Epiphone Professional Outfit
The Professional outfit was sold as a guitar and amplifier package. They are useless on their own! All controls for operating the amp are built into the guitar - as well as volume and tone, there is tremolo and reverb, tonal changes are "actuated by five 'tonexpressor' switches". The amplifier itself is 15w or 35w, and can not be used independently.

re: the Professional. It isn't true that the guitar was "useless" without the special Professional amp. Years ago I had a Pro on trial for a week or so, as the previous owner's widow wanted to sell it. The guitar had two output jacks, one a military-looking connector for the special amp, and one a standard 1/4" jack. Look closely at the picture and you'll see the standard jack on the top. Using the standard jack you could play the Pro through a standard amp. Not that it was a great instrument or anything - I ended up not buying the thing. Just setting the record straight.
