These were considered a step above the student models (Champ, Harvard, Princeton) which remained tweed-covered in 1960.
Grillclothes were initially the same as those used in the previous tweed era (i.e.: maroon with gold stripe).
They are all very rare today and few have survived.
The first amplifiers made in-house by Fender is the Woodie series, built in 1946 through 1948.
The finishes were baked in the Kauffman family oven.
They were made in three different sizes, 1×8" (one 8" speaker), 1×10", and 1×15".
Other notable accomplishments of this period include the shift of the top-of-the-line model from the traditional Twin-Amp to include other models, like the Vibrasonic Amp in early 1960, as well as the blonde Showman Amp in 1961.
The name 'brownface' stems from the brown-colored control panels, common to both the brown- and cream/blonde- Tolex-covered amps.
