Description & Specs

One amp that defined the LA and Nashville Studio Sound of the 1970’s and into the ‘80s was a modified by Paul Rivera Fender Deluxe Reverb. Now, Rivera has built this amp to celebrate the legendary tones recorded by illustrious artists for our 35th Anniversary. Introducing the Rivera Stage IV.

Stage IV was the ultimate modification level for Fender and Marshall amplifiers; it gave top players advanced features like channel switching, active effects loops with level controls, and other key innovations that were previously unavailable in tube amps. Eventually, Fender came knocking.  After it hired Paul, many of the ideals embodied in his modified amps became the foundation for the Rivera era of Fender amps in the 1980s.  Amps like the Super Champ are considered by many to be the most collectible and appreciated of modern Fender amplifiers. Factory production of Rivera amps began shortly after Paul’s departure from Fender. Rivera Amplification now proudly celebrates its 35th year in business by releasing the Rivera Stage IV.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
