In July 1957, Fender introduced the model 5F6 Bassman.This model also had four Jensen P10R speakers, but the power supply was redesigned around a single 83 mercury vapor rectifier tube, and a new preamp circuit was introduced that included a three knob tone stack, with separate controls for Treble, Mid and Bass.Scales and Seafood & Steaks is a perfect location for your next event or party.With our combination of amazing food, award-winning wines, creative specialty cocktails, and a breathtaking view of the harbor and bay, Scales offers a distinctly memorable experience for your private parties or banquets.Only 11 of these early 5D6 Bassman examples are known to have survived.The lowest serial number known to still exist is 0013 (Frank Roy), 0035 (Albert Talley), 0075 (Jim Cornett), 0077 (Perry Tate), 0089 (Mark Grandfield), 0701, 0745 (Walter Horton), 0769 (Hayes Kolb), 0780 (sold on e Bay Nov 2006), 0783, and 0785 (Hayes Kolb) are among those still known to exist.The first 4x10 Bassman amplifiers started with a batch of prototypes in November and December 1954, model 5D6.No schematic for the 5D6 circuit has ever been found, but Ken Fox and Frank Roy have created a few from originals, and copies are freely available online.
Later on, production was moved to Ensenada, Baja California, and the model name was altered to "59 Bassman LTD".
The P10R Jensen speakers were shipped within all Fender Bassmen from late 1954 until early 1960.
Many professional music industry analysts have heralded the 1950s Fender 4×10 Bassman amps as the greatest guitar amp ever.
During November 1954, Fender introduced the newly designed 5D6 Bassman amplifier offering four ten inch speakers and was designed utilizing two rectifier tubes.
The 5D6 was a major departure from the earlier 5B6 Fender Bassman model.
