Fargen Amplification Announces John Lennon Signature Amp Line

The line launches with limited edition Artist and Imagine amps, followed later by a production version of the amps and two effects pedals.

Sacramento, CA (December 11, 2012) -- Fargen Amplification has announced a new line of John Lennon-themed amps and pedals, launching with limited edition Artist and Imagine amps, followed later by a production version of the amps and two effects pedals. Here are the details from the company:

Fargen Amplification is proud to announce the first ever line of John Lennon guitar amplifiers and effect pedals. The line pays tribute to one of the greatest artists of our time, and combines John Lennon’s signature tone with his world-renowned artwork – providing a unique experience for musicians and fans alike.

The limited edition Artist series is available immediately. Built with custom white components throughout, the Artist series features a special acoustically transparent and UV-protected grill cloth that serves as the canvas for John Lennon’s beautiful artwork. Five of John Lennon’s designs are now available in limited numbered editions of 11 each.

The next release will be limited edition Imagine series amplifier. Also built with custom white components throughout, it is finished in beautiful gloss white lacquer, with elements of John Lennon’s artwork shining through. The Imagine series will be available soon, and offered in a limited edition of 51.

“ I am proud, excited, and truly humbled … to have the honor to build this line. John Lennon is an iconic artist, poet, musician and composer … and I am thrilled to bring the vintage John Lennon vibe to his fans, and to musicians across all genres that have been influenced and moved by his genius,” says Ben Fargen, founder.

Both amps include proprietary components and a unique design that dampens cabinet vibration. They utilize Fargen’s “Decade Switch”, allowing the player to instantly switch between distinctive John Lennon tones across the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

Fargen will release additional designs in its John Lennon Artist series, as well as a production series amplifier based on the circuit, and two guitar effect pedals.

Fargen has licensed the rights to produce this line, from Bag One Enterprises and Live Nation Merchandise, and is distributing this on its website, and through it’s network of authorized dealers including music instrument stores and art galleries. Details are available on the website and dealer inquiries are welcome.

Artist Series MSRP $4999.00 USD
