Hank Marvin Amplifiers and some history

There has already been heaps written and published about Hank Marvin. Based in Perth Western Australia for the last thirty odd years and a lifetime of smash hits we just thought our readers may be interested in some of the great articles published about Hank. The following snippet can wet your appetite for more and the link is at the end just in case you wish to read it all.

This article will attempt to draw together knowledge about the electric guitars used by Hank Marvin, particularly during his time with The Shadows. It has the word “some” in the title because of the extensive period of time over which Hank has performed and also the wide range of music genres covered. He has certainly played many, many more instruments than listed here, particularly after The Shadows early period, and it would be almost impossible to try for a complete list. In particular, I have focused on those known to have been used either in recording or in concert, and so many of the Fender Custom Shop Hank Marvin “signature” guitars, including those released as the 25th and 40th,  anniversary models are not yet included, even though Hank may have played a role in the development of some of them.
