    Hi guys, I haven't posted here in a really long time but in my search for some new amplification I came across this and I haven't been able to find any information on it. Just wondering if anybody here knows anything about it? The details that came on the advertisement were:
    Made by Gibson
    All valve amp

    EDIT: Please note my signature was written when I was 14/15 and is in retrospect, regretable. *rolls eyes*
  2. Sorry to be a pain but I really can't find any information, I'm very sorry.

    Gibson bought Standel and manufactured amps under the SG name in the old Standel factory for a couple of years before throwing in the towel.
    They generally are heavy and made of particle board but usually fairly durable, I have a 2x12 PA cabinet that is still going.
    An SG Valve amp is a redesigned Standel. The circutry is very standard, any amp tech worth his salt should be able to fix it unless the insides are burned up beyond recognition. A vacuum tube signal path of that vintage is fairly straight forward.

    I read up on SG a couple of months ago and I'll try to remember the site...there was not much...If you get stuck email me off list and we can work on it.

    Actually I like your signature, and I like my girlfriend's Big Breasts ...but I prefer a 4 string bass.... :D
