Hi everyone. This is a 1960s Gibson amp belonging to Adam Granduciel of the war on drugs. Can anyone tell me the model please?

Very similar in features to a mid-1960's Gibson GA-5, also known as a Skylark.

Hard to tell though, the photo is pretty fuzzy.

I can't see any of the usual Gibson markings.

Am I alone in this?

This is a tough one without any of the Gibson markings. Gibson also didn't produce that many black amps and none of which I found matched this one. It's probably not a Gibson amp. But then again that guy has an arsenal of vintage amps, who knows...

Perhaps this might be more helpful? https://www.premierg...he-war-on-drugs

The closest amp that I could think of was this GA-5WT, but it doesn't really look the same either............. It might not be a Gibson............

From the quality of the picture you have provided, I can definitely say it is indeed an amplifier.....siting on a radiator.....maybe.

We would need pictures of the front and back, any labels and such......it's just too hard to tell what it is.
