An updated version of the legendary amplifier that’s been the heart of many guitarists’ rigs, the Hot Rod Deluxe IV features modified preamp circuitry, smoother-sounding spring reverb and updated aesthetics that any player is sure to appreciate. A supercharged amp decked out with player-requested features, this scorching 40-watt 1×12″ combo is ideal for guitarists who need hotrodded power with performance to spare.
The Hot Rod Deluxe IV includes a 12″ Celestion® A-Type speaker for well-balanced output with smooth highs, laid-back midrange and full, round lows. The modified preamp circuitry improves overdriven note definition, so you’ll have articulate sound no matter how hard you push this amp. The onboard spring reverb has been modified to add smoothness, so you still get rich, shimmering tone, no matter how much reverb you use.
The updated aesthetics include a lightweight pine cabinet, improved control panel texture and graphics, ivory pointer knobs, steel-reinforced strap handle and lightly-aged silver grille cloth, giving it the unmistakable look and vibe you can only get from a Fender amp. Reliable, flexible and pedalfriendly, the Hot Rod Deluxe IV is an ideal addition to any electric guitarist’s amp collection.

MODIFIED PREAMP CIRCUITRY
The modified preamp circuitry offers greater tonal definition and clarity, even when pushing the amp into overdrive, so your tone remains articulate no matter how hard you push it.
MODIFIED SPRING REVERB
This amp’s modified spring reverb offers the same luscious ambient sound you know and love, but with improved smoothness to dial in your sound at any volume.
Hailing from the U.K., Celestion speakers are acclaimed worldwide for their distinctly rock ‘n’ roll flavor, with a more modern sound and utterly classic roar when pushed.
LIGHTLY AGED GRILLE CLOTH
The Hot Rod Deluxe IV features the classic Fender look of sparkling silver grille cloth, lightly aged to give it even more mojo.
LIGHTWEIGHT PINE CABINET
Lightweight, yet strong, pine was used to craft Fender amps in the 1950s and ’60s, making for more resonant and more “musical” speaker cabinets.
IVORY POINTER KNOBS
In a nod to our illustrious past, we added ivory pointer knobs, an original-era design element.
