This 1953 Gibson BR-9 amp has been very well cared for.  It is in amazingly clean cosmetic condition.

The amp has also bee responsibly serviced.  The power cable was swapped for a grounded one.  Filter caps have been changed, and other caps were updated in the circuit as needed.  Many original components remain.

The cover is a repro but it is doing a great job of keeping the amp clean.

It works just as it should.  It isn't a barn burner, but it is a highly collectable amp that's in better shape than any other out there..
