100W PA unit (solid state)
The first style of Jennings PA50 and PA100, pictured in the background at the British Musical Industries trade show at the Russell Hotel, London, in 1969 - not 1968 as has been ventured in print. On the right, the 50 watt version with four channels, to its left in oblique view, the PA100.
For the beginnings of JEI in 1968, see this page.
But the PA100 had evidently been designed while Jennings Musical Industries (JMI) was still in existence. The detail below is from the Russell Hotel trade fair in August in 1967 - a pre-production Vox version sits on top of a large Gyrotone Mark IV.
The photograph as a whole is available on this page of the Vox Supreme website.

Two lamps secreted under the top edge illuminate the control panel while the amp is in use. No. 58 is still in good working order.
NEW STYLE (from August 1973)
JEI serial number 110 (1100) - currently in the UK
Not in working order at present - needing new capacitors and some tidying up. But condition, despite the pitting of the face-plate, is not bad.
Serial number unknown
Excellent condition. Sold on ebay in 2012.
JEI serial number 131 (1131) - collection Andras Buruc
Excellent condition. Cosmetic design of control panel changed slightly in relation to amp immediately above.
