I recently worked a deal that netted me a tweed Fender Bandmaster. The model designation for this amp is 5E7, which is the classic narrow panel 3×10 bandmaster produced form 1955 to 1960. These are cool amps. The three ten-inch speakers is interesting, and sounds punchy. Of course it is all tube with 5881 power tubes and three pre-amp tubes. And it is all point-to-point wired by hand – no printed circuit board or el-cheapo components. The ideas is to get as close to how Leo Fender was doing it back in the 50s as possible.

Also, this article further supports my claim to total embarrassing guitar nerd-dom, so don’t be thinking that is new news to the Jeddler. Here we go basically in chronological order as best as I can remember…
