The John Lennon Signature JL-15

T he John Lennon JL-15 amplifier is a truly unique design out of the Fargen Custom Shop. Leave it to Ben Fargen and his amplifier mastery to capture Lennon’s tone in a one-of-a-kind technical marvel of a design.

Enjoy Lennon’s 60′s Liverpool and 70′s Plastic Ono Band tones through the use of the two-way Decade Switch and play through the warmth and depth of boutique amplifier engineering at its best. The rich black tolex provides the perfect frame for John Lennon’s beautiful self-portrait in black-and-white … Lennon’s iconic music and visual art come together.

We use a specially designed grill cloth on which the drawing is printed, and the cabinet’s dovetail-jointed Baltic Birch sides and rear panels, combined with a speaker baffle and incredibly accurate voicing, results in a rich, vintage experience.
