Gibson have always been primarily a fine guitar company (see Gibson guitars and Gibson Bass), and many of their other products have been overlooked. But Gibson have produced amplifiers for a very long time, with some models (particularly the older valve amplifiers) have a particularly good reputation, particularly in the studio. Amps like the GA19RVT, or Gibson Falcon sold quite well, and are still relatively easy to find..

In the mid 1960s a number of solid-state amps became available, starting with the GSS100 (Gibson Solid State), but despite significant marketing these were seen as a poor replacement to the older valve models. In the late 1970s (Norlin period), and with Moogs involvement, a new breed of solid state amplifiers were tried; the Lab series, but despite endorsements from the likes of BB King and significant advertising, again these sold poorly.
