Built from 1964 to 1970, the Epiphone Howard Roberts Standard takes cues from very early Gibson archtops – specifically, the oval sound hole on an arched Spruce top. Apparently, 290 of these guitars were made, from introduction until Epiphone construction was moved out of Kalamazoo and sent overseas.At his peak, Howard Roberts was at the top of the session world, for a time doing nine hundred sessions a year.There were two versions of the Epiphone Howard Roberts – the Custom and Standard.
