Description

Details

The Epiphone Limited Edition Peter Frampton 1964 Texan Electro Acoustic Guitar resurrects the classic model that was owned by Frampton himself. Design in collaboration with the legendary musician, the guitar adheres as closely to the original as possible and is limited to a run of just 500 models. Each guitar is supplied with an Epiphone certificate of authenticity and limited lifetime warranty.

Classic "1964" Texan

The Texan that Frampton purchased in 1968 is the model he has written many a classic song with including "Baby I Love Your Way". This rendition has superseded that model as Frampton's go to touring guitar. Borrowing from the original design, the body is shaped with a rounded upper bout that extends through to a larger lower bout with slender waist. The back and sides are crafted using mahogany to establish a rich tonal foundation. The soundboard is built using solid spruce, which is a highly resonant wood that projects the timbre of the guitar brilliantly. The faded vintageburst finish is complemented by 3-ply ivory/black/ivory binding around the top with a protective coating of gloss retaining the vibrancy of the finish for as long as possible.

Stable yet responsive neck

Hand-fitted to the body with glued-in reinforcement is a sturdy mahogany neck, which is shaped to a traditional 1960's SlimTaper C-profile that is a joy to glide along. The generous 25.5-inch scale length allows each string to resonate with impunity for a vigorous energy. Paired with the neck is a pau ferro fingerboard, which is home to 20 medium-jumbo frets that are home to pearloid "parallelogram" position inlays to guide your way in style. The 12-inch fingerboard radius lends itself beautifully to the smooth playability of the Texan, encouraging smooth transitions between frets and across strings for a lightning fast feel.

L.R. Baggs Electronics

In keeping with Peter Frampton's preferences, Epiphone have equipped the "1964" Texan with the L.R. Baggs EAS-VTC system, which pairs a soundhole pickup with a flexible film sensor pickup in the saddle. Between the pickups they capture a full-spectral image of the Texan's rich acoustic timbre for accurate representation when plugged in. The EAS-VTC captures the soundboard's movements during performances for immaculate articulation and impressive clarity. There are soundhole mounted controls for master volume and tone, as well as a built-in Low Frequency filter. All this is powered by a 9-volt battery.

Gig-ready hardware

The headstock of the "1964" Texan is home to the same Schaller M6 machine heads that Frampton employs on his customised vintage '64 Texan, which uphold tuning integrity with peerless precision. Neck and body strap buttons allow you to perform seated or standing with ease. The headstock is shaped to a traditional Epiphone "sloped dovewing" with bullet-shaped truss rod cover and vintage "E". The imitation tortoise pickguard is adorned with a foil "E". The soundhole label is replica vintage rectangular blue featuring "Model: FT-79" with Frampton's original serial number "205898". The rear of the headstock includes a sequential serial number along with a "2018" edition logo.
