Peach Guitars | Morgan JS12 - Josh Smith Signature Amp

15 Jun 2023

Josh Smith is one of our favourite players, a blues heavyweight, he shot to fame as a child prodigy before becoming an Emmy nominated songwriter and hotshot producer! With 6 studio albums of his own, Josh has helmed releases by artists such as Eric Gales, Joanne Shaw Taylor, Andy Timmons and even Joe Bonamassa. From his Flat V Studios in LA, he brings his undeniable blues flair to each and every project.

We’ve been fortunate to host Josh here at Peach Guitars and one of the things that really stood out, aside from his blistering technique and impeccable phrasing, was just how good his stage sound was. And there’s a good reason for that, his signature amp, the Morgan JS12 Josh Smith Signature.

The Morgan JS12 Josh Smith Signature was born from the need to have a vintage-style, low wattage tweed amp for a performance with Mick Jagger at the Grammys. If there was ever a gig that required something a little bit extra special it’s definitely a Grammy performance with Sir Mick!  

Based around the popular Morgan PR12, the JS model features some of the mods that Josh's personal Morgan PR amps feature. With classic Blackface tones but with substantially more juice on the low end, this amp is the ultimate grab and go tool. With a super responsive built in reverb and 3db boost switch, you can get true grit even at low volume. 2x 6V6 power tubes and 3x 12AX7 preamp tubes deliver delicious tones every time, it will always find its place in the mix.

Featuring an Eminence JS1250 speaker, this amp is spec’d exactly as Josh intended. It's really reactive to pedals and at just 12w is brilliant in the studio, a major plus point for a producer like Josh.

Fully handwired in the states, this little box of tricks is authentically vintage and produces a super versatile sound. Joe Morgan and his team have really knocked it outta the park with the JS12, deliciously vintage but with that secret tonal sauce that only Joe Morgan knows how to deliver. 

We can’t recommend this amp highly enough, so if you want to get your hands on one click the product link on the side!
