Epiphone has teamed up with Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson to create the new Nancy Wilson Signature Fanatic guitar.
Based on Wilson's Gibson Nancy Wilson Nighthawk Standard – which was first introduced in 2013 – the guitar features a Nighthawk-shaped mahogany body and a figured maple veneer top, plus a rounded "C" profile mahogany neck with an ebony fretboard, and a commemorative "Fanatic" truss-rod cover.
Sonically, the Fanatic is outfitted with ProBucker humbuckers, controlled by a five-way pickup selector switch, and master volume and tone controls.
"In the midst of the distant Eighties, I was approached by Gibson to design a signature model,” Wilson said of the guitar in a statement.
“I put pencil to paper to first design the body shape and chose a curvy female diminutive silhouette for the cut away. Many years later the body shape remains exact and the hardware I requested makes the Fanatic a solid citizen amongst the great rock guitar screamers.”
The Epiphone Nancy Wilson Signature Fanatic guitar will be sold – with a hardshell case included and in a Fireburst Gloss finish – for $529.
