Oh, pretty 12-string.
The 12-string Epiphone Limited Edition Roy Orbison Bard Acoustic Guitar Package delivers a list of impressive Roy Orbison collectibles. Most notable among them is the limited edition "Oh, Pretty Woman" acoustic guitar. Produced in cooperation with the estate of legendary singer/songwriter Roy Orbison, this signature guitar is based upon Roy's own 1962 Epiphone Bard 12-string acoustic guitar. Orbison used his original Epiphone guitar to write and perform many of his best-known songs, including perhaps his biggest hit, "Oh, Pretty Woman."
The new Epiphone "Oh, Pretty Woman" is a faithful reproduction of the 1962 original and features a solid spruce top, a solid mahogany back, a rosewood 12-string bridge and vintage tuners. For this limited edition release, the back of the guitar's headstock includes a replica of Roy Orbison's signature and the notation for the first measure of the famous "Oh, Pretty Woman" introduction riff.
Also included in this limited edition guitar package is a hardshell guitar case with Roy's signature and sunglass icon on it; a certificate of authenticity hand-signed by Roy's widow, Barbara Orbison and Roy's son, Roy Orbison, Jr.; a black-and-white photo of Roy with his original Epiphone Bard 12-string, a "sunglass" lapel pin, and a copy of the "Oh, Pretty Woman" sheet music. The certificate and photo are presented in a leatherette.
"As a young brilliant guitar player growing up in West Texas, Roy would have never dreamt that he would one day have his own Epiphone signature guitar named after him," said Barbara Orbison, Roy's widow. "Roy wrote 'Oh Pretty Woman' on his Epiphone 12-string acoustic guitar, which features one of the most instantly recognizable rock n' roll guitar riffs and has remained iconic and fresh to this day. I hope the next generation of artists will feel inspired to write another great rock n' roll song thanks to the Epiphone signature Roy Orbison 12-string acoustic guitar."
