This hollowbody is suprisingly lightweight, a huge plus on a large guitar, and the neck is very comfortable. Epiphones ‘Elite’ series of guitars are instruments that are bordering on custom shop quality. Many of the inner workings, like the pickups, circuitry, toggles, and tuners are all American made in a special factory that is devoted to their manufacture where they receive a high degree of hands-on luthier attention.

You’ll find the Elite 1965 Casino true to the original made famous by The Beatles. A finely crafted, great-sounding, and easy-playing instrument that beautifully blurs the line between Epiphone and Gibson.

Epiphone Ltd Ed Wilshire PRO Electric Guitar Review http://guitar-reviewer.com/epiphone-ltd-ed-wilshire-pro-electric-guitar-review http://guitar-reviewer.com/epiphone-ltd-ed-wilshire-pro-electric-guitar-review#comments Thu, 02 Sep 2010 00:48:22 +0000 admin http://guitar-reviewer.com/?p=140 The original Epiphone Wilshire guitars have been in quite high demand (and costing major $$) lately. Epiphone has responded to the demand and has re-released this classic electric guitar and made it affordable to the masses without losing any of the quality that made the Wilshire electric guitar so popular.

The Epiphone Ltd Ed Wilshire Pro electric guitar features a double-cutaway mahogany body with a set mahogany neck, joining the body at the 22nd fret. This guitar hardly weighs a thing and is quite comfortable to play.

The Epiphone Wilshire Pro electric guitar uses what is referred to as the “batwing” headstock. A classic design that improves tuning ease and accuracy by offering a straight string-pull design, the headstock is adorned like the original with the vintage Epiphone logo in gold. Other features include a 1960′s SlimTaper neck profile with Rosewood fingerboard, premium 14:1 die-cast tuners, and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup.
