That's interesting, Phil. I wish I knew for sure which reverb tank Gibson used in that amp. Googling gave me mixed answers. Some folks said it was a 9BC2C1B (190 ohm), but one guy posted a big list that said 4FB2A1C (1475 ohms).
I just finished refurbishing an ancient Danelectro DM-25 for a guy. It drives the reverb tank capacitively coupled from a pair of medium-mu triodes (6FQ7 or 6CG7) in a self-split push-pull arrangement. It sounds pretty good, too. The reverb tank is like nothing I've ever seen before. It's skinny and sits on a couple of leaf springs on top of the chassis. I read somewhere that its output transducer is piezoelectric. Luckily, the original tank still worked. I don't think I could have found a replacement anywhere.
