1960-61 Gibson GA-5 Skylark Restoration


Recommended Posts

Restored? What was done to it? I just sold one a few months ago,,great little amp


We fixed the cabinet a little, straightened the chassis, changed the electrolytic caps, changed the coupling caps, installed a new fuse holder and power switch, rewired the speaker with a jack and plug so you can disconnect the speaker without having to unsolder the wires. Installed new tubes, new 3-prong power cord, new volume pot. We revoiced it a little so it's not so muddy sounding by changing the first coupling cap from a 0.022 to a 0.015. That's about it!
