VINTAGE GIBSON GA-5T GUITAR AMP AMPLIFIER TREMOLO NO RESERVE

You are bidding on a No Reserve Auction for a vintage Gibson Skylark GA-5T Tremolo model amplifier. It has been tested and is in good working condition, but just like any amp this age with all original tubes and electronics, it will need to be benched sooner or later, so plan that into your bidding. The handle has been torn but otherwise the amp is in decent cosmetic shape for its age. The Rhino Hide is in good shape and the grill cloth is tear free, all of the knobs are original to the amp

It has had the original speaker replaced with a Peavey Blue Marvel, but other than that the guts all appear to be original, oh the old rotted chord has been replaced. The speaker is an easy fix on eBay if you want to replace it with a vintage piece.

is some info gatd from a web site:
In 1965 and 1966 Gibson gave the Skylark another major design overhaul. These are commonly referred to as "white panel" amps.

They are notable for their rough black "elephant hide" tolex, silver grill cloth, and Fender style 1-10 marked knobs.
The tube compliment for the GA-5T in this series is:
The GA-5T used:
1-6EU7 (pre amp),
1-6C4 (phase inverter),
2-6BQ5 (in a push-pull power amp design)
solid state rectification via 2 diodes.
