Overview

Designed for jazz session guitarist Howard Roberts (who recorded the themes for the Munsters, the Twilight Zone and plenty of other TV classics), this signature model was originally built as an Epiphone in the '60s. In the '70s, Gibson made two versions of this guitar, the Custom and the Artist. The two were essentially the same with a distinct oval soundhole, but the Custom featured a Rosewood instead of Ebony fingerboard and chrome hardware. 

Body Style: Single cutaway hollowbody

Years of Production: 
1973-1981

Design Elements: 
One pickup (non-original shown in picture), three control knobs, trapeze tailpiece, block inlays, 25 1/2-inch scale length, oval sound-hole
