GIBSON VINTAGE AMPS
Here we want to present some nice old Gibson Guitar-Amps, that are worth to be looked at and to be studied carefully.
Clockwise from top left, 1947 GA-25, 1950 GA-50, 1951 GA-20, 1959 GA-5T, 1957 GA-6 .
Gibson started out making amplifiers for their Electric Hawaiian guitars in the 1930s. Production was suspended during the Second World War, but resumed in about 1946. Especially from the late 1940s to the late 1960s, Gibson made a line of guitar amplifiers that rival the much better known Fender amps in tone and surpass them in quality. Gibson’s customers were mostly jazzmen and I’m guessing they were looking for that typical smooth mellow tone.
