INTRODUCING | 2020 & '21 EPIPHONE NEW RELEASES
Epiphone is on a roll! The brand rolls into 2020 & '21 season with a slew of new releases, including acoustic and ES runs for the Inspired By Gibson collection, a few CME Exclusives to add to our ever-growing line, reissues of three historic solid bodies, and even more freshly made models to love!
We’ve always got room on the wall for more Paul, and we’re happy to announce two brand new additions from Epiphone. These CME Exclusive Epiphone Inspired By Gibson Series Les Paul Standards come complete with period-correct specs and components, like wider Kalamazoo-style headstocks, and AA-grade flame maple tops that make our CME Exclusive ‘60s Maple Burst Fade and ‘50s Transparent Cherry colorways really pop! A freshly-cut Phil plugs in, taking us through a wormhole in time to where these models began.
Epiphone resurrects the Wilshire, Coronet, and Crestwood Custom, its first solid-body guitar, for a blast-from-the-past trio that harkens back to the great days of garage gone by.
New to the Epiphone catalog, the Emperor Swingster is born to rule. Dual Epiphone SwingBucker pickups with push-pull series/parallel switching light up the 5-ply layered maple hollow body, accentuated by a premium hardware set that includes a licensed Bigsby vibrato tailpiece with wire handle. Available in Forest Green Metallic, Delta Blue Metallic, and Black Aged Gloss.
Epiphone adds three ES models to the mix, boosting its selection of Inspired By Gibson semi-hollow bodies with a figured ES-335, non-figured ES-335, and an ES-339.
Joining the Inspired By Gibson collection, Epiphone’s new J-200, Hummingbird, and J-45 acoustics carry on the rich tradition of their namesakes with all-solid-wood construction at a price point that’s anything but traditional.
Available only at the Chicago Music Exchange, these CME Exclusive Epiphone Les Pauls will fit right in on the wall, and the ever-popular Casino hollow body is a sure bet, especially in our CME Exclusive Worn Sunrise Orange finish.
Last but not least, a true Epiphone original, the Riviera, makes a big come back, capping off a rich roster of highly anticipated releases perfect “for every stage.”
Jefferson Airplane flies again! The popular Epiphone Jack Casady signature semi-hollow bass is back, this time in a beautiful Sparkling Burgundy and Faded Pelham Blue finishes.
The Embassy Bass, released in 1963, establishes itself once again as a player’s favorite. This beautifully balanced, asymmetrical mahogany solid-body features a 34”-scale solid mahogany neck, 2 X 2 headstock design, and dual ProBucker 760 humbucking pickups with a blend knob for tonal versatility. Available in Graphite Black, Smoked Almond Metallic, Sparkling Burgundy, and Wanderlust Green Metallic.
Nine countries, 24 cities, and thousands and thousands of miles, but the Boutique Guitar Showcase finds its way back to the Chicago Music Exchange again! Catch the Chicago leg of its worldwide tour on Saturday, September 10th, when the mobile guitar convention stops by our beautiful Lincoln Avenue showroom to share and sell masterworks from some of the world’s finest boutique builders.View Details
