Gibson GA-40 (1960)

Out of Stock

Drool-worthy Gibson GA-40 just in on consignment! 

Originally conceived to be sold alongside Gibson's Les Paul solidbody guitar, the GA-40 has become a legend in its own right. Sporting a pair of 6v6 tubes, the GA-40 puts out around 14-16 watts of glorious vintage tone that's quite a bit louder than those numbers would have you believe. While there are gorgeous and complex clean tones on tap, this amp can roar with the best of them when pushed. The tremolo this vibey amp produces is also a highlight - note the included footswitch. 

Condition: Very good (see pics for expected wear an tear given the age of the amp). The baffle had been replaced and a 15" period-correct Jensen speaker installed. The consigner had the amp serviced right before leaving it with us so it's dialed in and ready to go. 

A gorgeous, legendary amp that can get you into killer vintage tones without breaking the bank. Yes please! 

On consignment, no trades please.
