"Eric had what he considered to be the Holy Grail of amps [the 1957 Twin Amp in Lot 92]. But since he only had one he was afraid of damaging it on tour... Our mission was to clone that amp, which was a quite difficult task. We first analysed Eric's vintage amp to the specs then we searched for old parts. After all that, it still didn't sound right. At that point, John Page suggested old pinewood. We found some that came from an old church's floor and that made the difference. We nailed it and we built a total of three. We built them and then subjected them to the acid test... Eric's ear. He loved them and declared them to be the exact replicas and gave one to BB King as a gift."more
