Epiphone acoustic archtops from the 1960s

I notice that Gibson kept using the old Epiphone body shapes for the Deluxe, Triumph and Zenith until they were discontinued in the late 1960s. Do these guitars have a similar sound to the earlier Epiphones? There seem to be some good bargains out there simply because they're younger than the "classic" archtop era.

I'm sure they sound good, but I'm really wondering if Gibson changed the bracing, etc. or stuck to the original designs.
