1965 Gibson GA-19RVT

Gibson’s mid-1960’s GA-19RVT Falcon is a 1x12 combo with footswitch-controlled reverb and trem, and about 15 watts of power. The model’s reverb is likely its most famous attribute. It was wired quite differently than the Fender ‘verb amps of the day and allowed players to play through just the reverb circuit for some incredibly textured and almost spooky sounds.

This example has had a handy tone-shaping circuit added with a 3 position switch in place of the second instrument input. The small output transformer has been replaced, and the speaker is a modern Eminence. It’s otherwise in very clean shape and the original footswitch is still with it. A great sounding and fun amp.
