Epiphone continues its 2014 monthly giveaways by offering fans a chance to win one of the most famous and beloved archtops in its long history, the Limited-Edition ES-175 Premium.
The Epiphone ES-175 Premium is a faithful recreation of what many consider the most famous electric archtop in popular music, heard on classics from jazz to rock in the hands of pioneers like Joe Pass, Scotty Moore (Elvis Presley), and Wes Montgomery. Epiphone’s long history of innovation began with designing archtop guitars. And now, Epiphone steps up its game again with the new Ltd. Ed. ES-175 Premium featuring Gibson USA ’57 Classic pickups for superior sound and a vintage-inspired “aged” Lacquer finish that plays like a 50s original at a price anyone can afford.
“Epiphone archtops are world famous and every player looks to owning at least one in their collection,” said Epiphone President Jim Rosenberg. “The Limited-Edition ES-175 Premium brings the profile, sound, and look of a classic ES-175 to guitar players around the world, which is great since vintage models are not only four times the price, but no one who owns an ES-175 ever wants to part with it.”
