A vintage 1936 Gibson EH-150 in great 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 desireable vintage amp. This amp has been cleaned and serviced. It is fully functional and sounds fantastic.
