Hi I was wondering if anyone knew anything about these speakers by Gibson? I recently purchased them and heard they are from either 1966or 67 but would like to find out more information, if anyone had any or point me in the right direction. Thank Dan

I believe that they were called HC-12 cabinets. They were a larger cabinet for the GSS-100 amp. I have only seen one before. Here is a shot of my amp with the more common, smaller 2-10 speakers. Over 40 years ago, I had an empty set of these smaller cabinets that had one 12” speaker mounted at a 45 degree angle with a smaller horn or speaker also. They must have had several less common versions. These, along with the GSS-50 combo amp were Gibson’s 2nd attempt at marketing a solid state amp in the middle to late sixties. They had one combo amp in the Crestliner Series.
