1958 was an important and innovative year for Gibson. Several new models were shipped for the first time, models that have gone on to be classics that define the Gibson brand: the Flying V, Explorer and ES-335TD, aswell as models that didn't quite make it, but are still revered in Gibson folklore, such as the Moderne and Explorer bass. This was, of course, the first catalogue to widely illustrate the use of the Gibson Humbuckers that had been introduced the previous year.

The first half of this catalogue contains high-end and student electric acoustics, solid bodies and bass guitars. The newer models don't appear until the back cover (part 2).

The March 1958 Gibson electric guitars and amplifiers catalogue featured the following guitars. Click on the images for full size versions, or click on the model names below to jump to the relevant page.
