The Genesis made its first appeared in the1979 Epiphone catalogue, with a design that was to compete with the Les Paul in terms of power and versatility. This collector’s favourite is now back, in limited numbers, in the form of the Epiphone Genesis Deluxe Pro.
The Limited Edition Epiphone Genesis Deluxe Pro enjoys the classic styling and ethos of the original, along with updates to bring it in-line with modern offerings. Such features include, an AAA flame maple veneer top and solid mahogany body, Epiphone ProBucker pickups with individual coil taps, and Grover tuners.
As mentioned above, the Epiphone Limited Edition Genesis Deluxe Pro is constructed from solid mahogany, with a beautiful AAA quilt maple veneer top, offering classic tone and sustain. The Genesis shape has a dual cutaway design, for unparalleled access to the upper register, which has been finished with a vintage single-ply cream binding.
Glued into the body of the Epiphone Limited Edition Genesis Deluxe Pro Electric Guitar is a mahogany neck carved to the 1960s SlimTaper "D" profile. A 22-medium jumbo fretted rosewood fingerboard, with a 12” radius, tops this, offering pearloid trapezoid inlays, a single-ply cream binding, and a nut width of 1.68".
At one end of its neck the Epiphone Limited Edition Genesis Deluxe Pro gives you a classic '60s era Epiphone Sloped Dovewing headstock, equipped with a set of gold Grover machine heads giving solid tuning stability. The other end sees the sustain-improving duo of a gold LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece, with Epiphone’s updated, patent-pending design that auto-locks the bridge and tailpiece in place without the need for tools.
The Epiphone Limited Edition Genesis Deluxe Pro is loaded up with a ProBucker 2 in the neck position, and a ProBucker 3 in the bridge. Both are constructed with Alnico II magnets, to offer the same warm tone, sparkling high end and a solid low end as the original PAF humbuckers that they emulate, and the ProBucker 3 is slightly overwound for the extra edge needed in lead work.
On top of the classic humbucker tones on offer, the Epiphone Genesis Deluxe Pro also offers coil tapping on both the rhythm and lead pickups for additional single-coil sounds.
