Click on small photos to view large photo.

Offering for your consideration this ORIGINAL 7" x 10" Gibson catalog Y shown. Catalog originally had 51 numbered pages a number of which have been cut. Cover has very old scotch tape which is failing. Starts with L-5 page which has had the bottom 1/3 removed. Page after is the same. First full page is numbered 9 with L-4 and L-75. Page 11 has been cut so L-30 is shown but the "Super Jumbo" (later called J-200) has been cut up. Page 13 is uncut full size showing the Advanced Jumbo and Jumbo "35" and L-C Century and L-00 models. Pages 15 and 16 are torn out and gone. Pages 17, 18, 19 and 20 are uncut and complete showing the F-5 (fern) F-7, F-4, A-50, A-1, A-00, and H-O mandola. Just a small part of page 20 is missing. All the banjo pages have been cut almost in half though there are still some cool illustrations that are intact. From page 39 on pages are uncut...accessories, picks, parts, etc.
An interesting old catalog which has , unfortunately, been poorly treated yet still has some cool pages and illustrations. Photos show it as it is... good for reference or, perhaps, to supply pages for another catalog Z that may be missing some... .
