Yee har! I used to have a Gunn 50. My first amp actually. I sounded hideous but it probably needed a good service. Yeah, so maybe a 100w attempt, as you say. Cool as man. Thanks for sharing.

Looks like a custom ordered amp. (BTW the EL34 on the bottom right hand side - with the white powdery stuff inside the bottle - is haddit)

Super cool find. The size is pretty impractical, but imagine if you got it fixed up - Marshall preamp, really great FX loop, stereo 50 watt output section with mojo vintage trannys. That would be epic.

Weapons grade level of awesome. Please restore, then use to euthanise boy bands.
In my defence, I was left unsupervised...

Good stereo setup maybe? Or wet/dry.

I remember seeing a "president" made by Jansen in the sixtys. it had two 50watt amps with a mono input. you had to use two cabs with it or take out two tubes. it was smaller than the Gunn.
very rare amp.
nice to know
