It's a topboost-model, with the tb-knobs on the controlpanel. I can't say for sure if they are original, but I think so, because they look old and "authentic". on the speakers, but a handwritten number is x5671 (the x stands for a number i cannot decipher, i could be either a 2 or a 9).The actual ac-30 serial number is 22023, and the amp is a scandinavian model distributed by a swedish company. ) asked me at one time for some serial numbers on some of my VOX guitars. I've got to photograph a couple Vox Shadows I have for the site.Here'a few: Super Lynx Deluxe -sunburst - 320226 Spitfire -218559 Super Meteor - 228509 Dominator - 63380 Cougar Sunburst - 259397 Cougar Red - 295491 Cougar Fireburst (Crucianelli) - 70094 Country Western - 356216 I have started digging out guitars and related stuff and making lists so I can get them insured seperately. Theres a three pickup (Dominator) and a two pickup version, both labelled Shadows, and both in red.I just added a Conrad semi-hollowbody bass to my collection. Its very nice but its floating bridge is way too high and its at the bottom of its adjustment range; looks like future surgery is in order.
Even so, certain characteristics can help narrow the date of manufacture to within a year or so. * Small “Jennings” embossed badge on top margin of frame.
One other thing the hole 'selector' where I have something missing at the end, it seems to work ok without whatever was in there do I need to get it replaced?
The center metal handle is absolutely not original.
I especially like the Vox Dominator - much nicer than the standard red finish.
