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. It features the following US-built guitars, basses and amplifiers:

Electric guitars:
Emperor
Sheraton
Broadway
Zephyr
Windsor
Casino
Sorrento
Century
Crestwood Custom
