Epiphone Anounces New Spring 2015 Guitars

Published: Thu January 22, 2015  News Feed
Epiphone revealed today some great new instruments for Spring 2015. Everything is absolutely eye-catching, and packed with great specs. These guitars offer a great mix of the traditional with the bold...

New Epiphone models for 2015
The selection Epiphone chose to showcase at NAMM 2015 is quite interesting - apart from a couple of guitars, nothing looks too traditional! Sure, Epiphone and Casinos go a long way, but the new Limited-Edition Gary Clark Jr. "Blak & Blu" Casino has a finsih that is sure to attract the modern players, not just those interested  in the more traditional.

The new Epiphone Blueshawke looks even more striking - bringing back the early 90s design with great features and finishes: the Blueshawk Deluxe features the upper bout curve and cutaway of a Les Paul but with the semi-hollowbody design and small f-holes of an archtop. The result is one of the most versatile and distinctive guitars anywhere. And now the Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe features new P-90 PRO™ Single Coil pickups plus a 6-position Rotary VariTone™.

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Tommy Thayer 2015 Signature Les Paul Outfit is a great new addition to the Les Paul family, this time paying homage to the Kiss axeman:

Whether you're a fan of Kiss or not, this is certainly a striking Les Paul...  it features a solid Mahogany body and a plain Maple Veneer Top finished in beautiful Metallic White with a chrome colored pickguard, all chosen by Tommy. The body also has 7-ply (pure white and black) binding on the top and single-ply pure white binding on the fingerboard.

The 2015 Signature Model comes with Seymour Duncan® JB™ humbuckers especially chosen by Tommy along with a custom hard case, an "Inspired by" Custom Studded Leather Strap just like Tommy's original, a Hand Signed Certificate of Authenticity, a binder with certificate and official photograph, and Epiphone's customary accessories including a user’s manual, Epiphone poster, Epiphone bumper sticker, and more.

"My new 2015 signature model is the pinnacle of looks, style and flash," says Tommy. "I'm proud to put my name on a serious guitar that can be enjoyed at home or rock the biggest stages in the world."

On a more traditional camp, the Epiphone continues its historic Masterbilt series with the new  Epiphone Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME Acoustic/Electric. As with all Masterbilts, the new Masterbilt 2015 AJ-45ME Acoustic/Electric is an ALL SOLID WOOD instrument featuring a solid Sitka Spruce top finished in a Vintage Sunburst Satin finish. The top is supported by hand-scalloped Sitka Spruce braces and is set off by Mahogany kerfing along with a Rosewood bridge and a bone saddle. No doubt, this will be one of the finest - if not THE finest - acoustic guitar Epiphone will be releasing in 2015:

The AJ-45ME also features Shadow's state-of-the-art Sonic™ preamp system with the revolutionary under-saddle NanoFlex™ low-impedance pickup. Discretely mounted inside the sound hole, the Sonic preamp features an easy-access volume control with Treble and Bass EQ controls. And the AJ-45ME gets in tune and stays in tune thanks to world famous Grover™ Sta-Tite™ machine heads with a pro-level 18:1 tuning ratio.

Another new guitar that is very traditional in its looks and features is the new Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody guitar with an easy to play Round Neck. The Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 resonator guitar features the renowned style and sound of an American original that’s been dazzling and inspiring musicians since the late 1920s.

Featuring a Bell Brass body with nickel plating, a Mahogany neck with a natural satin finish with an easy-to-fret 1960s SlimTaper™ profile that is joined to the body at the 14th fret with Neck-Stick Construction. The Dobro® Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody also has Grover® mini-Rotomatic™ machine heads with an 18:1 ratio and comes ready to play with D'Addario EJ42 medium gauge strings.

Epiphone promises more models - and more surprises - later in the year. If this small but fantastic selection is anything to go by, we can hardly wait!
