Price : US $1,325.
I am a player and collector of vintage guitars and amps. I am thinning the herd in order to pay Uncle Sam. I purchased this very cool amp off eBay a while ago and am offering her up here for some lucky fellow. I have not done anything to the amp since purchasing it except play it. This amp is in outstanding all original condition. I dated the amp to 1949 via the # on the 12' Jensen speaker which is 220918. The original owner purchased it new and must have kept in the closet for 50 years. Here is his description:
Vintage Gibson Amp is model GA 50T, made in Kalamazoo MI
in the years of 1948--1952. Because it has no serial #, Gibson could not
give me an exact year. But looking at the handle on the top (which
reminds me of an old refrigerator handle) I would think it's in the 40's.
It has 8 tubes, 3 RCA 6L6, 1 RCA 6SL7, 1 RCA 6N7, and 3 RCA 6SJ7's, all made in
the USA and radiotron, electron tubes; 1 Mallory metal can electrolytic, model
FP376.9. It has 1 LARGE transformer, 3 1/2 ' X 5' X 4
1/2'. It has 1 12' Jensen Alnico 5 concert series PM
speaker made in Chicago
(it has it's own 3' transformer mounted on speaker). Also has
1 8' Jensen Alnico 5 concert series PM speaker made in Chicago. On the
12' speaker these numbers are found 2377-12, on the 8' speaker
the # is 2378-8.
This amp has a tremolo with a foot pedal to switch
it on and off. The nice thing about the foot pedal is that it has it's
own receptacle i
