ZEPHYR DELUXE REGENT
In celebration of Epiphone’s 150th anniversary, Epiphone is proud to release the new limited edition 150th Anniversary Zephyr DeLuxe Regent. It features a deep cutaway for improved upper-fret access, a multi-layer pressed maple arched top, and a 25.5” scale 5-piece maple and mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard. The electronics are equally impressive, with a pair of Epiphone NY Mini Humbucker™ pickups. Each has individual volume and tone controls with CTS® potentiometers. A 150th Anniversary decal adorns the back of the headstock.

SHERATON
This elegant instrument was created in celebration of Epiphone’s 150th anniversary. It features a semi-hollowbody crafted from layered maple with a maple centerblock for feedback resistance. The 22-fret one-piece mahogany neck has a bound Indian laurel fretboard with block mother of pearl and abalone inlays. The Epiphone 150th Anniversary Sheraton comes with premium electronics, including made-in-the-USA Gibson Mini Humbucker™ pickups wired to CTS® potentiometers, Orange Drop® capacitors, and a Switchcraft® three-way pickup selector switch and 1/4” output jack. The gloss Cherry finish is complimented by gold hardware, including Grover® Rotomatic® tuners, a LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic™ bridge, and a Tremotone vibrato tailpiece.

CRESTWOOD CUSTOM
The Crestwood first appeared in 1958 and it was renamed Crestwood Custom in 1959; it was Epiphone’s first two-pickup solid body electric guitar design. It features an asymmetrical solid mahogany double-cutaway body that gives players unhindered upper fret access, a mahogany neck with a comfortable 60s SlimTaper™ D profile, and an Indian laurel fretboard with oval inlays. The headstock is the popular “Batwing” style, with Wilkinson® six on a plate inline tuners with metal buttons. The electronics feature a pair of made-in-the USA Gibson™ Mini Humbuckers™ that are wired to CTS™ potentiometers and a Switchcraft 3-way toggle switch and 1/4″ output jack. An Epiphone Tremotone vibrato tailpiece gives you extra expressive capabilities.

WILSHIRE
This special anniversary version features an asymmetrical-style Wilshire double-cutaway mahogany body for outstanding upper fret access, a mahogany neck with a comfortable 60s SlimTaper™ D profile, and an Indian laurel fretboard with dot inlays. The headstock is the popular “Batwing” style, with Wilkinson® six on a plate inline tuners with metal buttons. The electronics feature a pair of made-in-the-USA Gibson™ Mini Humbuckers™ that are wired to CTS™ potentiometers and a Switchcraft 3-way toggle switch and output jack.
