1965 Gibson GA-20 RVT Minuteman  w/ Reverb & Tremolo Recently Serviced! Jensen 12" speaker! image

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

Up for sale, a 1965 Gibson GA-20 RVT "Minuteman" in excellent condition and in good working order.  Fresh back from our techs here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar, this amp has been completely gone through to sound its best including an upgraded reverb tank and wiring, fresh tubes where needed, partial recap of the power supply, and a thorough checkup to make sure the amp was working within original factory spec.  Often overlooked, but actually a wonderful little amp with twangy, sparkling cleans, the GA-20 offers quite a bit of versatility to the player with throbbing tremolo, lush reverb (from a full size two-spring tank) and some nice overdriven tones when you really open up the volume and dial in the EQ! 

The original transformers date the amp to 1965, which also matches the date code on the original Jensen 12" ceramic speaker.  The chassis itself is quite clean, with all of the original knobs intact and crisp lettering on the faceplate.  The reverb tank is a brand new MOD two-spring tank which is the correct impedance for this particular Gibson circuit and has a tone similar to the Fender amps of the era.  Cosmetically, this amp is in good overall condition, with stock rough black covering, gray grillcloth and large "Gibson" logo.  There is one small missing patch of covering on the left hand rear corner and some discoloration on the grillcloth, but we've spiffed this amp up and it looks pretty great for its age.

Don't miss out on this vintage all tube Gibson 1x12 combo amplifier featuring reverb and tremolo!
