The Gibson GA-5T Skylark represents Kalamazoo's ultimate iteration of their rebuttal to the Fender Champ, initially conceived as a student model amplifier. However, in today's era, it has evolved into a fantastic choice for both recording and live performance. This slightly more upscale model, the GA-5T with built-in tremolo, hails from 1966, just before Gibson temporarily halted amp production in the late '60s. It boasts a robust Fender-esque layout and construction, featuring a 10-watt output channeled through a 10" Eminence Red Coat Series speaker. Its popularity was notable, albeit fleeting, with a total production of 3,521 units in 1966 and 4,993 units shipped during a mere two-year production span.
This amp has been tested to be fully functioning and the replaced Eminence speaker compliments its vibe wonderfully. A grounded plug has also been installed.
