A rare Epi design reborn with dazzling finishes and pro features.

Original Wilshire guitars are commanding high prices in today's collectors markets. Epiphone worked hard to bring it back in an affordable guitar that doesn't sacrifice quality, and now this limited edition electric guitar has been further updated with even more pro-features.

The Epiphone Wilshire Pro electric guitar has a double-cutaway mahogany body and set mahogany neck, which joins the body at the 22nd fret, giving you the ultimate in upper-fret access. The Wilshire Pro is lightweight and comfortable, with excellent resonance and natural acoustic tone—even unplugged! Featuring Epiphone's LockTone Tune-O-Matic/stopbar combination, the transfer of string vibration is improved even more, giving this it excellent sustain and clarity.

The neck pickup is Epiphone's Alnico Classic. It provides warm and subtle tone with a full, even response that doesn't hold back when you need that classic humbucker crunch. An Alnico Classic Plus is in the bridge, and is over wound for a slightly higher output—without sacrificing its rich, vintage tone. Both feature Alnico II magnets, enamel wire, and are double vacuum waxed. Each volume control on the Epiphone guitar is a push/pull potentiometer that allows you to coil-split each pickup separately for a more twangy single-coil sound, as well as many other tonal combinations.

The Epiphone Wilshire Pro electric guitar features their own "batwing" headstock. A classic design that improves tuning ease and accuracy by offering a straight string-pull design, the headstock is adorned like the original with the vintage Epiphone logo in gold. Other features include a 1960's SlimTaper neck profile with Rosewood fingerboard, premium 14:1 die-cast tuners, and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.

Epiphone Wilshire-Great bang for the buck!

By Steve Johnson

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Wilshire Pro Electric Guitar:

Purchased the Epiphone Wilshire in Arctic White and have been simply blown away by the quality and playability of this guitar. I was a little hesitant at first to purchase this guitar because I have owned a couple of Gibson SG's in the past, and found them to be very "Neck Heavy". This is not the case with the Wilshire. It's an extremely well-balanced guitar. Although the body is a solid piece of mahogany, it's not overly heavy. Even though some might find the neck profile a little thick, it reminds me of the earlier Gibson neck profile. It has ample spacing between the stings for single notes, so you don't feel like your fingers are being crowded, but chording still feels very comfortable to me.

Regarding the sound, the Gibson Design pickups are full sounding without being muddy. Whether playing clean or distorted, you get clear, crisp sound every time. This is definitely a player's guitar and it's no wonder the Wilshire has the nickname "The Poor Man's Les Paul". I play a mix of blues and rock, with some country thrown in, and this guitar handles them all very nicely.
