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.
