A couple of things in the circuitry were immediately changed in 1965 when the AA165 and AB165 replaced the AA864.Amp collectors and idealists often prefer the pre-CBS models but if we study the AB165 circuit it does have something very interesting for guitar players who enjoy cranked Fender blackface tones.We’ll come back to this later in the “blackface chapter” below where we’ll demystify some of the hypes with the popular AA864.The AA165 is very rare and its circuit and tone is quite similar to the AA864.As you can see here, he’s running the Dark Terrors alongside the Fractal Axe-Fx, which helps with covering complicated sounds and pedal combinations he can’t navigate simply with his feet while performing.

Determining production date by serial number and transformer codes is better, and you should also inspect the circuit to be completly sure.This one sounded so good (it’s loaded with unknown Di Marzio single-coils) that he continues to use it on tour and in the studio.During a visit out to Fender’s California factory, Larry stumbled upon this Telecaster Custom that had a super fat neck—especially down by the headstock—so he had them shave it down and it’s become his favorite Tele for live situations. 1 influenced the swap: The Sunburst has a [S-1] pushbutton for out-of-phase stuff and its hardware is just killer.During the different eras the Bassman amp came in many different shapes and configurations.Few other models experienced so many changes in terms of looks and tone.
