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.An aluminum trim strip surrounded the speaker panel for roughly one year.The circuitry stayed the same as the blackface amps until roughly 1968 when CBS added their ill-received modifications; the worst of these were removed by 1969.They use two 5881/6L6GC power tubes, a GZ34 tube rectifier and are rated at roughly 40 watts. The front panel was polished aluminum ("silverface") with blue block lettering and the grill cloth changed to silver with blue threads (some later Pro Reverbs were sold with a silver/orange sparkle grill cloth).
At this same time, the logo lost it’s tail and power was boosted to 70 watts.

Because of this, at the time the Pro Reverb did not find the widespread popularity of amplifiers such as the Fender Twin, but in recent years it has seen a revival and has become highly sought after due to its rarity and excellent tonal characteristics. Since CBS bought out Fender in January 1965, all of them are "post-CBS" Fenders.
Even so, some have "Fender Electric Instruments Co." on the front panel under the Pro Reverb Amp logo instead of the CBS era "Fender Musical Instruments." The original Pro Reverbs are "blackface"—they have black control panels with white lettering, script logo, silver/black/white grill clothes, raised "tailed"-style Fender logo on the grill cloth and black Tolex covering.
