This 1968 Gibson guitar pamphlet was fairly concise - at just eight sides and measuring roughly 5" x 9" it only contained a small sample of Gibson's range: four pages of guitars, and two pages of guitar amplifiers. It was vibrantly coloured however, and quite a good synopsis of the companies entry-intermediate level products.
Broadly speaking, there was an example of each kind of guitar; a solid body, a semi acoustic, a twelve string, a bass. And so on. All guitars are proven sellers rather than the specialist instruments produced in smaller numbers. In each case, images are the same as those first used in the 1966 Gibson catalogue. The amplifiers, on the other hand, are all new (or in the case of the Skylark and Falcon re-designed) models, and are only listed in 1968 price lists for the first time.
