Gibson GA-75 amplifiers were manufactured between 1950 and 1955. Only about 1247 total were built. Yet this model made musical history in the hands of John Collins with Nat Cole's Trio and his friend Johnny Smith who borrowed Collin's amp to record his quintessential "Moonlight In Vermont" album in 1952.
This particular amp has the original Jensen Alnico 15" speaker stamped 220138 and has been carefully refurbished: updated with a 3-prong power cord, the output transformer replaced and mounted out of the way onto the chassis rather than on the speaker frame, new tolex on the top of the cabinet, and new vintage style leather handle installed. Cover appears to be original brown cloth with plain inside.
Sounds beautiful with an Archtop guitar and ready for another 65+ years of making music!
