The EPIPHONE INSPIRED BY 1964 TEXAN, Vintage Cherryburst has been the choice of countless musicians including Paul McCartney, Peter Frampton and Noel Gallagher. The INSPIRED BY 1964 TEXAN combines all the great features of the original with modern updates for today's musician.
EPIPHONE INSPIRED BY 1964 TEXAN features a more rounded upper bout and a larger lower bout with a subtle waist. Resembling a bell shape, this leads to a more balanced tone with shimmering highs, deeper lows and clearer mid-range that's perfect for singer/songwriters and other solo performers.
Like the original, the new Texan features a premium solid Spruce top with a solid Mahogany back and Mahogany rims. Solid woods resonate beautifully and only improve with age. The neck is solid Mahogany topped with a Rosewood fingerboard adorned with the original parallelogram inlays.
Hand-fitted and glued into the body, the neck features Epiphone's SlimTaper(tm) neck profile that's comfortable and easy to play. Keeping the guitar in tune are original-style but updated 14:1 ratio vintage tuners with classic small oval buttons. Epiphone has even reproduced the original blue rectangular sound hole label from the 1960's for yet another touch of authenticity.
