    Ok here a few pics of a Fender guitar amp it looks like an original blues deluxe but it has twin speakers installed so am a bit confused did Fender make these at some point with twin drivers?

    Yes they did a 2 X 10 and a 2 X 12 but you sure that's not a Blues Deville?

    No not sure it may well be all I can make out from the back is Blues D it gets blurry after that when the pic is enlarged I assumed it was a Blues Deluxe.

    Mainly power. The Deluxe is 40 watts and the Deville is a 60 watt. Also the Deville had better speakers. The Deluxe had only a so-so speaker(s) but if you replaced it with something better it became a really nice smooth sounding little amp. Deluxe was more of a practice amp and the Deville was a small gigging amp.

    Just out of curiosity what do you think the amp in the pictures is worth assuming it works and is a Devillle?

    As long as everything works with no issues ( and it cleans up well cause it's a bit dirty) I would guess in the $350 to $500 range depending on the local market. Devilles are more desirable than Deluxes from what I have seen. I always thought of the Deville as a smaller brother to the Twin, in a lot of ways.

    I recently worked on a Blues Deluxe....re-cap...re-tube...and replaced the rather meh speaker with an Allesandro and it totally transformed the amp!

    Ok I went ahead and bought it, they were asking $100.00 I gave them $200.00 which I know sounds like a stupid thing to do but I felt it was the right thing. It works fine I will try and get some pics up once I get it out of the van.

    In my opinion, even at $200, that was a steal. I've got an old Deville, 2x12, and it's a great amp.

    Great Karma move and still a very fair deal all around.
