Very Rare 1961 JMI Vox AC-15/4 Twin speaker Fawn Rexine Guitar Combo/John Lennon

£5,500.00

Here we have an incredible opportunity for you to purchase this amazing and very rare 1961, JMI Vox AC-15/4 Twin speaker guitar combo, finished in her original fawn Rexine covering, with copper panel. The AC15 was the preferred amp used by John Lennon back in the early 60s. Our engineer has fully serviced and replaced any component parts that were required, which were just the usual aged resistors and capacitors, in order to assure that the amp performs at its best, the original parts are included with the sale, it has the original power and output transformers and JMI foot switch, which operates the vibrato and tremolo which also functions perfectly. When we aquired it, it was fitted with a pair of Eminence speakers, so we sourced and fitted a pair of 1962 Celestion blue back speakers, the speakers have had a professional re-cone to the original and true specification and are number ink stamped, it has a very low and cool serial number of 4567 N and comes with what is possibly the original cover, the cover does require some attention i.e., taking it to a seamstress to re-stitch some of the piped edges and leather reinforced handle slot surrounds, but there are no rips or tears in the actual fabric. It has the original fawn ‘Rexine’ covering on the cabinet, when it came to us, it had been painted black, which was apparently the fashionable colour of the day, but by using a water-based, solvent free, paint stripper we have managed to remove 90% of the paint, leaving its original fawn covering, we didn’t want to take any more paint off in case it degraded the Rexine. However, of course should you wish, it could be completely recovered in original period style fawn fabric, or of course you could repaint it back to black, (Not recommend)

This is a fantastic sounding amp and the chances of coming across another one would be slim to zero. It is classed is the ‘holy grail’ of Vox AC amps and was only made for a very short time. Many consider the AC15/4 to have the best tone of all the AC models due to the way it was wired and the ability to drive the preamp high.

This amp has been maintained to work properly and can be plugged in and turned up immediately after purchase, for that amazing Vox sound.

Collection only, we will not ship sorry, but can possibly meet up/deliver within 30 miles of Droitwich.
