For those who don't know, Howard Roberts was a 1950s and 60s jazz guitarist who played in many other styles as well. As a member of the famed Wrecking Crew, an ensemble of studio session players who were arguably the greatest players of their day, Roberts stood out as the best of the best. In 1962, Howard Roberts endorsed Epiphone and helped design the Epiphone Howard Roberts Signature Model guitar. This 1967 Howard Roberts Model is a real piece of history and would be a great addition to any collection.
