John Lennon's Vox Amp Stand

The VOX AC30 Amp stand pictured below was once owned by John Lennon who swapped it with Tony Crane of The Merseybeats in the 1960s for one of his new stands on castor wheels.  The Merseybeats ceased using the stand in the 1970s and it has been in storage ever since, along with a similar stand that is also part of this lot.


This amazing piece of Beatles history is up of sale in our Annual Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction later this month and is estimated to reach between £2000 to £3000.

Own A Piece Of Merseybeats History - 1964 Gibson Firebird Guitar

I think this may be my favourite item this year.

It was played on the recordings of The Merseybeats hit records : Don’t Turn Around, Wishin’ & Hopin’, I Stand Accused, Last Night, I Love You Yes I Do . It was also played on the hit record Sorrow (The Merseys) alongside Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones who were session musicians at the time as well as on hit recordings, television appearances and live gigs from 1964 through to the 1990’s.  The guitar body was then refurbished and kept at home for private use.

Handbill for The Beatles at Heswall Jazz Club 1962

Handbills can be very rare items of memorabilia as they were items designed to be discarded after they had served their purpose, so more ended up in the bin than being kept. This makes them highly sought after items with collectors, particularly if it's one they don't have.



A Handbill for The Beatles at Heswall Jazz Club on 24th March 1962 is going under the hammer at our Annual Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction later this month.
And it's current estimate is  £1500-£1700
