Painstakingly true to the original. The Fender '62 Princeton Chris Stapleton Edition Combo has been made to exact specifications. Only being made by Fender for a short while and never reissued, this brownface Princeton is unlike the tweed and blackface models, sitting between the two but with a warmer, woodier tone. Voiced beautifully to begin with, the Princeton doesn't need much attention. You get a tone and a volume with the other two knobs dedicated to speed and intensity of the tube tremolo, and its enough to make any guitar sing.
Throwing a Telecaster at it and turning the volume up brings the Princeton to life, giving rich harmonics, touch sensitivity with strong bite and rich sustain - thanks to pushing those 6V6s. Fender took to remodelling the cab exactly the same as they were originally, using finger jointed solid pine which gives the speaker a solid resonant cabinet from which it blooms. Like Chris Stapleton's original '62 Princeton, the speaker was upgraded from a 10" to a 12" and Emminence recreated this perfectly. The Princeton even includes the vintage blue Fender caps of the day - and of course, it is point to point wired, just like they used to be.
