    New vintage amp day!

    I just had this delivered to my door: A 1959 (presumably, could be 1960 as well) Gibson GA-20T Ranger. 16 watts of sonic bliss, Gibson's answer to the Fender Tweed Deluxe. It sounds killer (I have played to for about 5 minutes only). Breakup comes early, and it is not incredibly loud, but it has an absolute killer blues/rock tone. I'm in love already. I have only tried it at full blast for a few seconds (my neighbors are elderly people and I want to be nice to them), but it has a sweet, creamy overdrive that is absolute bliss to my ears. The speaker is a 12" Tone Tubby San Rafael. Not original of course, but sounds great here.

    Here are a few quick shots:

    Those amps are fantastic. And hemp cone speakers are really tough to beat. Nice combo!
