Fender switched back to the blackface era cosmetics some time in 1980. Twin Reverbs produced between late 1980 and 1982 have a black control panel and silver sparkle grille cloth.

 

This Twin sounds awesomely loud and clean. It's got some rust on the metal details, some light surface wear, some nicks in the tolex and some scratching as you can see, but overall it is looking good. Both tilt legs are there and it also has casters. It is in good working order, all controls and features work well and the tubes are good. It sounds awesome, its that classic Twin tone!
