I wonder if the 1957 catalog just extended through 1959?
Is there any way to tell by any of the products? What year did the Vee come out? It also says the ES-335T is the 'newest star in a long list of Gibson favorites'.
They spelled favourite wrong. (that's for you Thump!)
Heck if I know, it was just a thought.
V = 1958
Even if it is a '58 catalog, I wonder why they don't have burst finishes?
Limited browsing appears to indicate that the ES-335 was also introduced in 1958
Doubleneck back then!?....HOLY COOL!
That would be great.
Look at those prices. Thank you for sharing, NGG!
But now the question is if it were introduced in '58, when did it hit the catalog? If it were after the '58 catalog then this is a '59 catalog.
I dunno.....but wouldn't a catalog typically be released before the start of the year, like they do for cars?
This thread is starting to make me giggle. I am betting that they are right that it is a '59 catalog, but it still is a mystery about the burst finishes since they should have had them since the year before by this time.
Could it be that they had to be custom ordered?
Whatever it is, it's damn cool, and thanks!
That will have to be tomorrow, I gotta crash, g'night all
Even if it's not accurate on the year that is still very cool.
I'm thinking now it has to be the 1959 catalog as marked by the printer. If the Vee and ES-335 were introduced in 1958, it makes sense that they would be introduced in the 1959 catalog.
But I agree with you (is this a first?) that this is very cool. I really dig social history and this is a fantastic artifact.
Very cool....Only one I've got is the original 1970 catalogue and price list... came with my Deluxe....
Time to get the scanner warmed up??
this thread is both confusing and awesome. thanks for posting it.
