic Custom Shop Combo Amp 1996
A Great 'modern' Fender with a vintage look. Scroll down to see how much it sold for. Here's the blurb from the seller.
Fender ProSonic Custom Shop Combo Amp 1996
Seafoam Lizardskin Green–RARE, SN-LO685157 (GA)
All original, including tubes.
I am the original owner.
Lightly used, now a closet queen. Never repaired or modified, everything works. Very reasonable reserve.
Fender’s answer to Mesa-Boogie. This amp is the Bruce Zinky custom shop version dated January, 1996. Pots hand-soldered to PC board.
2-10" Celestion Vintage 30 speakers, footswitch, chicken head knobs, 2 channels (one with cascading gain stages), reverb,
amp cover (a little stained).
The amp also allows you to switch between: 1. Tube rectifier in Class A mode (30W); 2. Tube rectifier in Class A/B mode (50W); 3. Solid State rectifier (60W)
This amp is part of the Custom Shop Professional Tube Amp Series, better quality and build than the Hot Rod Series and production Fender amps.
This amp is versatile--check online to see the creative settings fans use—in clubs and small halls it needs little or no help from a PA, because it is very, very loud.
It delivers multiple sounds ranging from clean soft jazz to super-saturated overdrive. I once MC’d a show featuring Big Head Todd. He used two Prosonics just like this one. Clean channel has that beautiful, bell-like Fender chime and is full-sounding with a richer low end than you’d expect.
Fender says they built about 500 Seafoam Green Prosonics, probably half that many exist. Manual available online, or I will email you the pdf. I hope you have a sea-foam Strat to go with it.
I never play at the volume this amp is capable of, so it’s too much Fender for me anymore.
The eBay calculator doesn't consider packing costs, and it always displays a much lower than realistic figure. Other listings for this item put shipping around $95, which sounds about what the buyer will have to expect. Tubes will be packed in peanuts, boxed, and placed inside the amp. -Thanks for looking this over. I welcome your inquiries.
