US Made Epiphone Frontier

A Rare Epiphone Acoustic, Once Again Made in the USA! A great guitar manufactured in the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo from 1958 until 1970, after they took over Epiphone.

It has been available as a Masterbuilt model (made in the Far East) but now Gibson have decided to make it once again in the USA, handcrafted in Bozeman, Montana, by Gibson’s finest acoustic luthiers.

Featuring a solid Sitka spruce top and solid figured maple back and sides, Indian rosewood fretboard, traditional hand-scalloped X-bracing, gold-plated Gotoh Keystone tuners, the iconic “lariat and cactus” themed pickguard, and a 25.5” scale length for a powerful tone. It comes equipped with an L.R. Baggs VTC pickup, so it is stage and studio-ready, right out of the included hardshell case.

Available in Antique Natural and Frontier Burst. Street price c£3500
