    I am selling my '54-'56'ish GA-40 Gibson amp. This is a perfect tube archtop amp powered by two 6V6's with pre-amp powered by two 5879's, one 7025, and one 6SQ7 and a 5Y3 rectifier. It was for a few years in the '50's as an accordion amplifier and then sat in an attic under cover from '61 to 2012. It was reconditioned in 2012 with replacement of only new "old stock" Gibson specification parts (that is, kept as original equipment as possible). Signal path components are period correct new-old stock. Filter caps and three wire grounded AC cord are modern/safe components. Restoration work and tubes tested by a Fender electrical engineer more recently by Bill Webb at Austin Vintage Guitar. Tremolo pedal works and sounds beautiful. Amp is silent when not being played, no cracking or hissing. Bill also recently replaced the handle with a replica leather handle. I also replaced the original P12Q speaker with an age appropriate P12N that was removed from a Hammond organ. It sounds more lush with the P12N, easily rivaling my '59 Tweed Deluxe. I am only selling it because I recently acquired a GA-50 and don't need both. With the P12N I am asking $2100 plus shipping.
