1994 to 1998

The HOWARD ROBERTS HR-1 model was made by Samick for Epiphone between 1994 and 1998. It was a contemporary reissue of the 1960s Epiphone Howard Roberts model. The HR-1 had a floating mini-humbucker pickup and a hollow laminated curly maple body with oval soundhole. The peghead has a Howard Roberts signature and a tree-of-life inlay.

The Korean HR-1 replaced the Japanese made "1960s Howard Roberts" model in 1994 - both these reissue models came out after Howard Robert's death in 1992 so he would not have played them himself.
