Apparently Gibson made an SG Amp back in the 70s? What's the deal with this thing?

Early 70s more or less. The one I'm most familiar with is in a quasi-road case looking cabinet.Heavy.IIRC it was tube but could be a little unusual by todays standards.Had a built in Maestro phase shifter with the 3 settings.Knobs looked like stove knobs.There could have been other models. Maytbe different speaker complements.Not sure if they were Norlin era or CMI which was earlier.

They ran a pair of 8417 output tubes for 100watts, with a SS front end.
Cool sounding Phaser, I've played and serviced a few over the years.

Wow, this thing sounds pretty... interesting to say the least. Does anyone know if it's channel switchable (clean, overdrive)?

It's clean clean clean. Great sounding amps. Very warm, great with single coils and tons of headroom. Very dynamic.
