CC Epiphone Backdate No. 006

Regular price $1,199.99

Video Demo: Modded in-house by 1929, here's a late 2010's Epiphone Masterbilt DeLuxe (from the Century Collection) that we've Backdated to an Gibson ES-250 style guitar, complete with Charlie Christian pickup. This 17" archtop has a solid spruce top and laminated maple sides and back, which are great for feedback suppression. It has been modified to fit a Pete Biltoft CC pickup with a 3-point mount (custom wound to our specs), ES-250 repro knobs, hand bound ES-250 style tortoise pickguard made by 1929 of course, CTS pots, paper in oil capacitor, and a custom jack plate. The original bridge has been replaced with a rosewood one, and the original electronics (piezo and preamp/battery) have been removed. The body has also been polished to a soft shine, as these are satin from the factory. Includes a hardshell case!

This is a USED guitar that has been modified. It suffered a little shipping damage when I received it. Luckily it was nothing serious, but I've discounted the guitar accordingly. There's some finish chipping and finish cracks around the bass side f-hole. Nothing structural, but I glued one of the cracks just in case it went through the wood. There's a little ding on the headstock edge too, but that's about it I believe. Plays great and sounds great. 

Plays great, looks slick, sounds straight out of 1939, and built with modern construction!
