The 1982 Epiphone range consisted of a number of US built solid body instruments, and a wider range of Japanese-produced semi-acoustic electrics, Presentation series flat top acoustics, banjos and mandolins. Japanese production was through Aria, who produced Epiphone guitars at the Matsumoku facilities throughout the 1970s and early 1980s.

This series of eighteen 5" x 7" promotional cards shows these Japanese instruments in a postcard format, with an image of the instrument on one side and description/specifications on the reverse. The cards are dated variously 1980 (most Presentation series acoustics, mandolins and banjos), 1981 (PR715 acoustic) and 1982 (reissue electric acoustic guitars) - but were distributed together, packed in a translucent plastic wallet. These would presumably have different contents, as models were added.
