Dates of manufacture: 

1975 to 1979

The Epiphone Olympic Custom was made for the Japanese domestic market only. It had the Les Paul double cutaway body shape of the  early Epiphone Olympic Double and the Epiphone Olympic Special. The Japanese Olympic Custom had a radical German Carve around the edge of the body, no pickguard and two humbucking pickups. The Olympic Custom came with either a wraparound bridge or a tune-o-matic plus vibrato tailpiece. The pickup selector was strangely positioned directly behind the bridge such that the strings went right over the top of it on models with a vibrato tailpiece! Made from 1975 until 1979.
