From Scottymoore.net: During the two stand up live performances taped at NBC's Burbank studio on June 29, 1968 the amplifier used with Al Casey's Hagstrom was his Benson 200.** Al said "once Elvis had a guitar to play, he needed an amp to play it through, and the Benson is what I had with me."1 Like Al, several LA session players were known to use these in the '60s. "Famed jazz guitarist Howard Roberts and Ron Benson designed and produced the first boutique amps in history with their Benson line of the ’60s. These became a studio standard of the era, presaging the Boogies, Soldanos, Bogners, and Evans of the future." http://www.scottymoore.net/ep68hagstrom.htmlmore
