The Epiphone 150th Anniversary is being celebrated with four limited-edition models, the Crestwood Custom, Wilshire, Sheraton and Zephyr DeLuxe Regent.
Epiphone 150th Anniversary
Epiphone was founded almost 30 years before Gibson and is this year celebrating 150 years of making instruments and launching the limited edition Crestwood Custom, Wilshire, Sheraton and Zephyr DeLuxe Regent models.
This Crestwood Custom has a solid mahogany body and a ’60s SlimTaper D-profile neck with an Indian laurel fretboard. The orange-coloured body is California Coral and will certainly turn heads.
This model is equipped with USA-made Gibson mini-humbuckers and CTS pots plus a Switchcraft switch.
MSRP – EUR 1199 *
Next up is the 150th Anniversary Wilshire model and this one has a more subdued Pacific Blue finish. The mahogany neck has a 1960s SlimTaper D-Shape.
Hardware includes a LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and a stop bar tailpiece. Again, this model has USA-made Gibson mini-humbuckers and CTS pots plus a Switchcraft switch.
MSRP – EUR 999 *
The Sheraton is a semi-hollow design and is based on a layered-maple construction, with a solid maple centre block and a one-piece mahogany neck.
It has a bound Indian Laurel fretboard with mother-of-pearl block inlays.
This model comes in Cherry with a Tremotone vibrato, a set of Grover Rotomatics and a set of Gibson mini-humbuckers, all finished in gold.
It also uses Orange Drop capacitors, plus CTS pots and a Switchcraft switch.
MSRP – EUR 1599 *
Zephyr DeLuxe Regent
Finally, there is the Zephyr DeLuxe Regent and this hollow-body jazz model is a pretty sweet-looking guitar.
It features a multi-layered maple body with a five-piece mahogany 25.5″ scale length neck and an ebony fretboard.
This 150th Anniversary model has a set of Epiphone’s NY humbuckers, plus CTS pots and Switchcraft toggle-switch and jack. This is a pretty rare model and hasn’t been seen for some time, so could be well worth checking out.
MSRP – EUR 1599 *
