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.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.



Reverend Flatroc Bigsby


If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
