1972 Gibson showcase brochures
1972 Gibson showcase brochuresIn 1972 Gibson produced a series of 'Guitar of the Month' brochures, each dedicated to one of their high end models, the Les Paul Recording guitar, L5-CES, ES-175D, Super 400-CES, ES-355TD-SV and Byrdland. Each brochure was a single sheet folded into four panels, with details of the instruments themselves, their features, musical purpose, and a little history behind the development of each guitar. Only the Les Paul Recording was a new model; the others were all well established in the Gibson line. Follow the link to see scans and further information on these leaflets and other Gibson guitar catalogues from the CMI and Norlin periods.
1966 Kalamazoo KB-1 bass
Kalamazoo KB-1 bass Gibson assembled these 30 1/2" scale Kalamazoo KB-1 basses in their electronics plant in Kalamazoo, MI - separate from the main Gibson plant. They used the same components and hardware as on the Gibson EB bass series; but with a pre-painted masonite body and a bolt-on maple neck; a very different construction to Gibson's usual output. Initially the KB bass had a Mustang-shaped body (see the 1966 Kalamazoo KB-1, left), which was soon redesigned with the classic SG shape (see the 1967 Kalamazoo KB-1, right). Have a listen to sound clips of this bass here.

1970 electric solid bodies catalogue
1972 electric solid bodies catalogue Although dated as 1972, this catalogue was actually produced in very late 1971. It kept the size and design of its predecesor, the 1970 electric solid bodies catalogue, but with redesigned, renamed instruments, and some new ones altogether. Both covers feature the SG Standard (though in the '72 its renamed the SG Deluxe) and feature the five basic models of the range:

Gibson SG Custom
Gibson SG Deluxe
Gibson SG Pro
Gibson SG 250
Gibson SG 100

I have a 72/73 Gibson SG w/bigsby (removed) with only a Les paul style pick guard ...no pick guard on controls and 2 "Gibson" humbuckers. Serial # is 727374. I have never seen any sales info on such and can you accurately give D.O.B. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
