Fender Super-Sonic 60 60W 1x12 Tube Guitar Combo Amp Blonde

Fender Super-Sonic amplifiers are the favorite tool of pro guitarists in many different musical genres who love to create glorious Fender clean tones, and expressive modern high-gain tones—with one no-nonsense tube amp. The Super-Sonic 60 tube amp's Vintage channel is based on two legendary Fender favorites, and the awesome Burn channel ignites musical inspiration with overdrive flavors ranging from bluesy to flame-throwing.

The Vintage channel contains pre-gain tone controls and 2 switchable voices. The guitar amp's Burn channel contains dual gain controls and post-gain EQ, allowing tonal experimentation. The Fender Super-Sonic 60 combo also features the long-spring Reverb by Accutronics; Ivory "radio" knobs; and a 4-button footswitch for Channel, Fat, Reverb, and Effects Loop.

The Fender Super-Sonic 60 tube amp has been tweaked for increased bass response and fatter tone, and its heavily saturated tube overdrive and sustain can be fine tuned without masking the tonal character of your guitar.

And by popular demand, the Fender Super-Sonic 60 amps are available in two classic cosmetic treatments: Black/Silver, and iconic 1961 Blonde/Oxblood look with glorious ivory knobs and flowing Fender logo on each front panel.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.


This amp features two channels, Vintage and Burn. The Vintage channel was inspired by the sound of two much-loved Fender favorites, and the Burn channel features an overdrive that ranges from bluesy to feverish and everything between.

The Vintage channel has pre-gain tone controls and two voices, and the Burn channel has a pair of gain controls and a post-gain equalizer. As such, both channels offer a wide range of differing tonal possibilities and allow for easy tonal experimentation, whatever the chosen starting point.
The Fender Super 60 60W Tube Guitar Amp by legendary American guitar and amp-maker Fender, is the preferred brand of many professional guitarists.  Fender products carry with them the expectation of quality sound and craftsmanship, and the Super 60 does not disappoint.

Fender Super 60 Amp Review

Fender Super Sonic 60Watt Amp

The Fender Super 60 also comes with a three button footswitch, making this amp ideal for on-the-go customization, whether at home, in the studio, or on stage. This amp head was designed with a no frills approach, so it is easy to create and adjust custom tones without becoming bogged down by an overwhelming array of options.

With 60 Watts of power and weighing in at 43 pounds, this head amp can be easily combined with a powerful cabinet to blow away the competition. The solid tube construction, consisting of two 6L6 tubes, six 12AX7 tubes and one 12AT7 tubes gives this head amp an authentic and high-quality Fender sound. The Super 60 has been specially designed to have highly responsive bass levels and a fatter tone and also features a saturated tube overdrive and sustain that can be finely adjusted to achieve nuanced sounds.

In keeping with its authentic Fender sound, the Fender Super 60 has a classic look, featuring the iconic white Fender script and knob design. The Super 60 is also available in two color combinations: standard black and silver or retro blonde with oxblood details, inspired by a 1961 design, for a more stylish, stand-out appearance. Ivory radio-style knobs lend both models a touch of class and sophistication, as well as making adjusting tone and volume simple.

Though perhaps not as customizable as similarly priced amps from other companies, the Fender Super 60 comes with the promise of Fender quality and authenticity. The Fender sound is so iconic and preferred by so many leading guitarists, it's hard to go wrong with this choice of amplifier.

A professional, world-class amplifier for serious guitarists who are interested in only the best.  The sound, look, features and Watts of this amp means it ranges right up there with the very best in portable amplification equipment.  This is one for the big boys...
