In the middle of the tour, The Who had to break away on a couple of off days and go to Tennessee to record a song called “I Can See For Miles”.
They had damaged their amplifiers so bad because on their ending song called “My Generation”, they would kick the drum kits over, jam the guitars into the speaker cabinets of the Vox Super Beatle amps, knock the amps over, and break the guitars and throw them into the audience.
that tell the model year; basically, you just have to find someone who knows.
Italians used random numbers; you could have a VOX from the future! I collect VOXes and find that there were subtle differences between annual models like pickguard styles, truss rod covers, knobs, etc.
When the tour was over, they left all of their broken gear with the Blues Magoos, and we put it in the garage of our band house.
