Howard Roberts’ Guitars

May 20, 2007

Nicolai Foss

Howard Roberts’ name will forever be associated with the model he designed for Epiphone and Gibson, The Epiphone Howard Roberts Custom and Standard, and the Gibson Howard Roberts Artist. The model, sort of an updated L4 with Florentine cutaway, was copied by numerous Japanese companese (most famously by Ibanez) but also by German producer Hoyer. Here is a full list of the guitars Roberts designed and owned. The page is part of Mike Evans’ very well-researched Howard Roberts site.

    Great site!

    I’m looking for a trapeze tailpiece with rosewood insert and b-w plate engraved “HOWARD ROBERTS”for a 1975 Gibson Howard Roberts.
    Also the pick guard (mine disintegrated)!

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
    Thanx!
