After using many other bass amplifiers and cabinets, including Marshall amplifiers and the Rickenbacker Transonic series, John Paul Jones purchased (3) Acoustic 360 - 361PP Amplifier Combos in May 1969. Jones used (2) of these combos on stage as his main amplifiers, with (1) as a backup, with the brief exception of a two week span in June 1972, when he used the Univox 1510 System. He used the Acoustic 360 Preamp through the Earls Court shows in 1975 and switched to a Gallien Kruger GMT 600B Amplifier for the 1977 US Tour, however continued to use the Acoustic 361PP Powered Cabinet through some dates of the 1980 Tour Over Europe.

The (3) Acoustic 360 - 361PP combos were purchased by a member of the band The Jaguars from John Paul Jones in 1977. He was working at a guitar shop on Charing Cross Road, London at the time and was contacted by John Paul Jones' assistant who told him that Jones wished to dispose of three such set ups as he was upgrading his stage equipment. Another fellow band member of The Jaguars was given (1) set of the Acoustic 360 - 361 combos (360 Serial #L1409 - 361 Serial #M1032) and the child of that other members sold the set back to Acoustic Amplification via auction at Christie's on July 10, 2008 for $27,115.00.

John Paul Jones said in a 2010 Bass Player interview that one of the Acoustic 360 Preamps had caught on fire at the end of one show. "I suppose the power amp got overheated," he quipped.
