Epiphone has teamed up with up-and-coming Austin, Texas-based singer/songwriter and guitarist Emily Wolfe to create a new signature model.
The Emily Wolfe Sheraton Stealth features a maple body and a mahogany neck that sports an Indian Laurel fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and mother-of-pearl block inlays with abalone lightning bolts.
Sounds on the guitar come by way of a pair of Epiphone Alnico Classic Pro humbucker pickups, controlled by two volume knobs, a single tone knob, and a three-way switch.
Other features on the guitar include a Graph Tech nut, an Epiphone LockTone tune-o-matic bridge, and Grover Rotomatic tuning machines. Further visual appointments include gold hardware, a ‘60s Kalamazoo-shape headstock with Wolfe’s mother-of-pearl tree of life logo on the front, and diamond f-holes, a nod to Trini Lopez's signature Gibson.
“My Sheraton is more than a guitar, it's an extension of me and somehow has the same magic that a rare vintage instrument has, in that songs flow out of it every day,” Wolfe said of her new signature model in a statement.
“There's no barrier between my creativity as an artist and the audience because my Sheraton so easily becomes a part of me.”
The Epiphone Emily Wolfe Sheraton Stealth guitar is available now – in a Black Aged Gloss finish – for $799.
