The prices listed in July 1971 as a preview of the Associated Musical Instrument Industries Fair in August. The Defiant, presumably again just amp and cab, remains at £252. The vignette of the Defiant is an old one from JMI days. As part of the sales push it is described as being "new", which it wasn't in any respect.
July 1972. Production had moved to the Birch-Stolec factory by this point (the move having taken place shortly prior to August 1971). Prices for 1972 will be posted soon.
