Epiphone has introduced a classic for the 21st century. The limited-edition “1939” Century Amp is a modern 18-watt all-tube, guitar amplifier with a 12-inch speaker that revives an Art Deco-era masterpiece from Epiphone’s early days in Manhattan.
Back in the late Thirties when the electric guitar was still in its infancy, Epiphone produced a variety of Electar model amplifiers to pair with their electric guitar models.
The Century and Zephyr amps were designed to go with Epiphone’s classiest, top-of-the-line electric guitar models with the same names. Unlike most amps produced at the time, which resembled luggage, the Century and Zephyr amps were housed in maple or birch cabinets with tasteful art deco styling that looked right at home on stage in the upscale nightclubs where they were often used.
Epiphone recently introduced a reissue of the 1939 Century amplifier.
This compact 20-watt 1x12 combo faithfully reproduces the original version’s cabinet down to the six-point screws, grill cloth and chrome-plated carrying handle while offering a newly designed tube amp circuit.
I know! It’s so hard to find just the perfect gift for that someone special. That’s why we’re here to help. This year, if your honey is into acoustic guitar, we’ve got some great ideas for a Valentine’s surprise.
To kick off 2015, Epiphone has announced its new exclusive signature model designed by Gary Clark Jr.—the Ltd. Ed. Gary Clark Jr. “Blak and Blu” Casino with trapeze tailpiece or Bigsby Vibrato. The guitar will be available in spring 2015.
Santa Cruz-based hard rock/heavy metal trio Archer released their first single, "My Atrocity," October 31. It's also the first song from their upcoming studio album, which is due in early 2015. The album was produced by Mike Clink (Guns N' Roses, Megadeth, UFO) and mastered by Maor Appelbaum (Halford, Sepultura, Yngwie Malmsteen).
Playing guitar is supposed to be fun. That’s why it’s called “playing” guitar and not “working.”
However, there are times when playing guitar isn’t as much fun or as easy as it could be. Epiphone has addressed a few of these instances with a pair of new guitar models: the PRO-1 acoustic and the Les Paul Classic-T solidbody electric.
