Epiphone have impressed me with their products of late. It looks as though 2019 follow in the same vein: its latest announcement is the Epiphone DC PRO, an AAA flame maple top, double cut design with some seriously cool ’70s flair.

Epiphone DC PRO

Epiphone’s DC PRO is a modern double cut design with a AAA flame maple ‘veneer’ top. The body and 24.75″ neck are both mahogany and the neck has a Pau Ferro fretboard. It’s glued-in, has a ‘Custom C’ shaped profile and is fitted with 24 medium jumbo frets.

This instrument comes loaded with Epiphone ProBucker humbucking pickups, each with a coil-splitting mode for extra tonal variety. It also uses a treble bleed circuit, to keep your highs intact when you turn down the guitar volume. The twin Volume and Tone controls are wired via a three-way toggle switch located on the top horn.

The hardware wise is finished in nickel throughout, including a set of Grover 18:1 ratio tuners and Epiphone’s LockTone Tune-o-matic style bridge. Epiphone has even thrown in a set of own-branded strap locks.

All the colours

The DC PRO will be available in the following colours: Black Cherry, Faded Cherry Sunburst, Midnight Ebony, Mojave Fade and Wild Ivy.

I like this look. It is reminiscent of my old Washburn ‘Wing Series’ Falcon or perhaps an old ’70s Hamer. Either way, I think it looks like a great ‘balls to the wall’ rock guitar. If the price is right it could be a decent seller. It would have some serious competition from PRS SE range, but if Epiphone pitch this correctly I think they will sell bucket loads.

Awesome looking guitar ! I just stumbled on it today. $599 isn’t a bad price either. Might trade my Dean Evo for one. It would also look great as a 12 string. Agree ?

The Epiphone DC Pro is an awesome looking double cut away electric guitar. I believe the maple cap is solid and not a veneer. My only gripe is the Pau Ferro fretboard. Why not use the traditional rosewood? If this guitar had a “true” rosewood fretboard I would already own one or even two. Pau Ferro is a deal breaker for me. I want rosewood!
