“Gibson GA-20T Ranger with built in Tremolo – Clear, clean tones with solid, undistorted response plus a wonderful built in tremolo – that’s GA-20T, a favorite of professionals and students. Can easily handle three instruments and microphone….” — 1960 Gibson catalog – side note: whoever wrote this clearly never played a GA-20T. It’s mostly thick, fat, crunchy tone with little clean headroom.
