The 1980 Gibson catalogue was quite different from those that preceded it. It was more of a book than a catalogue: smaller (6" by 9") with a thicker card cover, contents page, prologue, and printed in full colour. It was 68 pages long, including covers, with a separate model on each page. It was split into sections, which have been spread other three pages on this site: Part 1 - Professional and Les Paul segments; Part 2 - Solidbody, RD, thinline and bass segments; Part 3 - Acoustic, Firebrand and Sonex segments.

The catalogue contains a number of new models: the solid body 335S series, the Sonex-180 series and the Howard Roberts Fusion. It featured the following guitars. Click on the images for full size versions, or click on the model names below for more about each instrument
