The 1966 Gibson catalogue was the most lavish produced to date, and for many years afterwards. It had been the first to be in full colour, and contained Gibson's entire product range, from high-end jazz guitars, solid bodies (including the newly designed Firebird range) and Gibson's wide range of acoustic instruments. But this was a very sucessful time for Gibson. 1965 had been their very best year, with massive sales and a huge expansion of their Kalamazoo facilities. There was a huge rise in the popularity of guitar playing, and cheaper imported brands were not yet been able to compete on grounds of quality.

The entire ranges of electric guitars, basses, acoustics, banjos, mandolins and amplifiers are shown. Click on the images for full size versions, or click on the model names below for more about each instrument

Hi, I have a 1965 EB3, purchased new from Muscara Music in Belleville NJ I still own & use it reularily and was wondering what was the Original type and gauge of the srings were?.. I was also surprised recently to learn that this model was not considered "Short Scale" and also the 65 may have been the only one with the the "TaliPiece" String muffler that can be locked in place. Last, any idea where I can buy "inserts" for the Vol & Tone control, or the complete 4 piece set if I have to? Thanks for th information
