Fender don't part with that kind of information*, so as part of the website I developed for this amp's care and feeding, I put out a call for serial numbers.
Having introduced the 80-watt “high-powered” tweed 5F8 Twin (VG, March ’09) in ’58, this rapidly expanding Fullerton manufacturer sought another model to help take it more forcefully into the large dance halls and theaters in which the kids were congregating in greater and greater numbers to get jiggy to the new hormone-fueled music.Could Fender make so many PRIIs, considering they were making another 13 amp types in the range at the same time?Then Soren in Denmark started showing serial numbers on his excellent Super Champ website, which is no longer on the web - some of those numbers fell in between some of 'my' PRII numbers.Subtract one from the other and I'll have a rough-cut figure for how many were made. PRII owners were kind enough to start sending their serial numbers in.I was puzzled to see how some of them were separated by over 100,000.
