Designed after the popular rocker's classic model with modern L.R. Baggs electronics.
The Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan Premium Outfit was designed with the guitar legend whose name it bears, and features a solid spruce top with a rare Faded Vintageburst finish and the same L. R. Baggs DS-ELE 2-pickup system Frampton uses on his personal vintage Texan. It also comes with Schaller M6 machine heads, a hand-signed certificate of authenticity and a premium hard case. Epiphone limited the run on these Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan Premium Outfit acoustic-electrics to 100 guitars.
Frampton purchased his original Texan in 1968 while recording with Humble Pie. “I loved Steve Marriott’s guitar which was an Epiphone Frontier,” recalled Frampton. “I asked our guitar tech if he could find me one like it and he came back with the Texan. And I played it and loved it. Mine was made only three months apart from Paul McCartney’s in 1964. He wrote “Yesterday” on his, and I wrote “Baby I Love Your Way” on mine.”
Frampton’s original 1964 Texan has been his main songwriting guitar since the early '70s and has been a constant companion on the road until it was retired in favor of his new Ltd. Ed. “1964” Texan. “I played the prototype on a British TV show and it sounded incredible. I’m so thrilled and honored.”
Solid Spruce Top with Faded Vintageburst Finish
Like Frampton’s vintage 1964 Texan, this modernized Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan Premium Outfit has a solid mahogany body and a solid spruce 1960s SlimTaper C-profile with a 25.5” scale length, 20 medium jumbo frets, a 12” radius, and a pau ferro fingerboard with pearloid "parallelograms” inlays. The traditional sloped Dovewing headstock comes with a replica of Frampton’s signature in silver, plus Frampton’s original serial number-- “205898"--on the back along with a “2018 Edition” logo. The 2-way adjustable truss rod has an Epiphone “bullet”-shaped cover with a '60s-era Epiphone “E” logo in white. The pau ferro reverse belly bridge has a bone saddle and white bridge pins with "Abalone" dots. The tortoiseshell-style pickguard also has a '60s era silver “E” emblem.
Peter Frampton customized this Epiphone Ltd. Ed. “1964” Texan Premium Outfit with the same cutting-edge L. R. Baggs DS-ELE system he uses on the road with his original ’64 Texan. The DS-ELE system is a miniature onboard combination microphone and pickup mixing system with Class A electronics featuring an L. R. Baggs Element Transducer and an L. R. Baggs FET Omni-Condenser Microphone in the guitar body. The unique system allows for both mono or split stereo operation and incredible accurate reproduction of the true acoustic tone of the Texan through any PA system. The soundhole-mounted pickup includes Phase control and Master Volume and Tone controls along with a tunable low-cut filter for the microphone element as well as phase control. The system is powered by a standard 9-volt battery
This Ltd. Ed. Peter Frampton "1964" Texan Premium Outfit includes the same Schaller M6 machine heads that Frampton uses on his customized ’64 Texan, along with nickel strap buttons at the neck heel and body and a '60s-era blue soundhole label with the serial number and original Texan model number: FT-79. The Premium Outfit includes a hand-signed certificate of authenticity, presentation binder, and premium hard case.
