Faith, love, luck, and deluxe appointments from the legendary Joan Sebastian and Epiphone.
As a winner of 11 Grammys and a member of the Billboard Hall of Fame, Joan Sebastian is perhaps Mexico’s most famous and celebrated singer/songwriter with a career spanning 35 years and hundreds of songs. From a philosophy driven by three simple beliefs—Faith, Love and Luck—Joan draws strength and inspiration. Epiphone and Joan Sebastian unite to create a guitar that incorporates those three beliefs into each instrument.
Presenting the Joan Sebastian signature Triunfadora (the Achiever) acoustic/electric guitar. A Guitar for the achiever in all of us: From the moment you first see the distinctive mother-of-pearl inlays featuring the Cross (Faith), the Heart (Love) and the Horseshoe (Luck), the new Joan Sebastian Triunfadora is an inspiration. But once you pick up the guitar and you play it, you know that this is something special.
The Perfect Combination of Size and Power
With a body shape inspired by Gibson’s famous J-185, the Triunfadora is slightly smaller than a Super Jumbo guitar making it a much more comfortable instrument to play while still maintaining great acoustic power and projection. Producing a big sound with clear acoustics, it is equally impressive for powerful strumming or delicate fingerpicking, and everything in between. And, its beautiful rounded cut-away not only gives it a distinctive look, but also allows for easy fret access up to its 20th fret.
Quality Tone Woods
At the heart of every guitar is the wood and with an acoustic guitar, nothing contributes more to its tone than the top. That's why the Triunfadora features a Solid Sitka Spruce top with hand-scalloped, lightweight bracing that only improves with age. A solid Mahogany neck is hand-fitted to its Rosewood body using a traditional dovetail neck joint and Titebond glue providing maximum surface contact and strength. Combined, the result is a guitar with deep rich lows and shimmering highs with just the right amount of mid-range. Top it all off with an elegant solid Rosewood bridge with mother-of-pearl horseshoe inlays and you’ve got a one-of-a-kind instrument.
When you're ready to perform live, so is the Triunfadora. Powered by an eSonic preamp, you have a Master Volume control as well as Bass, Treble, and EQ shape controls right at your fingertips. Capturing both body and string sound, the preamp is connected to a Nano Flex low impedance non-piezo pickup. Plug in using the combination ¼ output/endpin jack and you're ready to go live anytime, anywhere.
A Dream to Play
The Triunfadora is not only easy on the eyes and ears, it's easy to play as well. The neck features Epiphone’s famous SlimTaper profile. This D-shaped neck is slim enough to give you the speed you want but thick enough to provide the stability and playing comfort you need performance after performance. At 1.725, the nut width and therefore the string spacing is just slightly wider than your typical acoustic guitar. This not only makes it easy to finger notes more cleanly, it also makes it perfect for finger-style picking.
Other Premium Features
The Triunfadora also features a smooth, durable Rosewood fingerboard fitted with 20 medium/jumbo frets for years of playing enjoyment. Premium 14:1 die-cast machine heads provide excellent tuning accuracy and stability. Not to mention, Joan's signature on the back of the headstock. Other premium touches include a unique soundhole rosette, cross fingerboard inlays, a multi-bound body on the top and back as well as a bound fingerboard.
