Fender Custom Shop Forest Fire Juniper '57 Champ Guitar Amplifier - Only One Built


This one of a kind showpiece started as an Alligator Juniper tree salvaged after the Doce wildfire near Prescott, Arizona in 2013. The centuries old tree had been killed by the devastating blaze and eventually reclaimed. 

Master Builder Shawn Greene secured a single slab of highly figured juniper and picked the most stunning sections for his projects.  The parts were cut and carefully sanded, polished, then assembled and treated with a natural wax finish.

An unmistakably unique feature of this amp is the "live edge" treatment around the grille. Burnt bark, unsanded but hardened and sealed, frames the front of the amp. Heat blued hardware is mounted throughout, hinting at the furious fire that burned the wood. Other custom appointments include juniper green acoustic suede grille cloth, laser etched control panel, a hand made volume knob and juniper wood Fender logo.

Great tone comes from our hand wired all tube '57 Custom Champ circuitry, featuring Fender Vintage yellow tone capacitors and Schumacher transformers. an 8" speaker makes this amp the perfect size and output power for the discriminating collector's home or office. 

This one of a kind stunner is available in 120W for North America - only one made. A custom shop badge on the rear panel and a signed certificate of authenticity signify this genuinely collectible fender amplifier.
