NAMM06: Epiphone Guitars Of The Month


After the roaring success of last year’s models, Epiphone has designed a brand-new range of limited-edition models for NAMM 2006. Every quarter, Epiphone will launch three new limited edition models. Each will be based on an existing Epiphone design, but with a unique twist that makes these custom guitars a genuine collectors item.
Here’s the list in full:
  • Firebird Studio
    The Epiphone Firebird Studio in Vintage Sunburst features a reverse body styling plus a set neck and Alnico Classic humbucker. The twist comes in the form of Steinberger’s 40:1 direct-drive tuners in unbeatable tuning precision.
