A Red Bear is the closest I'd ever come to owning a Gibson amp. They aren't my cup of tea.

The '55 GA-77 I used to borrow from my buddy Mike is hands-down the best amp I've ever used. So dark, so loud, so woody. The mids! And it took pedals BEAUTIFULLY.

Well, now I'm off to Reverb. Again.

I have a GA-6—I believe it's a 59? Sounds nuts.

If there was ONE Gibson amp that one should own. What would it be?

I don't own a Gibson amp but I wouldn't mind a Gibson era Orange..!

I own two! A 1946 Gibson BR-6, and a 1964 Gibson GA17RVT.

I definitely am always on the look out for more Gibson amps, anything from the EH series, a BR3 (which is essentially a late version of the EH185). Would also love a GA-40.

Can't get enough of these amps!
