I FOUND THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ON-LINE.
"Chicago Musical Instruments SG system tube amp.

This is a true vintage tube amp that promises true vintage tone.

Amp features include phase shifter, and reverb.

SG Systems amps had a hybrid tube power section and solid-state preamp with two extremely rare RCA 8417 power tubes and an RCA 12AX7A (the latter is possibly a phase inverter, driving the two power tubes, similar to the early MusicMan amps, which had a 12AX7 phase inverter between the solid-state preamp and the power sections).

Designed by Bob Crooks of Standel fame and manufactured by CMI ELectronics (Chicago Musical Instruments - former parent of Gibson - later to become Norlin Music)"

This model has "two channels, one clean and one with effects, each with two inputs (Hi and Lo impedance).

Channel two includes a built-in Maestro (PS-1) Phase Shifter with 3 speeds, reverb, "wave form" (Maestro sine “fuzz”) distortion, and a “Notch Shift" feature that simulates an EQ with 4 presets"
