roy orbison epiphone guitar

Epiphone Guitar announced the release of the Limited Edition Roy Orbison 12-String Signature Acoustic model. Produced in cooperation with the legendary singer/songwriter Roy Orbison’s estate, the model is based upon Roy’s own 1962 Epiphone “Bard” 12-string acoustic guitar. Orbison used his original Epiphone acoustic to write and perform many of his most well-known songs including perhaps his biggest hit, “Oh, Pretty Woman.”

Legendary Instrument
A faithful reproduction of the 1962 Bard, this rich sounding 12-string features a solid spruce top with hand-scalloped bracing, a solid mahogany back, a rosewood 12-string bridge and vintage tuners. As an added touch of authenticity, Epiphone adds the a replica of the original blue rectangular sound hole label used during the famous Kalamazoo, MI years.

For this limited edition release, the back of the guitar’s headstock includes a replica of Roy Orbison’s signature and the notation for the first measure of the famous song’s introduction riff. Also included is a hard case with Roy’s signature and “sunglass” icon on it, a certificate of authenticity hand signed by Barbara Orbison and Roy’s son Roy Orbison Jr., a black and white photo of Roy with his original Epiphone Bard 12-string, a sunglass lapel pin and a copy of the “Oh Pretty Woman” sheet music. The certificate and photo come in a leatherette presentation binder.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus
Flamed Maple top. 2 humbuckers.

The Les Paul guitar is synonymous with Rock and Roll. No other guitar gives you the power, the sustain and the sound of a Les Paul. If it’s got Les Paul’s signature on the headstock, it’s the real thing… Accept no substitutes! Authorized by Gibson USA!

Feature:
This guitar has everything you need. A full stack of tone and volume controls, dual hum buckers, a set neck and an extremely nice finish. Looks awesome!!

For the price range, the cosmetics are very nice; the color and texture of the cherry flame finish looks really cool! The only minor things that occurred were with the pickup toggle switch and the strap lock post near the neck; these are common problems that occur even with Gibson’s. Both were easily fixed by using epoxy to affix the strap post back in place, and taking off the toggle switch and re-soldering it; both are fine now without any further problems. The pickups are factory stock Gibson PAF’s and they sound great; I’d never replace them unless they went out. You would tested both pickups on an output meter and they were “hot”, peaking at 15; that’s pretty good (and loud) for stock pickups! Click here for more features!

Quality:
The quality of the electronics can be improved on this guitar to level it with competition.
Sounds like a much more expensive guitar. Very clean when distortion is off, sounds really great when heavy distortion is on. Great with effects, sounds better than indie’s,  rock, fenders.

Sound:
It sounds pretty good right out of the box, but the suggestion may you would strongly replacing the strings and taking it for a professional setup, it makes a big difference. The wood is great, and you can get good tone from it, there are better Les Paul, with better wood and pickups for more money, but this should satisfy all players who don’t have extra money to throw around. Your guitar teacher will very impress with this guitar.

Value:
Best guitar on the market for the money.  Well worth the price compared to Gibson Les Paul. Check latest price!

Desirability:
Everyone who sees this baby wants to pick up and play it. Cause this is beautiful color (Wine Red), excellent finish.

Ease of Use:
This guitar is very playable it has a great action on it and the neck is perfect. It’s easy to get great sounds. But for beginners so a little hard work because once you’ve tried this you can’t adapt to crappy guitars.

Overall:
Great guitar, good price, nice craftsmanship, good sound, good looks, and for having fun!!! Playing in a band a little more serious about your music get the real Epiphone Les Pauls sound good look good can’t go wrong with them!
