1959 Gibson GA-18 Explorer Amp

Garrett Park Guitars

This guitar is in our Hall of Fame Collection and is no longer available for purchase.

For your consideration, Garrett Park Guitars presents this 1959 Gibson GA-18 Explorer Amp

This is an amazing sounding little amp. In the '50s Gibson used circuitry and tubes that were found in hi-end audio gear giving their amps great dynamic range. This example is in very nice original condition and has its original Gibson tubes. It has a Jensen P-10R speaker, and a nice tremolo channel too. It also has a nice homemade cover that looks like Mom made it from the curtains. In great shape and working perfectly this amp is ready to rock.
