One of the earliest adopters of the AC-100 Mk I head was Paul McCartney. McCartney took delivery of his in December 1963. His new amp head would accompany the Beatles to America in 1964 and was seen in the movie "A Hard Day's Night."
The cabinet for the AC-100 Mk I amp head was constructed of 3/8" plywood. As a result, many refer to this model as the "thin edge" AC-100 amp head.
Paul McCartney was also supplied a new speaker cabinet to accommodate the increased power of the new AC-100 head. At first, the Vox T.60 speaker cabinet, equipped with one 15" speaker and one 12" speaker, seemed to be a candidate to pair with the AC-100 Mk I head. However, the limited 50 watt power handling capacity of the T.60 cabinet proved a problem. Vox solved this by modifying the T.60 baffle to accommodate a pair of fifty watt 15" speakers while preserving the dimensions of the original T.60 speaker cabinet. While Vox officially called the new 100 watt cabinet the "AC-100 Bass Enclosure," Vox enthusiasts often refer to it as the "T.100."
