American amp manufacturer Fargen, has released the second amp in its line that honours the Beatles' guitarist.
The JL-15 combines John Lennon's signature tone from the '60s and '70s with his world-renowned self-portrait. The amp is a production version modeled after the limited edition Artist Series announced last December. The JL-15 is built with the same circuit, featuring a two-way 'Decade Switch' that switches between distinctive John Lennon tones across the '60s and '70s.
The amp also features a proprietary WGS ceramic speaker and a special acoustically transparent and UV-protected grill cloth that serves as the canvas for John Lennon's iconic self-portrait.
"I've taken the design and features from the original limited edition Lennon Artist Series and built them into the JL-15, which is more accessible by players at-large, priced as the market would expect in a boutique combo," says Ben Fargen, founder of Fargen amps. "The tones produced by this amp are extremely accurate and based on years of knowledge and experience, not available like this elsewhere in the market."
