Epiphone

The return of a bold guitar for everything from hard rock to jazz fusion.

The classic Epiphone Genesis was one of Epiphone's most original and modern designs when it was first published in the Epiphone catalog in late 1979. It was intended as a new beginning for Epiphone--a truly original solid body design that could hold its ground with a Les Paul, giving players the added advantage of an eye-catching double cutaway. The proposed Epiphone Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO would bring back this collector's favorite in all its original glory with added features like coil-tapping, Epiphone ProBucker™ pickups and Grover™ tuners along with a beautiful AAA flame maple veneer top and solid mahogany body in four new beautiful color finishes, including Black Cherry, Midnight Ebony, Midnight Sapphire, and Vintage Sunburst.

Original Genesis Ads circa 1979
Early Genesis ads proclaimed "this isn't a guitar for shy people" and "we've created a monster," and you can see why. Along with its bold shape and beautiful finish, the Genesis featured coil-tapping for both pickups via a separate toggle switch. Coil-tapping was a new concept to guitar players and the original Genesis was a bold instrument with a warm sound that could do anything from hard rock to fusion jazz with its incredible sustain from the mahogany body. In many ways, the Genesis was part of Epiphone's longstanding tradition of giving players more for their money at a level of quality and consistency other guitar makers can't maintain. Today, Epiphone is still a leader in giving players a custom shop experience. The Epiphone Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO would take it a step further by adding Epiphone's bold ProBucker™ pickups with individual coil-tapping for the rhythm and lead pickups to potentially put the Genesis back to its rightful place among Epiphone's greatest instruments.

AAA Flame Maple Top and Futuristic Features
The Epiphone Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO would combine a solid mahogany body with a AAA flame maple veneer, delivering the classic tone and sustain that made the Genesis stand out in a crowd. The double cutaway body features 1-ply cream binding on the top for a beautiful vintage look. The mahogany neck has a 24.75" scale with a 12" radius and features a 1960s SlimTaper™ "D" profile--a player's favorite--along with a glued-in neck joint for lifelong stability. The rosewood fingerboard comes with pearloid trapezoid inlays, 22 medium-jumbo frets and a 1.68" nut along with single ply cream binding along the fingerboard.

Genesis Power: Epiphone ProBucker™ Humbuckers with Coil-Tapping
The original Genesis model featured coil-tapping via a small mini toggle. However, the original Genesis did not allow for coil-tapping each individual pickup. The new Epiphone Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO zooms into the 21st century with ProBucker™ pickups with coil-tapping on both the rhythm and lead pickups. ProBucker™ pickups feature Alnico II magnets, the same magnets used in sought-after vintage PAF humbuckers. Alnico II magnets provide a rich, warm tone with a sparkling high end and a solid low end. The Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO features a ProBucker-2™ in the neck position and a ProBucker-3™ in the bridge position. The ProBucker-3™ is slightly overwound to provide balance with the neck pickup with an added bit of edge for lead work. ProBuckers™ emulate the sound of original PAF pickups which were hand-wound with a few extra turns of wire.

Both of the Ltd. Ed. Genesis PRO's pickups feature coil-tapping, which is activated by a push/pull volume SpeedKnob control, allowing players an infinite variety of pickups sounds from single-coil bark to full humbucker bite. When winding humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation, free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax. Epiphone uses only the highest quality parts for its pickups, such as ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, Alnico magnets and the finest magnet wire available.

A Classic Made to Last a Lifetime
The Epiphone Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO features Epiphone's legendary rock-solid gold hardware including a LockTone™ Tune-o-matic fully adjustable bridge and a Stopbar tailpiece. And now, Epiphone's updated, patent pending design auto locks the bridge and tailpiece in place with no tools needed! This also results in improved sustain. The Epiphone Ltd. Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO uses 1" diameter potentiometers for better "throw," longer life and reliable service. Epiphone's all-metal toggle switches use rugged spring-steel contacts to ensure years of reliable service and performance. Epiphone's proprietary output jack features an improved contact shape and heavy-duty spring steel to increase reliability and gold Grover™ 14:1 machine heads on a classic '60s era Epiphone Sloped Dovewing headstock to ensure tuning stability and long life.

      Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO Electric Guitar:

      This is my 60th guitar so I have some knowledge. Needed intonation and bridge raised. After that all was well. I play locally 2-3 times a month and this guitar plays all styles. While you know something must be missing at this price point, you'll be hard pressed to find it. The guitar is great looking and sounds as good as my Gibsons. Changing the pickups may not be necessary. Epiphone makes extremely playable guitars for remarkabke prices which is greatly appreciated.

        Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO Electric Guitar:

        Wonderful guitar! I love the blue color and finish. Workmanship is top-notch and electronics and pickups are great too. Being my first purchase of a "new" Epiphone built in China, I was a little wary but all the reviews I could find were extremely positive so I got one and I couldn't be happier. I tried many other guitars in the same price range (mostly built in Korea which I think are good quality) and I'd put this up against the best Korean builds out there. Just stunning and I couldn' find the slightest production flaw ANYWHERE! The most pleasant surprises were the excellent Grover tuners and the perfectly set and AAA+ quality pearl trap inlays- the kind of inlays you'd expect to find only on WAY more expensive guitars. Everything about the guitar is perfect for me- great retro-ish looks, solid build quality, good weight (~8 lbs- not too heavy or too light), good balance (no neck dive) and feels much like a Les Paul to play- same basic neck and fret board dimensions as my '95 Epi LP that I've had for nearly 16 years and am so used to. After I made some basic setup adjustments, it played smootly and fast- just like my Epi LP that has had a pro tech setup. Probuckers sound strong and FAT on dual-coil and kind of Stratocaster-like on singles. I prefer the dual-coil setting but I prefer humbuckers in general anyway. Nice to have the extra tone versatility though. It's flat out an awesome guitar and value for the money. I also like that it is an Epiphone remake of an Epiphone and it isn't just another comprimised copy of some high-end guitar that you can't afford. I feel it adds to its "credibilty" and mojo because you don't have to feel like you've "settled" for something less. If anything, from what I've been reading, it is a big IMPROVEMENT over the original Genesis- mainly in that it is a full 2 to 3 lbs lighter! These are limited production guitars and I'm glad I got mine while I could! Also there is a special case that you can get for it but it fits perfectly in my standard Epi LP case.

            Arrived today, the pictures do not do the finish justice. This is a really beautiful guitar. The guitar set up nicely, neck is straight, frets are good, needed intonation and action adjustment. The pickups sound excellent. I haven't weighed it but it is not too heavy. I am used to fatter necks but this one is not too skinny.
            I also bought an Elitist Les Paul a few years ago and have to say the Genesis looks and sounds better at first glance.
            Epiphone is making some great guitars these days!!!

            Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO Electric Guitar:

            I bought this guitar as a "player" I wouldn't mind taking out that would be reasonable sounding, play well, and versatile, but which I wouldn't cry about if something bad happened to it. It definitely delivered on that score.

            I got a very worthwhile double cutaway LP-type guitar with a few tricks up its sleeve. It's got two reasonably nice humbuckers on it that can be tapped using push-pull speed knobs. I suppose it would be possible to get better Pus, but the ones in the guitar sound pretty good. I like the humbucker sound more than the tapped sound, at least with my amp (a vintage Mesa/Boogie), but the fact that it's got tappable coils gives an added level of flexibility. That said, I have another guitar with P-90s on and those are just so awesome sounding these aren't close.

            The workmanship on my guitar is solid and I didn't encounter any particular issues. with it. But that said, I got a pro setup to have it set up for Eb with a hybrid set (10-50) and that improved it quite a bit. (I'll probably have it moved out of Eb next time it gets a setup, though.) Bending on it is smooth and it is playable all the way up the neck, with the double cutaway staying out of your way when you're up the neck.

            In short, it does the classic rock sound quite well and would be a very affordable good instrument for a new player upgrading from a starter instrument, or, like me, someone who wanted a stage guitar that played well.

            I really only have two complaints. The finish is poly (unsurprisingly). It wasn't bad looking but glossier than I would really like, especially on the neck, which I prefer to be satin. I buffed the neck down a little, which helped, but still, pure satin would have been more comfortable. The other is that the pickup selector switch is in an unusual spot, below the bridge (see the pictures). I like using the pickup selector by doing the Jimmy Page trick of setting up the humbuckers with neck volume about 2 and bridge on 9, using both pickups for rhythm and bridge only for lead. The selector was in a kind of strange spot and I would prefer it to be in the same spot it would be on ether an SG or a LP.

              This was advertised as a restock or gently used, but I can't find any evidence of use. I'm very pleased with Musician's Friend regarding this purchase. The Epiphone's quality is as good as I can use and the versatility of sound will be very useful in my home recording.

              Comments about Epiphone Limited Edition Genesis Deluxe PRO Electric Guitar:

              A short review of what "can" be a great guitar. First off the bad. I purchased two of these guitars about a month apart. Both guitars had a common problem. Frets that weren't seated properly. I could have sent them back but everything else about the guitars was amazing.

              After having fret work completed on both guitars they play and sound great. I believe the pickups sound better than my Gibson Les Paul. Great sustain, just goes on and on.

              The finish is beautiful on these guitars. Much more than what you see in the pictures on this site. My only complaint about the finish would be that one of the guitars looked as though it had been played (pick scratches), even though it was new(?).

              I owned an original Genesis back in 1980. And had regretted selling it ever since. Now I have two of the new ones,
              red and black. And they're much better than the original.

              If you buy one make sure to check all the frets. And there is a special Epiphone Genesis case to be had, if you know where to look.

              So in the end I would recommend buying this guitar. You or your luthier will probably have some work to do on it since Epiphone didn't finish the job. But it sure is one sweet guitar.
