Listening To The Epiphone Wilshire

4 December 2009 One Comment

wilshire01We know this isn’t exactly breaking news but we’ve just found these sound samples of the Epiphone Wilshire and figured it would make a reasonable excuse to take a look at this guitar.

Not that we really need any excuse to consider a Wilshire here at Guitarless.  We frickin’ love the Wilshire.

Released a couple of months back, Epiphone’s new Wilshire is a reproduction of the original ’66 model.  All mahogany body and neck and a traditional set-neck joint – meeting at the 22nd fret and allowing excellent access to the dusty end of the fingerboard.  A cool, 3-ply (white/black/white) pickguard houses the individual volume and tone controls and the pickup toggle. The pickups themselves are the traditional mini-humbuckers. Splendid.

Hardware all over, including the pickup covers, is nickel and the bat-wing headstock tops things off very, very nicely.

Yes sir, we love the Wilshire.

Here, have a listen:
