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
