1966 Goya Electric Guitars catalogue
1966 Goya Electric Guitars catalogue, Goya was well-known for it's acoustic guitars, produced by Levin in Sweden; but in the mid 1960s they added a number of Italian-built electric guitars and basses. Semi-acoustic models such as the 105, 107 and 109 Rangemaster guitars and Panther II bass were made by Polverini, whilst solid body models 116 and 118 were made by Galanti. These were well-built good quality instruments, but perhaps too expensive to sell in large numbers.
1965 Vox Ace electric guitar
1965 Vox Ace electric guitar The Vox Ace was one of the early UK-designed Vox guitars produced by JMI in Dartford, Kent. It had been in production since at least 1962, but was redesigned for late 1963 with a more current look and a higher quality feel. The pickups were upgraded, as was the body; it was now thicker and made of solid wood. Despite this the guitar was now actually lighter in weight, due to a shorter overall length. Have a closer look at a sunburst-finished Vox Ace from 1965.

This Epiphone catalogue represents the early period of Gibson-manufactured guitars, after Gibson bought out Epiphone. It contains all electric guitars, basses, amplifiers, acoustic guitars, acoustic (upright) basses, a mandolin and a banjo. These were all built at the Kalamazoo, Michigan plant, side by side with the guitars bearing the Gibson name. In many cases there is an equivalent Gibson model, sharing hardware of other features, and usually retailing at a very similar price.This catalogue is undated, although was most likely printed early 1961 (or perhaps very late 1960) for distribution throughout 1961.
