Hi I am looking to sell my amp but am unsure of its age and value. It is a Fender Hot Rod DeVille, Type PR 247, Serial No. B-109090. It is in pristine condition, with foot pedal. I can send photographs if needed. Thank you for any assistance.
Cheers, Jack. You have a very nice amp made 1985-1986.
I saw to go in private sales in the last 90 days and the price was $945.00 for a perfect one. The other was only dusty and it went for $900.00 even. Yours is perfect? Use these prices as a guide line only. Older Fender Amps hold value better than most.
Thanks! I thought it matched up well with another amp you discussed in an earlier thread, but I thought mine was possibly made in 1996 based on some other things that I read; glad to hear I was wrong. I very much appreciate your time sir. Thanks again!
Jack, thank you for telling it is all ok. I like feed back.
Sorry but I dont think its 85-86 as stated below, the Hot Rod Deville and Hot Rod Deluxe first year run was in 96. See Fenders website below for acurate dating.
Yes I know this page and it is full of incorrect data.
But thanks for tring to help. Troy the suff on this fake fender sie will cause troble. I been down this road. He an would know a ten year gap.
Troy the Hot Rod delux is newer. the Deville is an older amp.
* The Hot Rod Deluxe (NO. 021-3202-000) 40W was made from 1997 to present....
* The Hot Rod Deville (NO. 021-3200-000) 60W was made from 1997 to present....
(Blue Book of Guitar Amplifiers).
They are reissue? I have older listings. I could make a goof up. Hard to believe. I do not believe all i read on the net. The site Troy talked about has it's problems.
Just going by what the Blue Book said. I don't make this stuff up you know. That Pignose Hog20 should be coming in the next couple of days.... New toy to play with. Any suggestions????
Did you buy one Master, for fun you will have a grand time. I had the first little one 71-100 for cancer corner, I wore it out, it took 15 tries to turn it on.
I wanted one back in the 1970's but the waiting list was crazy. The Hog was used also from GC at $35.00. Both are very clean and simple. The Hog has a gain, the call it Squeal to be cute. I have a Dean Markley stick on pick up
to record acoustic and run then in to the amps. i have a junk mic and back ground noise will be on any CD I make.
Tell me about the hog you picked up. The cheap guitar and some Burgh snow.
You can keep the snow. No snow here in Erwin, TN where I'm working, it's been raining the last 3 or 4 days and in the high 40's to mid 50's during the day and the mid 30's to low 40's at night.
What is this "Master" you wrote about above? Does it interface with the Hog20 and what does it do that is fun?
I also have a Dean Markley sound hole pickup for my acoustics, if I want to electrify them. Tried it when I first bought it, haven't used it since. But I have it if I ever need it. However, I'm old school when it comes to acoustics. When I buy one, it's an acoustic with no electronic stuff installed. Just doesn't seem right that way - an acoustic is an acoustic.... Know what I mean?
Maybe the link below will help since the Fender site is fake?!?!??. Sorry but I have this amp as well and you cant date it according to the serial number, you have to match up the Q/A sticker to the chart. Believe me (or not), this amp starting with serial B-0XXXXX was not made in 86.
Sorry Charlie, The Hot Rod Deville and Deluxe were only made in the USA from 1996-2002 (The F.A.T. models) 2003 to present are made in Mexico. I don't how you got 86-87 But that is totally wrong. But here is the good news. If it is a 1996 it would have a gold 50th anniversary stamp on the back plate and that would make it the most saught after Deluxe of them all. I've seen them go for as much as $2000 In mint condition. Good Luck
It Ain't no 86-87:
I don't know where that 86-87 came from either. I do know that KevinPaul claimed to have a serial number listing for Fender guitars (insider information from a friend) to date Fender amps in-lieu of using the 2 letter date code on the tube chart or QA sticker or the "606-" transformer number. That may explain it????
The Blue Book for Guitar Amplifiers has a listing that they were made from "1997 to Present" as I had indicated previously.
The serial number is the production date on later models. Mine has b-26/04/13.
This is not correct per Fender. Fender is a U.S. manufacturer and would use the American version of dating, which would be B-04/26/13 (day, month, year) in-lieu of the European version you used as an example.
Fender indicates the 2-Letter Date Code on the Tube or the QA Sticker or the Transformer Number is the only method for the date of manufacture...
Just trying to keep the information straight out there,
