Note, pictures shown here are of a similar Fat Jimmy amp, the 5E3. The 5E5 version of this amp is more powerful, but is visually identical to the 5E3.
The Fat Jimmy 5E5 is the more powerful version of the Fat Jimmy 5E3, with larger transformers, 6L6 power tubes, and slightly higher voltages in the power supply. For those times when the 5E3 isn't quite enough!
The Fat Jimmy Vintage Series 5E5 is one of Fat Jimmy's meticulous recreations of the famous 5E3 Tweed Deluxe circuit. This circuit was featured in the 1 x 12" Tweed Deluxe amplifier combos manufactured by the Fender Electric Instrument Company from 1957 – 1959, and is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest guitar amplifiers of all time. True both on stage and in the studio. Incredible chime with beautiful rich clean tones at lower volumes, and what might be considered the definitive rock & roll overdrive when turned up. Crank it all the way for godlike tone and sustain.
