1961 Epiphone Wilshire
PRICE: $4,200.00

CODE: AA002
 



Made in the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan from Gibson materials, this 1961 Epiphone Wilshire has been in my possession since 1978. It is not your "closet classic" but it is in great shape with no neck breaks either at the headstock or the heel/ body joint as so many of these have. I have played this guitar from coast to coast and can verify it's originality. The original Rivoli tremolo was gone when I got it and I installed the USA Grover tuners at that time (that was the thing to do back then!) but all of the electronics are original and have never left the guitar. The P-90's sound great! The Brazilian rosewood fingerboard has new frets and there is one crack going from the "high E" tuner to the edge where the tuner caught years ago and split the mahogany... it has no bearing on the strength of the neck. The strap button was moved to the upper horn for better balance while playing. This is a player's guitar, having the beautiful faded cherry lacquer finish that so many of the older Gibsons have. Email me for more pics... price does not include shipping, no dealers, please.
