OVERVIEW

A faithful reissue of the classic thinline all-hollowbody archtop.

Epiphone presents the new Inspired by “1966” Century electric guitar, a faithful reissue of the classic thinline all-hollowbody archtop featuring the Epiphone P-90 PRO single-coil pickup.

Historic Epiphone Century Story
In Epiphone history, the “Century” name goes all the way back to the 1930s big band era, when the “House of Stathopoulo” was making some of the best archtops ever made. And when Epiphone merged with Gibson and moved its productions to Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1957, the Century was reborn as a popular thinline archtop, similar to a Casino or a “335” but with a slightly smaller body and a single P-90 pickup.

A Modern Archtop Inspired by “1966”
The new Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century hollowbody thinline archtop revives the mid 60s design prized by collectors for their comfortable, lightweight body with neck joint at the 14th fret and warm, woody tone. The Laminated Maple body features a Maple top and both the top and back have Ivory colored single layer binding. The Mahogany neck has a Rounded “C” shape and a 24.75” scale with a simple but elegant Rosewood fingerboard with Pearloid “Dot” inlays, 20 medium frets, and an original nylon nut. And a 1960s era Replica Blue Soundhole Label can be seen through the upper f-hole. The white and black layered pickguard has a classic 60s era "E”.

New P-90 PRO Pickup
The Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century is powered by the new single coil P-90 PRO pickup, recognized around the world as the most versatile and expressive single coil pickup available. Just like originals P-90s, the Epiphone P-90 PRO is an extremely sensitive pickup that easily bends to a player's unique touch. With its distinctive growl and wide tonal range, it's great for rock and roll, pop, jazz, country, or anything you want to throw at it. The P-90 PRO features 18% Nickel Silver covers designed and tooled from the ground up with new bobbins manufactured to historic dimensions, Elektrisola magnet wire, sand cast Alnico V magnets, and pole shoes manufactured using correct alloy. And for you sticklers to detail, Epiphone P-90 PROs also have tin plated brass base plates like those used on '50s and 60s era Gibson P-90 pickups. Controls are simple Master and Tone knobs.

Solid Hardware
The Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century includes legendary Wilkinson Vintage 3-in-a-row machine heads with plastic Ivory buttons with a 14:1 tuning ratio that are mounted on a Historic Sloped Dovewing headstock with a gold "Epiphone" logo. The dual action truss rod has '60s era black "Bullet” cover with a Vintage "E" in white. The floating adjustable Rosewood bridge is supported by a traditional “Trapeze” style tailpiece. The “1966” Century comes strung at the factory with D'Addario strings.

Amazing!!!

By Broberts

Comments about Epiphone Century Archtop Electric Guitar:

I was skeptical about this guitar as I had played many epiphones and none ever really lived up to my expectations. This guitar plays and feels better in my hands than my gold top Gibson lespaul. Love it. The P90 is amazing.

      Comments about Epiphone Century Archtop Electric Guitar:

      I played this in a music store I went to looking for something else...love the retro look. I played it and fell in love. Did some research and bought it through MF. The sound is amazing, thinking about upgrading the nut and tuners but otherwise this is a great axe at a decent price. I play Jazz & pop and this fits it all
