These nicely broken-in 12" Jensens came out of a Fender Twin Combo and are in excellent condition, without any fault what-so-ever.
This has been thoroughly serviced without any problems being found.
All the valves test perfectly okay.
It has an inbuilt analog reverb and comes with its original Fender Custom 12 inch Speaker.
A foot switch controls the Channel selection (Clean & Distort) and is totally original.
Every single electrolytic has been replaced in this amp making it viable for at least another 30-years, apart from valve replacement of course.
Its 12 Watts doesn't sound much, but crank it up and it will blow your hat off particularly on the Distortion Channel.
Like so many old Fender amps, this is high up in the rankings and remains a popular choice for guitarist and collector alike.
This one has had the TORRES modification, explained as follows:
The kit gives the amp a ton more overdrive, tone and guts. It makes the amp really come alive and scream!

The Pawn Shop Fender '72 has a semi-hollow Stratocaster® body with f hole, a Telecaster® neck, rosewood fretboard with modern 9.5" radius and 6105 frets, a Fender Wide Range humbucking neck pickup and Fender EnforcerGäó humbucking bridge pickup, dual-knob chrome control plate with master volume and center-detented pickup blend, '70s-style hard-tail Stratocaster bridge, '70s-style Fender "F" tuners, mint green pickguard, bullet truss rod, three-bolt neck attachment.
What a stunning axe this is. Made in Japan and its quality ouzes out.
Restrung with Slinky 11s and sporting a superb low action.
Everything functions as it should
Has the usual dings and chips that have acrued over its 40-years of life, but nothing serious.
Comes with its original hard case
This amp was touted as having "more bells and whistles than a luxury sedan." These features included channel switching, multiple tone knobs, multiple pull-boosts, gain, presence, channel assignable reverb, external bias adjustment, a level-adjustable effects loop, a "power-amp-thru" jack for driving slave amps, a high/low power output selector, an impedance selector and more.
This is the sixth one that I have refitted into a Head. Everytime I get one fired up I am in awe of their power and fullness of sound. Even with the power switch set to 25W the sound can be quite deafening; but there is always the option to pull two of the output valves - nice one Fender!
These are believed to be one of the loudest 100W amps and I am not going to disagree with that.
This one started life as a combo, which has now been carefully modified to a head configuration and recovered in a very pleasing Cream tolex.
The amp in itself is working just great and has a new complete set of JJ valves. The re-valve alone cost over £150, which makes this amp somewhat of a bargain price.
Both Bias and Balance have been adjusted to Fender's requirements.
Consider the Channel Switching for one moment - When in Parallel mode ALL knobs across the front are active, thus allowing literally any sound to be set up from this awesome amp.
Ironically during these years (1987 - 1993) The Twin's head version was the Dual Showman - They were literally identical apart from the naming. So just to be that special bit extra, having a "The Twin" amp in head configuration not only saves the backache of hauling a behemoth of a combo about, but certainly creates a talking point when seen on stage.
So, what else is there to say in closing:
- Be one of the few to own a fabulous Twin Head.
- The foot switch for Channel Changing and Reverb On/Off is included.
- All set-up and ready to go.
- Speaker impedance setting should cover all eventualities and caters for 4, 8 and 16 ohm
- Power High / Low allows 100w / 25w output settings.
1990’s Laney GC-30V / VC-30 Valve Reverb Guitar Combo Amp 1 x 12.
This is one of the earlier GC-30V Laney’s that were built using the newer valve technology of the VC-30 rather than pure Solid-State and what an amp this has turned out to be.
Rear Panel Functions include:
This amp is definitely one to have in your collection.
This is an early one from its serial number 1811 and has been through a thorough full maintenance and service, thus ensuring an amp that is ready to go.
