Electric guitar manufacturer Gibson has hailed the enduring appeal of the Vox AC30.

According to the company, the guitar amp has been used by many legendary artists over the years, including Pete Townshend of The Who, Brian May of Queen and the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl.

Gibson stated that Vox had been producing its AC15 model at the time that rock 'n' roll started to take off in the late 1950s.

However, it said that as the genre grew in popularity, bands such as The Shadows started to demand more powerful guitar amplifiers and asked Vox to build such a device.

This marked the birth of the AC30, a model described by Gibson as a more "versatile and rocking" alternative to its predecessors.

"It continues, in both its original and reissue formats, to be one of the most popular tube amps in the history of the electric guitar," Gibson commented.

Other famous AC30 users include The Edge of U2, Justin Hayward from the Moody Blues, Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones and late Irish guitarist Rory Gallagher.
