One of the most unique offerings put up by the company in the 1960s, the Gibson GA-79 RVT Amp offers a vanguard design and enveloping stereo sound in one package.

The real star of the show here is the ability to kick in three-dimensional stereo reverb and tremolo and lather up waves of sonic wash.
