1981 Gibson guitar and bass catalogue (Rosetti, UK)

Front cover

Late 1981 (or perhaps early 1982) Gibson guitar catalogue produced by Rosetti for the United Kingdom market. Despite the cover's subtitle, over 20 pages it only contains three banjos and one mandolin. This cover page is the only one with any colour; as well as a list of contents, it shows a photograph from the British Music Fair, August 1981. Gibson market development manager (and reknowned jazz guitarist) Bruce Bolen plays the new ES-335 Dot alongside Dave Roberts on the equally new Victory MV-II. Note also the blue Victory MV-X (with WHITE scratchplate!) and Standard bass, in the foreground and background respectively. The fair was held across several sites, but the Rosetti display was at the Russell hotel, in central London.
