Cool and rare original 8-WATT 1960 Gibson GA-8T Gibsonette Combo with Tremolo that sounds like Link Wray's "Rumble"!!

 

Sure, this sweetie can sound somewhat in between a 60’s Marshall and 50’s Fender Princeton and has nearly the same layout as the Brownface Princeton as well, but for 1/2 the money...

 

And yes, it can sound nice with clean and crisp tones and a lovely tremolo on top. But thats not why you buy this amp. You want this amp because you can turn into a raging bull when pushed with bag full of grit and bite in the tone. Bad ass overdrive sounds from this little gem! But yeah, turn the volume down on the guitar and its a super smooth jazz box as well.

 

Now 8 Watt doesn't sound like much but this Class-A combo sounds surprisingly loud. Perfect for recording or small venue gigs, or mic' it up and your boss!

 

Its all original including the hyper rare wooden foot-switch (!!), transformers, pots, cabinet, grill-cloth, logo, covering and most caps and electronics. The original 10-inch speaker was replaced as the old ones sound too thin and boxy.
