Epiphone Limited Peter Frampton "1964" Texan w/LR Baggs EAS-VTC and Epiphone Hardshell Case Bundle

Brand New

Description & Specs

From Epiphone:

Epiphone presents the Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan, designed with guitar legend Peter Frampton. Featuring a Solid Spruce top with a rare Faded Vintageburst finish, a L. R. Baggs EAS-VTC pickup system, and the same Schaller M6 machine heads Frampton uses on his vintage Texan. Limited to just 500 guitars. 

Show Me the Way To An Epiphone:  Frampton purchased his original Texan in 1968 while recording with Humble Pie.  “I loved Steve Marriott’s guitar which was an Epiphone Frontier,” recalled Frampton. “I asked our guitar tech if he could find me one like it and he came back with the Texan. And I played it and loved it. Mine was made only 3 months apart from Paul McCartney’s in 1964. He wrote “Yesterday” on his and I wrote “Baby I Love Your Way” on mine!” Frampton’s original 1964 Texan has been his main songwriting guitar ever since and has been a constant companion on the road until it was retired in favor of his new Ltd. Ed. “1964” Texan. “I played the prototype on a British TV show and it sounded incredible. I’m so thrilled and honored.”

Solid Spruce Top with Faded Vintageburst Finish:  Like Frampton’s vintage 1964 Texan, the new Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan has a Solid Mahogany body and a Solid Spruce Top with a Faded Vintageburst finish and 3-ply Ivory and Black binding. The Mahogany neck has a 1960s SlimTaper C-Profile with a 25.5” scale length, 20 medium jumbo frets, a 12” radius, and a Pau Ferro fingerboard with Pearloid "Parallelograms” inlays. The traditional Sloped Dovewing headstock comes with a replica of Frampton’s signature in silver plus Frampton’s original serial number-- “205898"--on the back along with a “2018 Edition” logo. The 2-way adjustable truss rod has an Epiphone “bullet” shaped cover with a 60s era Epiphone “E” logo in white. The Pau Ferro reverse belly bridge has a bone saddle and white bridge pins with "Abalone" Dots. The tortious shell-style pickguard also has a 60’s era silver “E” emblem. 

L. R. Baggs EAS-VTC System:  Peter Frampton has long been a fan of L. R. Baggs pickup systems. For his Epiphone Ltd. Ed. “1964” Texan, Frampton chose the cutting edge L. R. Baggs EAS-VTC system which includes both a soundhole pickup and a Flexible Film Sensor pickup in the saddle. The EAS-VTS system allows the Texan’s incredible dynamic range and true acoustic sound to shine through when plugged in. Unlike typical undersaddle acoustic guitar pickups that are dependent on string compression for their tone, the EAS-VTC system was engineered to mirror the soundboard’s actual movement as you play. The L. R. Baggs system includes soundhole mounted controls for Master Volume and Tone along with a built-in LF filter. The L. R. Baggs EAS-VTC system is powered by a standard 9-volt battery.

Schaller M6 Machine Heads:  The new Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan includes the same Schaller M6 machine heads that Frampton uses on his customized vintage ’64 Texan along with nickel strap buttons at the neck heel and body and a 60s era blue soundhole label with the serial number and original Texan model number: FT-79. An un-signed Certificate of Authenticity is included and an optional hard case is also available. This bundle includes a Hardshell Epiphone Dreadnought Case.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
