GIBSON AMPLIFIERS 1933-2008: 75 YEARS OF THE GOLD TONE
By Wallace Marx Jr.
Gibson played a huge role in the development of guitar amplifiers, and this excellent book details the evolution of these products from the company’s first “Electric Amplifier” of 1933 to the Super Goldtone models of today. Packed with photos and period advertisements, this book travels though time to describe Gibson’s development of the EH series (1933-1941), the BR series (1942-1947), the iconic GA series (1948-1962), and the Crestline, Power-Plus, and solid-state models that the company produced from 1963 to 1968, which were the last to be made before CMI acquired Gibson and temporarily ended its amplifier production.
