The Small Box Lightning in British Racing Green is a modern classic.  

This amp was built in 1994.  It appears to have a road case that either came with it or was ordered for it around the time when it was sold as a new amp - the amp is so clean.

It is easy to see that there are no changes to the amp whatsoever as all the solder points were coated when the amp is built.

It sounds amazing, of course like a solidly built Vox, as intended. 

Small and portable - manageable even in the case.
