Hi everyone,
I have been all over the internet trying to find out any info on a Gibson Atlas IV that I recently bought.

It seem that these were either unpopular amp or .....something.
I heard that they were made for the Steel Guitar market, then I heard it was a bass amp.
Any info on this one would help. Is there site that can cross reference the serial number to find out what year it is?

I would be greatful for any help!

I used to own one as a kid in the 60's. It was given to me by my uncle who used to play a Fender Precision bass through it in a band. It was a bass amp. It had 2 15" JBLs that could handle about anything. We used to run a Fender Rhoades keyboard and an organ through it. As I recall the thing weighed a ton. I would guess about 1963 to 65?
