    A 1963 Vox AC-30 T for your delectation.

    Introduced in 1958 at the request of Hank Marvin, the AC-30 would go on to be a touchstone of guitar tone, gracing stages all over the world. 

    This amp is in great condition as you can see from the pictures. The basket weave tolex, a feature introduced in 1963, is free of tears and any real signs of wear. The grill cloth has worn a little but is not too damaged.  The copper anodised control plate has a few minor marks but nothing too substantial.

    Internally a few of the power capacitors and resistors have been replaced and the amp has been thoroughly tested to make sure it's safe. As you’d imagine, for these amps to work as they should, some of the components need to be updated. A jack for an external speaker has been added and there is a very neatly plugged hole in the upper back panel.

    Original ironwork is provided courtesy of Haddon or Albion.

    Shipping quoted is a guess and will vary a lot depending on the country it is sold to.

    This amp has a great tone, very evocative of the period with plenty of headroom.

    Anyone searching for that true JMI period tone need look no further. A great sounding amp in such fantastic condition, it would be madness to walk away.
