I'm thinking early-mid 60's. It'll probably have that old Gibson sound, which is kinda like tweed fender mixed with Ampeg. I've not played that particular model, but I have played a couple GA20RVT's and they sound great.
HNFAD. I'd love me some vintage gear.

I haven't played it yet. A couple reasons.

First, my teacher, who is 77, cut the thing in half. It was originally a 4x10 combo. He is a little guy and it was too heavy for him. Honestly, I don't know what ohm speaker I need.

Second, it is dirty as all hell. I'm cleaning it as we speak. If you were to see this guys house, your jaw would drop. So much ****. Cool **** like old tube stereos and the like. His house is like a maze it is so cluttered. His wife died about 10 years ago and he just collects stuff.

I emailed Gibson and honestly, I really haven't searched much on this amp yet. I don't drink, but last night. I had 5 or 6 vodka and Red Bulls, so I'm a little slow this morning.

I'll have gut shots once the chassis is out.

This has to be ancient... When's the last time Gibson has come out with a new amp? (hopefully I don't look like a retard for saying that lol)

Free, vintage gear... I don't think it gets m uch better than that
