    Less than 20 Mojave RI's made - far superior quality wise to the kitchen sink originals. There were only 5-6 originals made.

    Hey Miles. Have you actually played one and loved it? Is it musical or just really different? thanks.

    AXIS amp. Jimmy Page used one for "Since I've Been Loving You". Killer tone. Never seen one though.

    1954 Premier 71 aka "The Link Wray" model (listen to his 1950s/60s recordings). Old school Jensen field-coil 12" and 2 Jensen 3" pm speakers. 20 something watts and fat, musical tremolo. Yummy!

    Just restored this one, electronics etc:

    Here's the re-cap job I did. I gutted all the old cardboard caps and restuffed them with new ones hidden inside. Plus, many replaced resistors etc. My first electrical restoration, and the amp sounds killer.

    Outta site, Rumble. Great job!!

    Here's another rare one. PANaramic 1210...with SS rectifier and original Jensen speaker. You'll see few 1210s around...but very, very few with SS rectifier or Jensen.

    These were made by Estey Electronics and we a derivative of the better known 213 Troubadour. It features the same Magnatone vibrato, but like many PANaramic version, also comes with a stereo input that enables you to play through the high input of each channel simultaneously. It's really krazy-kool sounding. Has some wicked grind to it like my Supro 1624T and cleans up really nicely. Here's a clip with it (it's on the right).

    Tremendous job at restoration! Link Wray was a legend! "Rumble", "Apache"!
    Would love to hear some clips of those guitars into that beauty!
