Comments

This is one of the first amplifiers to have been offered for sale in recent years with direct links to John Lennon and The Beatles.
and do feel that based on iconic status of the artist the above pricing is exceptionally realistic and we would foresee at auction the amplifier commanding a far greater figure. ( Any instrument that has been touched or played by any BEATLE commands in excess of £100K +++++++ so so do feel it is an EXCEPTIONALLY COOL DEAL that carries undisputed / correct valid provenance )
