Paul McCartney and Vox combine their efforts to help communities unearth undetonated mines.

Melville, NY (May 27, 2008) -- Two of music’s biggest players have collaborated again; Vox Amplification and Paul McCartney. This time they are looking to give back to the community by putting up a VOX AC15H1TV amp signed by the music legend onto eBay to be auctioned for charity. The duo’s efforts were combined to benefit a UK-based charity called No More Landmines.

The hand-wired AC15H1TV offers players an outlet to experience the golden tone of Vox. In addition, the engineers at Vox added a few modern ton shaping control enhancements to make it a tonally flexible AC 15.

The charity, that Paul choose, specializes in providing assistance to help communities throughout the world from the threat of unexploded weapons of war.

Make sure you have your calendar open and your internet connection solidified because the auction goes live June 9, 2008. Bidding will last ten days.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
