The body is definitely a Harmony Sovereign. I have a six string version and the top in your picture is identical to mine in every way. Mine does not bow out in the back. The sides and the neck look th...
Hey, Vintagesteel0913, you have a fabulous site. I somehow missed it when you posted 4 years ago. BTW, Keb Mo and blues legend Ray Reed's signatures are now also on the amp. Been playing with Ray for...
Hey guys, I just noticed that this sight still has my old email address from 6 years ago. My email now is firstname.lastname@example.org --- Gator
Hey guys, since I last commented on this amp, Johnny Winter signed it. He and I were both at the SRV Commerative Concert in Fort Worth (along with Anson Funderburg and some other great guitarists). I...
But you are right about the using the mic input. When I plug in my 335, it just has the nastiest and strongest natural distortion I've ever heard. There is a guy on youtube who demonstrates his and us...
I'm not aware of a serial number on these amps. There is a metal tag attached to the amp console and the paper tag on the back amp cover. Both just say Gibson Kalamazoo but no model or serial number ...
Do NOT do anyting yet, like try to restore the varnish. The more original it is, the more valuable. If you really want to eventually sell it, contact a good, knowledgeable guitar tech (like bill@studi...
I saw one of these in a little boutique guitar shop in Albuquerque, NM last year. Very cool amp---great sound.
Thanks, musikchoo. Yeah, Jimmie is really sounding great with his current set-up. He's a really nice guy and great (and often under-appreciated ) guitarist by people not into the blues.
Robert, I don't have any plans to sell it right now. I love the amp and actually use it when I fly to Memphis and do a blues trip down Hwy 61 through Mississippi. It's the only really quality tube amp...
Wow! This is truly amazing. Larry, I thought my old '37 EH-150 Gibson amp had a lot of signatures, but this beats it all.
The handle looks very much like the original. Of course, my handle is faded, but it does appear that it was originally a "clear" leather finish vs. dark. Good luck with your idea. -Gator
MachinistChest, In answer to your question, the measurement is exactly 6 1/2 inches.
Three weeks ago Jimmie Vaughan was in town and I got together with him (two old blues guys from Texas catching up). I showed him the amp and asked him to sign it. He said, "Gator, I'm not worthy to s...
I'll get the measurements for you.
If you can get me the serial number, I can find out what it's worth. I couldn't tell by the picture. The serial number will allow me to find out the model and year made. Also, if you had a good pic...
