PG's Joe Coffey is On Location at NAMM '09 where he visits the Vox Amplification booth. In this video, we get to check out Vox's latest offering, a 15 watt head called the Night Train. As you'll hear in the demo, this baby cooks up some old school Vox tones, yet provides that new-age attack and tone control. The Night Train comes two 12AX& preamp tubes and 2 EL84 tubes. Also, you can dial down to 7.5 watts in a triode mode.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
