EPIPHONE produced the OLYMPIC DOUBLE between 1960 and 1970 - it was the two pickup version of the Olympic Single. It started out with a Les Paul style double cutaway body, tortoise shell pickguard and melody maker style headstock from 1960 until 1962. The body style was changed in 1963 to an offset double cutaway Coronet style design with a larger white pickguard. The original LP style double cutaway body was retained as the Olympic Special model from 1962 onwards.

In 1964, 6-on-a-side headstock was introduced and a Maestro vibrato became optional. This model was also available in a single pickup configuration as the Epiphone Olympic Single.
