Regular price $1,499.00

Video Demo of a Sunburst version of this Backdate: 

Modded in-house by 1929, here's a late 2010's Epiphone Masterbilt DeLuxe (from the Century Collection) that we've Backdated to a 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) and is also fitted with a repro Super 400 tailpiece, custom amber tuner buttons, new Gotoh tuners, ES-250 repro knobs, hand bound ES-250 style cream pearloid 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 nice hardshell case! 

This is a USED guitar that has been modified. That said, it's in really good shape with very little wear. I can fill the visible old tuner holes prior to shipping if you'd prefer. There's also a little finish chip by the pickup cavity that I'll touch up. 

Looks, plays, and sounds like hot pancakes with butter, and built with modern construction!
