Listening To The Epiphone Wilshire
We 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:
