    '61 Gibson GA-8T Discoverer

    Absolutely thrilled with this new to me 1961 Gibson GA-8T Discoverer. Great harmonic breakup, ECL82 power tubes. Tone knob can get really bright, have it set around 3. Just a fantastic find and cleans up so well with guitar volume knob.

    I've had a '62/'63 Falcon for years but never knew about the GA-8T.

    If you come across one, give it a try.

    Cool amp!

    That's an interesting time for Gibson amps. Love those narrow turret boards!

    I had a tweed Maestro GA1-RT from either '60 or '61. Fun amp.

    Beautiful! I had a `60 GA-20. It was almost as clean as this!
