Epiphone Inspired By 1964 Texan Acoustic Electric Guitar - (Vintage Cherryburst)

From the Manufacturer

Epiphone Inspired by "1964" Texan

Since 1958, the Texan has been Epiphone's Best Selling (AJ) Body Shape

Since it's introduction in 1958, the Epiphone Texan has been the choice of countless musicians including Paul McCartney, Peter Frampton and Noel Gallagher. In fact, McCartney wrote and recorded "Yesterday," one of the most recorded and popular songs ever, on his 1964 Texan and still uses it on stage today. Now, Epiphone brings back the Texan combining all the great features of the original with modern updates for today's musician.

Classic Advanced Jumbo Sound

Unlike dreadnoughts, the Epiphone Texan features a more rounded upper bout and a larger lower bout with a subtle waist resembling a bell shape. This design enables a more balanced tone with shimmering highs, deeper lows and a clearer mid-range that's perfect for singer/songwriters and solo performers. Like the original, the new Texan features a premium Solid Spruce top with a solid mahogany back and mahogany rims. Spruce is a tonewood that improves with age and playing time, so play your Texan a lot.

Setting This Texan Apart

A lot has been done to improve the Epiphone Texan without changing the guitar's key historic features. The Inspired by Texan now includes a fixed, compensated saddle. Unlike the original adjustable style, the Texan's new saddle provides improved tuning accuracy and better string vibration transfer to the top, which results in improved sustain. And for today's player, Epiphone adds Shadow's state-of-the-art Sonic preamp system with the revolutionary under-saddle NanoFlex low-impedance pickup to allow acoustic players to "plug in."

Discretely mounted inside the sound hole, the Sonic preamp features an easy-access volume control with high and low EQ controls. There's also a "phase" switch that instantly cuts feedback without affecting tone. The Nanoflex pickup is the only pickup that senses both the vibrations of the strings and the movements of the soundboard simultaneously. So, the sound is truly "acoustic," combining accurate body and string tone with percussive attack. It's like having a microphone mixed with an under-saddle pickup. Due to active amplification directly at the pickup and 100% shielding of the entire system, there is no signal loss and no "hum" created. A battery indicator LED turns on when the battery is low and should be replaced within 30 minutes. The preamp is powered by two 2032 lithium batteries and the complete system is extremely light and weighs far less than ordinary 9V systems. A premium Shadow output jack is incorporated into the endpin jack.

Solid Mahogany Neck

The SlimTaper solid mahogany neck is glued into the body at the 14th fret and is topped with a rosewood fingerboard adorned with the '60s style parallelogram inlays. Keeping the Texan in tune are vintage style tuners (without the vintage headache) with classic small oval buttons. Epiphone has even reproduced the original blue rectangular soundhole label from the 1960s for yet another touch of vintage authenticity.

About Epiphone

Epiphone is one of American's oldest and most revered instrument makers and since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music. The name evokes both history and the spirit of invention. Epiphone has been an audible presence in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s. From swing-era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, R&B, and early rock n' roll. From the "British Invasion" to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash. And now, in the 21st century, new Epiphone technical breakthroughs such as the ProBucker pickup, series parallel switching, built-in KillSwitch pots, the Shadow NanoFlex and NanoMag pickup systems, and premier acoustic/electric guitars with the eSonic preamp have brought the historic name to a new generation.

This guitar, while unplugged, has a sound that is very close to the one you hear on "Blackbird". Its electronics don't measure up. If I roll the bass up (at all) from the little wheel located inside the sound-hole, it becomes so bassy that it feeds back heavily. Otherwise it's thin sounding on account of the pickup used.

But, overall it's a fantastic deal. You can mic it up and it will work beautifully. Mine was fast to arrive and I am completely satisfied as I did not expect the electronics to blow my mind.

Hope this is helpful!

I bought this gorgeous guitar in April of 2013 so I've had it about 18 months. I love this guitar. I am a beginner guitar player and at first the neck felt a little chunky to me but it doesn't anymore now that I've gotten used to it. I remember thinking, "I'm going to buy it anyway because it's a replica of Paul's Texan!". So I've been practicing and practicing on it and now I can say that I truly love this guitar. I think it sounds beautiful especially with Ernie Ball acoustic strings. Blackbird and Yesterday sound really nice and pretty authentic when played on this guitar. It's loud and bright when you want the Beatle chiming guitar sound and it also can sound mellow and warm when fingerpicking. All in all, a great guitar for a good price.

For the money, I would give this guitar five stars. I wish it weren't acoustic / electric, simply because the electric sound is pretty bad. Through an amplifier, this is kind of tinny AND bass heavy although I play with heavy strings and suspect that the bass might be mitigated somewhat by light to medium strings. If you're buying this for the electric aspect I would recommend against it, or at least find a place to play it and see if this is what you want. You can get this quality of electronics for a lower pricepoint.

Where this guitar excels is playability. I love the jumbo guitar feel and this has it. Epiphone does a really great job getting quality sound for the pricepoint, and while I don't think anyone will mistake this for a guitar in the four-figure range, the sound from this guitar is booming, clear and bright. The action is fair and it feels really great when you're playing it.

This is a phenomenal entry-level acoustic or regular use guitar. I think if you aspire for more ambitious use of this one you may be disappointed. But I play this guitar often (acoustically), I love playing it, and I would buy this guitar again.
