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

The author has at least one amplifier wrong, which makes me suspect about the general usefulness of the book. I have a Gibson GA8-T, and it has a 10 inch speaker, not a 12 inch speaker as Mr Marx writes in the book. It also tests out at about 9 watts (or so), not the 15 as he writes. The schematics are, however, very detailed and useful. I gave the CD to the amp tech who does a LOT of work around greater Detroit, and he was very happy. In short, read and verify before making any moves (like buying a replacement speaker).
Wat!?
When this book showed up I couldn't put it down until I had read everything relating to the half dozen Gibson amps I already own. It was very easy to pinpoint the models and years of manufacture. I popped in the CD and immediately printed out the operators manuals for all the amps I own, as well as the tube charts for each. A copy of this info will always be with each amp.

Reading through the amp descriptions, I've settled upon a couple of amps I'm now dying to own, and will be searching out.

Layout of the book is pretty straight forward, the pictures are all clear, and the year-to-year production totals is nice to know. I would have liked to see the inards of a few more of the models, and some servicing recommendations. I know that there are other books about tube amp repair, but a small section could have easily been included.

There is really no mention in the book as to which of the models are collectable or desireable. You'll have to come to your own conclusions as to that subject.

I'm am really gratefull to the author for compiling this information and finally having a book dedicated to just Gibson amps. Yahoo!!!

There is a lot of good information and pictures in this book, but the quality of it is lacking compared to other books like it. It is hard to explain, but the book feels like a thicker coloring book and the pages are mostly black and white. There is a small section that is color with some nice shots of various amps, but I was really disappointed not seeing the color pictures of the older amps, etc. I love the information that it provides, but I also love me some guitar/amp porn too and this is lacking on that for sure!

A good book on the history of Gibson amps. The schematics would be very useful to someone who has the electronic knowledge to use them. It has a high resale value too.

A must for all GIBSON Amplifiers fans. Coverage was very good, and the photo section, though missing some ,showed beautiful examples of Amps of the period.
I highly recommend it.
Rolorel
Great book with lots of detailed information about Gibson, Maestro, and Kalamazoo amps.
Thabel
This has a ton of holes, and loads of speculation in it, as well as a total disregard for technical information on ALL of the solid state amps Gibson made. I like the book, but it is quite disappointing in many aspects. The author had an extreme bias toward the tube amps, and the solid state stuff is barely glossed over. It may have possibly been biased by current marketing trends too. Just enough information to keep them coming back to buy more junk.
great book for a great price!
