Rebuilds for the Fender Blues Junior
Your Fender Blues Junior can be rebuilt into a boutique quality hand wired amp! Carl's Custom Amps has been doing this for a while with Pro Juniors and Blues Juniors turning them into true tone machines. I completely hand wire them with proper layout and grounds and classic circuits. Lots of different style are possible. We always replace the output transformer with Classic Tone USA and replacing the power transformer is optional for most mods. All you need to do is send in your chassis and we'll rebuild it and ship it back to you to re-install. In some case we'll recommend that you also replace the speaker the speaker for the best sound. Contact us today for pricing and discuss which rebuild is right for you!

"Good morning Carl.
Just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful job on my Blues Junior re-do; into a Blonde 20. Been experimenting with it over the last few days and some of my buddies are jealous of the clean sound and all the headroom. I also have a pedal board with mostly MXRs and a few hand builts. Really enjoying the amazing richness coming from the amp.
I'm also impressed with the quality of your work. All the solder joints look super clean and the chassis config. is pro in my book. I can tell you do this with a great deal of care.
Again thanks so much.
"Your amplifier service is really amazing!
This amp sounds magical. I'm not kidding, I couldn't stop playing it.
I'm really, really happy with the end result.
