Gibson GA79RVT Stereo Amplifier, 1966

Here’s a Gibson GA79RVT Multi-Stereo combo amp, featuring two ten inch speakers in a wedge cabinet each powered by its own 15 watt amplifier. This model was introduced in 1960 as the GA-79 and upgraded with Reverb and Tremolo to the GA-79RVT in 1961, and the entire line was discontinued in 1967 when Gibson ceased amp production in Kalamazoo. On this example, the two 10-inch CTS speakers on this Gibson GA79RVT bear dates of the 8th week of 1966 – late February, and the Tolex covering is black faux-gator with a naturally faded silver/grey grille cloth.
