Vintage Guitar Magazine Looks At The Epiphone Professional

Be sure to check out the July 2015 issue of Vintage Guitar Magazine. On page 38, George Gruhn and Sarah Rose Jones contribute a great article on the Epiphone Professional guitar and amp. The combo, attached by a multi-pin connector/cable, was produced from 1962 through 1966 and featured amplifier effects (Tonexpressor, Reverb, Tremolo) that were controllable by several switches and knobs mounted on the semi-hollow guitar's pickguard. Less than 400 of these combos were ever produced and today the Epiphone Professional Combo serves as a fine example of the innovative spirit at the root of Epiphone's history.
