What was Rory's ORIGINAL amp

Well, that song she's humming, could make my guitar start strumming?

What was Rory's ORIGINAL amp

when Rory bought his '61 strat what if anything did he plug into. something tells me it wasn't a vox ac30 because on Ghost Blues he said that in the show bands he was able to plug the guitar into a vox which was a rare thing to be able to do. so what amp did he use at home? did he even have one to practice with originally? we all assumed he had a vox ac30. apparently that isn't true, from his own words.

I remember reading something somewhere and here it is; "My very first guitar was a Rosetti Solid Seven - I think it was Italian - they made the Lucky Seven as well. It was pretty good. I used a Selmer little Giant amp, but I got rid of it because it was distorting! If I had it now I’d be delighted!"

Who knows he may have had another in between the Selmer and the Vox. Here's the article in it's entirety courtesy of roryon.com ; http://www.roryon.com/guit231.htm
