The new models, which are revamped additions to Epiphone’s Pro and Lite series, come in an abundance of shapes and sizes, including Casinos, SGs, Les Paul Traditionals and more. There’s also a plethora of exquisite finishes on offer – we particularly love the Sunrise Orange that adorns the Casino, but certainly wouldn’t knock the Translucent Red and Blue finishes atop of the SG G-400 Deluxe Pro’s flame-maple veneer top.
Other notable inclusions in the new drop include Alnico Classic Pro Humbuckers and push/pull coil-splitting in the SG-400s, as well as Gibson USA humbuckers in the Les Paul Traditional Pro-III models, which are also fitted with an onboard boost function for a +15dB gain surge. For acoustic purists, Epiphone have also relaunched the EJ-160E, as famously played by John Lennon, which is decked with a spruce top and an Epiphone Stacked P-90 pickup.
It’s a pretty big launch for the company, and hopefully we get to see some of these guitars land down under real soon. Head to the company’s website to suss out the full range on offer and read up on all the specs.
