Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
I was lucky enough to help Jim Elyes with his incredible book: “Vox Amps- The JMI Years” and I saw a lot of photos. Basically the process was JMI had 3 different chassis builders/companies. Most of those workers were women. As well they two or three cabinet builders. Everything would be trucked to Dartford and assembled by these women, tested and boxed then shipped to various music shops. The serial number plate on the back was the last thing to go on. That plate is the actual serial number! The number stamped on the chassis was actually an inventory number as around late ‘62/early ‘63 there was some in-house missing amp chassis so chassis started receiving numbers.
anyway, in most companies who build guitar amps, etc. I think you’ll find that most of the work is done by women.
