Jbl's have been with the band since the beginning of the band.
Yeah Fender with JBL's were part of the California surf sound of the very early 1960's. I think Dick Dale was the guy who started bothering Fender and JBL, which led to the partnership, eventually leading to the D120F and JBL options. I heard some Ca. locales even offered JBL's at no extra charge bc of the proximity of the room above a garage they were being made in lol
