Maybe we’ll never be as cool as Hobie from Across The Spider-Verse, but a Fender amp-shaped lunchbox definitely helps!
Featuring a design based on the legendary Fender ’65 Deluxe Reverb amplifier, this officially-licensed lunchbox really knows how to make your meals as tasty as a face-melting guitar solo. Whether you’re a musician, music enthusiast, or if your kid’s a budding rock-head, the Fender Amp Lunchbox is undeniably the coolest way to rock your PBJs!
The 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb amp was easily one of the most used amps in the history of amplified music, seeing hundreds of legendary artists using the amplifier for blues and rock and roll music. The Deluxe Reverb was introduced in 1964 and became an industry standard for electric guitar tones, even being used by The Beatles. It had a moderate power of 22 watts and a 12-inch Jensen speaker, which produced a full, snappy, and crystalline sound that was revered in studios and stages worldwide2. The amp had two channels (normal and vibrato) and four inputs (two normal and two vibrato), as well as tube-driven Fender reverb and tremolo2. The amp was discontinued in 1982, but it remains a classic even today, and perhaps one of the most popular amplifiers ever made! The amp’s lasting legacy made it a perfect choice for the folks at Aquarius, for their music-inclined lunchbox series.
The beauty of the Fender amp lunchbox is that it’s quite literally timeless. You could be in your forties, and this lunchbox would still be the talk of the cafeteria. The tin box features embossed dials on the front along with immaculate detailing of the Fender relief logo, the grill, and even the screws holding the front frame to the cabinet. The back, on the other hand, features a graphic of a 1/4″ jack and the Fender label… and that handle almost exactly copies the one seen on top of Fender’s amps!
In a way, this unique crossover seems just ideal, given that the amp’s naturally boxy shape lends itself perfectly to the lunchbox’s design too. The lunchbox measures 8.5 inches wide, 6 inches tall, and 4.5 inches deep (21.6 cm x 15.2 cm x 11.5 cm) when kept face-up. That’s perfect for a well-balanced meal, complementing the amp’s well-balanced sound rather well!
