The Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe also includes new P-90 PRO Single Coil pickups plus a 6-position Rotary VariTone.

Nashville, TN (May 15, 2015) -- Epiphone, the worldwide leader in classic and cutting edge professional instruments, is proud to introduce two new guitars to the Epiphone catalog – the Dobro Hound Dog M14 Metalbody and the return of the Epiphone legendary Blueshawk Deluxe. Both guitars will be available for Epiphone fans in spring 2015.

“The Dobro Hound Dog M14 and the Blueshawk Deluxe are perfect examples of what we do best at Epiphone,” said Epiphone President Jim Rosenberg, “It’s our mission to provide guitar players of all genres incredible style, sound and value.”


Dobro Hound Dog M14 Metalbody
Epiphone’s Dobro Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody guitar features an easy-to-play Round Neck and the renowned resonator style and sound that have been inspiring Dobro fans since the late 1920s. The body of the Dobro Hound Dog M-14 is made from Bell Brass with nickel plating and features a SlimTaper D-profile Mahogany neck for a rich and full tone that makes finger picking and sliding smooth and easy in all registers. Unlike hard-to-play vintage models, the new Dobro Hound Dog M-14 Metalbody features a dual action truss rod for quick and reliable intonation.

MSRP $999


Blueshawk Deluxe
Epiphone’s Blueshawk Deluxe is the long-awaited return of an original classic. The Blueshawk Deluxe was first introduced in the ‘90s and has been a connoisseur favorite ever since. The Blueshawk Deluxe features the upper bout curve and cutaway of a Les Paul, but with the semi-hollowbody design and small f-holes of an archtop. The result is one of the most versatile and distinctive guitars anywhere. The Epiphone Blueshawk Deluxe also includes new P-90 PRO Single Coil pickups plus a 6-position Rotary VariTone.

MSRP $832
