A vintage 1936 Gibson EH-150 in amazing cosmetic condition--the famous "Charlie Christian" amp. Quite versatile for an amp of its era, it offers nice, thick clean tones from the instrument input and crunchy overdrive from the mic input. With the 'Bass Tone' engaged this amp has great bottom end. This model was clearly the pinnacle of its era, and it is no wonder why it remains a desirable vintage amp. This amp has just been serviced with brand new filter capacitors. It is fully functional and sounds fantastic. Includes original canvas slip cover.
