Gibson 1962 guitar and amplifier catalogue. Page 20 - index page/introduction to the section featuring Gibson's line of amplifiers.
This page show Gibson endorsee Tony Mottola with his stereo ES-355TD-SV thinline electric, and GA-77 Vanguard amplifier. Interestingly, this guitar is not fitted with the side-to-side vibrola as shown on page 7, but a Bigsby model.
Ever the pioneer, Gibson was first to develop the electric guitar, has been first with innumerable refinements in the projection and amplification of musical sound, now is first with true stereophonic sound for the guitar. These firsts have come from constant study in cooperation with leading artists, teachers and dealers... and from continuous experimentation and research in the Gibson laboratory, one of the most advanced in the industry.
Unlike the previous catalog which also features Mr. Mottola (here) no mention is made of stereo functionality in this guitar, and no stereo amplifier is shown. See also the 1963 Tony Mottola has a New Sound advertisement featuring a similar image but with a newer version of the Vanguard amp in place of this one.
