Early '65 Gibson GA79RVT.

Very rare and sought after amp with these issues: Missing back panel, missing two top concentric knobs, replacement reissue Jensen speakers. With footswitch. 162336


Produced between 1961 and 1967, the GA-79RVT is a freak of nature in so many ways—most of them very cool ways. This wild-looking, wedge-shaped concoction is actually a stereo amplifier, meant to partner Gibson’s stereo guitars of the era such as the ES-345 and ES-355, but it can also be used in a variety of configurations with any traditional mono electric guitar. In many ways, the GA-79RVT is a fairly simple amp, and is really more a “two amps in one” designed to reproduce a stereo signal, rather than a design that produces a stereo-like effect, such as achieved by the Magnatone 260 and 280, or the Roland Jazz Chorus, both of which convert a mono guitar signal to stereo by slapping on tremolo or chorus effects with slightly different rates applied to the left and right signals.
