New Epiphone SG With P90s

Epiphone release the Limited Edition 50th Anniversary '1961' SG Special Outfit   06-Sep-11

Epiphone tells us that the Limited Edition 50th Anniversary '1961' SG Special Outfit faithfully turns back the clock and gives you an affordable iconic instrument that sounds and plays like you've stepped back in time.
Like the original, this latest model features a Mahogany body and Mahogany neck with a SlimTaper 1960's D-Profile. It has a handset 24.75" neck with a 12" radius, a Rosewood fingerboard, a 1.68" nut width for tuning stability during bends, Wilkinson Vintage 14:1 Ivory Button machine heads, and a classic 60's era Epiphone logo on the headstock.
Epiphone say that the Alnico P-90R Soapbar neck pickup and the Alnico P-90T Soapbar bridge pickup are perfect for players who want elements of both single and double coil sounds in one pickup.
The guitar is available in classic Alpine White, Cherry, Ebony, and TV Yellow and comes in a padded 1961 SG Model 50th Anniversary gig bag.

The epiphones guitar luthiers in china are way better than the gibson luthiers. epiphones are top professional quality at its very best. The 2010 epiphone g400 standard 62 Sg is conciderd by profesional guitarist to be the best standard Sg out there.

Gibson guitars are not better than Epiphone Guitars at all. They havent been since 2008. Epiphones luthiers/Guitar makers blows Gibson right off the planet. I also think the 010 Epi G-400 standard 62 sg is the best sg out there. Epi 1961's are too.

Epiphone limited edition 50th anniversary 1961 sg reissue is simply a work of beautiful Art!. I chose the Epiphone model over the Gibson 1961 sg reissue because its better crafted and its 100% true to the original. The tones are so classic with the P-90's
