Epiphone Introduces Limited Edition "1939" Century Guitar Amp — Video

Epiphone has introduced a classic for the 21st century.

The limited-edition “1939” Century Amp is a modern 18-watt all-tube, guitar amp with a 12-inch speaker that revives an Art Deco-era masterpiece from Epiphone’s early days in Manhattan.

The Epiphone “1939” Century is a faithful replica of the classic 1930s-era cabinet design, including bent rims, an all-metal handle, six-point star screws and vintage-style grill cloth, but with newly designed all-tube electronics.

Plus, the “1939” Century includes three uniquely voiced inputs and an internal bias adjustment for extra tone control.

In the late Thirties, Epiphone was already blazing a trail for what founder Epi Stathopoulo saw as the future—the electric guitar. And now in the 21st century, the “1939” Century Amp returns with a modern all-tube amp design with a powerful, full-toned 12-inch Electar speaker in a compact, easy-to-carry, cabinet that has been featured in every vintage guitar book!
