When it is cranked it tends to sound a bit “browner” than the bigger two-channel amps, meaning more breakup in the lower frequencies and mid-focused tone.

Much of this is due to an unefficient phase inverter circuit design.

Compared to many bigger Fender amps the Princeton Reverb (PR) wenr through the CBS/silverface periods with very little changes.

The pickups pick up the sound waves coming from the strings and send them to the effect pedals and eventually to the amp for amplification.

I have written an entire article about electric guitar pickups and repairs.

For more information about electric guitar pickups, see the electric guitar pickup page.

Generally, the electronics in an electric guitar consist of four different components: pickups, pickup selectors, volume pots, and tone pots.

Many other aspects of electric guitars affect the tonal qualities of the instrument, but the electronics cannot be overlooked.

In this article, I will talk about different electronics in electric guitars as well as some common repairs.

In build quality and component selection (brands of caps, resistors, pots) the silverfaces are not as robust as the blackface models.

The glued and stapled baffles on the silverface amps is to us one of the bigger differences between the blackface and silverface amps, or should we say, the cabinets.

Hi my name is Dan in California and I own a hag viking, I purchased this guitar in 1990 for a top price of .00 US dlls. I don't know what he was thinking or he didn't know what he had but I fell in love since the moment I saw it and its by my side since, I always thought I will save it for my son but unfortunately he is a lefty so he doesn't play it I had to get a lefty guitar, I got the serial number (646950) can you tell me what year production. The guitar is really in magnificent condition, has practically no dings or scratches (even in the back ! As you can see on the pic, it has the famous 'Elvis'-tailpiece, has a gold decal and the first type of goldcoloured bridge. There isn't any damage to the binding of the head, neck or body. Anyway, I wonder if you have any idea what might have been the colour number of this beautiful cherry red colour, because I would like to repaint it in the original colour, if possible. Hello again David, I managed to repair the old lady myself. ) hours all together, but if I see, feel and hear the result now, I don't regret the time I spent on this beauty.

Has a serial # 680498, I think it must be from 1967. Original pots but new wiring and non-original knobs.

If I put both Hagstroms I and II aside, I can now see many differences.
