Collector’s item: in excellent condition and sounding great: a Fenders Champ in Gibson clothes, the very special and still original 1962 Gibson GA-5T Skylark with Tremolo Tweed. Turn the volume “all the way” and you do not know what you are hearing! Ideal for a heavy overdrive with a Les Paul, SG, Special, etc. etc. Sounds surprisingly nice and bright and crisp at lower volumes. The amplifier still has the original bakelite knots, fuse, pilot light, handle, tweed, cabinet, chassis power word, transformers, speaker and electronics. And the original manual and Jensen tags that are stapled on the inside (see photo)!.
The Gibson GA-5 Skylark amplifiers are appreciated more and more for their sound, something that for example bluesharp players knew for a long time. This amplifier has been number one for many years when it comes to the perfect small bluesharp amplifier, and that is no coincidence!
