The highlight is the Falcon 20, an amplifier that marries vintage charm with modern innovation. It features a cream Tolex exterior, adjustable attenuation controls (Full, Half, and Low), and a mysterious Frequency dial, possibly for tremolo effects.


The Falcon 20 pays homage to the original Gibson Falcon (GA-19RVT), a 14-watt combo amp from 1961. Known for its reverb and tremolo features, the original Falcon was a testament to Gibson’s innovative spirit. It boasted a 12″ Jensen speaker, 6V6 power tubes, a trio of 6EU7 preamp tubes, and a 7199 tube for its reverb circuit.

Gibson Amps are back

Gibson’s storied history in amp production dates back to 1935, with this model halting production in 1967. The GA and BR series became cult classics. The acquisition of Mesa/Boogie in 2021 reignited interest in American-made Gibson amps.
