Gibson EH-100 Model Tube Amplifier (1938), made in Kalamazoo, Michigan, serial # 6654, two-tone fabric finish.
 
Height is 12 1/16 in. (30.6 cm.), 14 in. (35.6 cm.) width, and 6 1/2 in. (16.5 cm.) deep.

Overall a decently clean example of the cool-looking and fine-sounding 1938-9 EH-100 amplifier, Gibson's smaller sister to their classic EH-150. This amp is fully maintenanced with a recent cap job, new pots, grounded correct style tubes, and a recone for the original field coil speaker.

The cabinet covering and handle show typical wear but nothing extreme. The only alteration from period spec we can see is the center input of three has been converted to take an RCA-style mini plug. The often-lost clip-on back panel is still intact. While not as powerful as the same year's EH-150, this amp still has decent volume and some serious crunch when pushed; it is actually quite similar to the earlier 1936 model EH-150. Excellent Condition.
