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.

Gibson The Holy-Explorer (USA 2009 Limited Run Series)

Gibson The Holy Explorer

The first of the 2009 Limited Run Series guitars from Gibson USA
The neck on the Holy Explorer retains the traditional characteristics of the original Explorer neck – 24¾-inch scale, 22 frets, rosewood fingerboard and figured acrylic dot inlays. The Holy Explorer also sports a single volume control perfectly positioned for swells, and two of humbucker pickups.

The Holy Explorer features include six in-line mini Grover tuners, which deliver smooth tuning action and accuracy, Gibson’s traditional stop bar tailpiece and Tune-o-matic bridge, and a customized Limited Run Series certificate of authenticity and Gibson USA hardshell case with a white silkscreened logo. The new Holy Explorer is limited to just 350 guitars.

There’s just a single volume control, positioned for easy pinky-finger volume swells, and a three-way pickup selector — nothing superfluous to get in the way of you and your tone.

The Holy Explorer also retains its ancestor’s distinctive “drooping” headstock with six-in-line tuners, which in this case are Grover Mini tuners. The guitar is also fitted with a 1-11/16″-wide Corian nut and Gibson’s traditional stop bar tailpiece and Tune-o-matic bridge, which keeps everything firmly anchored and ready to wail.
