The Epiphone 'guitars, basses, amplifiers' full line instrument catalogue represents an early (though not the earliest) period of Gibson-manufactured guitars, after Gibson bought out Epiphone.

24 pages, two color print throughout, 11" x 8 1/2".

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. The majority of instruments detailed in these pages became well established throughout the 1960s - the only real exception being the Epiphone Windsor; this being it's only catalogue appearance. Amplifiers making their only catalogue appearance are: the Epiphone Deluxe, Century and Challenger

The catalogue itself is undated, although was most likely printed early 1961 (or perhaps very late 1960) for distribution throughout 1961.
