The GA-5’s rearmounted control panel is sparse but stylish

The Gibson Skylark is an underrated small amp from the late 50s and early 60s that many vintage collectors are focusing on as a viable alternative to pricier Fender equivalents. Read on to discover that great things really do come in small packages…

Almost all guitarists love vintage Fender tweed amps – and as a result, they’re not exactly cheap. Late-50s Bassmans and Twins reside in the ‘forget about it’ bracket for most ordinary players, but if a re-tweed isn’t a deal breaker for you, some well-used models will cost you about the same as a boutique amp from a top builder, or sometimes even less. Granted, a couple of grand is still a considerable outlay, so some vintage amp fans are turning their attention to other brands.
