Just a glance at the book makes it clear that an obsession has been at work here, but reading it reveals a depth that could not have been inspired by obsession alone. Elyea says that after years of waiting for the next great book on Vox to hit the stores, it dawned on him one day that he would be the one to write it.“At that moment, there was no question,” he tells me.gold plated logo, gold grill molding, white grill piping, three Vox handles, and eight black plastic two pin corners.
Elyea informs me that there are “some other things” that he would’ve liked to include in the book, but it’s hard to imagine what could’ve been left out.Describing the way the plan of the book took shape over time, Elyea says, “Like a fool, I thought it would be easy.The original idea was to have a thirty-five-page field guide with seven or eight charts, some basic info, and photos of some of my collection.From there the obsession began to find a focus—or perhaps, more accurately, a purpose.The painstaking attention to detail recorded in these pages is extraordinary; it is the product of a keen appetite for knowledge.First introduced to the US market in April 2005, the AC-30CC2 was the most popular amplifier model in the Custom Classic Series.The all tube, 30 watt amp featured a baltic birch enclosure with all the classic Vox cosmetic touches: basket weave vinhyde, brown Vox diamond grill (or fret) cloth, gold piping.“Then, I realized I had to do all the amps,” he says, “not just my favorites.As I began to research the other models, I began to see that they were all cool, just in different ways, and they were all my favorites.” But it wasn’t just the details of Vox’s product output during the JMI years that captured the author’s attention.The historical scope of the book began to take on life of its own, as well.“My wife Pam suggested I put an ad in the local Dartford newspapers asking to talk to people that had worked at JMI/Vox or their suppliers,” he recounts. I was deluged with calls from former JMI workers who were anxious to tell their tales.
