The Epiphone CE Coupe Solid body Electro Classical Guitar in Antique Natural resurrects the legendary model for modern players to fall in love with. The built-in Shadow Panoramic pickup system translates the acoustic timbre beautifully, the diminuitive size makes it ideal for buskers and touring guitarists. The preamp also includes both an Aux input for integrating an MP3 player and a headphone output for silent practise.
Elegant Coupe body
The Coupe benefits from the best of both worlds, boasting a chambered body that generates a rich timbre with solid body power. Thanks to the ingenious design of the Coupe, you are afforded a smooth output without the unwanted feedback at high levels. The back and sides are built using mahogany, which generates a stirring midrange character with enviable warmth. Paired with this is a select spruce top that makes the perfect soundboard due to its ability to resonate freely. The top is protected by a coating of gloss, whilst the back is afforded a smooth satin finish. The single-cutaway enables the fretting hand to reach the highest frets with ease.
Comfortable neck design
Joined to the body is a solid mahogany neck, which is carved to a 1960's SlimTaper D-profile to create a substantial yet comfortable fit in the hand. The dovetail joint is reinforced using glue to maximise stability for reassurance as you perform. The 1.81-inch width Graphtech nut is slightly smaller than a standard full-size classical guitar, making it easier to play for those who aren't quite used to the width of a classical guitar. Paired with the neck is a luxurious ebony fingerboard, which is home to 19 medium-sized frets that are begging to be explored. The 14-inch radius provides a flatter surface for you to hone your technique on, allowing you to execute elaborate performances with finesse. The nylon string setup is far more forgiving than steel strings for those who are getting to grips with the instrument. The truss rod can be adjusted at the sound hole to ensure a flawless performance every time.
The Epiphone CE Coupe is equipped with a Shadow Panoramic SH-148-HD pickup system, which affords separate panning and EQ settings for the first and last three strings, giving you the ability to finely craft your tone with incredible precision. The preamp also features and Aux input for connecting an external sound source, as well as a headphone output so that you can practise using your gig-ready setup via headphones so as not to disturb others. The built-in chromatic tuner includes a 7-segment display plus a low-battery indicator to ensure that you don't run out mid-gig.
The Epiphone CE Coupe Solidbody Electro Classical Guitar in Antique Natural is equipped with gold premium classic tuning machines with an impressive 16:1 tuning ratio. The ebony bridge with bone saddle optimise intonation and sustain throughout every performance to ensure that you are on top of your game. As with all Epiphones, the CE Coupe includes Epiphone's Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.
