George Harrison used a ’62 Fawn AC-30 very early in The Beatles’ career (aside John Lennon’s Fawn AC-15), and famous Vox endorsee Cliff Richards used several Fawn AC-30s with The Shadows. Later players, such as Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, used Fawn AC-30s as well. Sure, there is an incredible alumnus of Vox AC-30 users, but the elite Fawn AC-30 has such a distinct appearance, indicitive of those made during a very small period of time, used by a veritable who’s who of early-’60s British rock stars, and for good reason… this amp sounds even better than it looks!
