Wilshire P-90s

From its first appearance in 1959 the Wilshire has been one of Epiphone's most successful original solid body electric guitar designs. The Wilshire P-90 brings back many of the features of the earliest Wilshire models including the symmetrical double-cutaway mahogany body with dual PRO P-90 Soapbar pickups, three on a side reduced sized Kalamazoo headstock with Epiphone Bikini badge and ivory button Epiphone Deluxe tuning machines, and a butterfly tortoise shell pickguard with foil E logo. The Wilshire P-90 comes equipped with a glued-in mahogany neck with a medium C profile, Indian laurel fretboard with 12" radius and 22 medium jumbo frets, 2 volume and 2 tone controls and an Epiphone LockTone™ Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece, and is available in classic Cherry and Ebony finishes.

Extura Prophecy

The Epiphone Prophecy Extura combines the elegance of the Explorer™ with the improved upper fret access of the Futura in an Epiphone exclusive design. Upper fret access is further enhanced by the mahogany neck's modern contoured heel, while the mahogany body is capped with a stunning AAA flame maple veneer and thinner Aged Vintage Gloss "Tiger" finish. The SlimTaper™ asymmetrical mahogany neck features a 24 fret ebony fretboard with jumbo frets, Block and Triangle pearloid/abalone inlays with abalone selected to complement the body finish color, Grover® Locking Rotomatic® tuners, and a black Graph Tech® NuBone® nut. The Extura comes with brushed nickel hardware, and is equipped with a pair of proprietary Fishman® Fluence® pickups with three voicing options that are selected with the push/pull volume and tone controls - high gain, classic humbucker, and hum-free California-style single coil tones are all here. Optional EpiLite™ case available.

Gibson 1960 Les Paul 0 8145 is from the final year of the model’s original-production era, and likely from one of the later runs.

The story of 1960 Gibson Les Paul 0 8145—a ’burst with a nameplate and, now, a reputation.

These days it’s difficult to imagine any vintage Gibson Les Paul being a tough sell, but there was a time when 1960 ’bursts were considered less desirable than the ’58s and ’59s of legend—even though Clapton played a ’60 cherry sunburst in his Bluesbreakers days. Such was the case in the mid 1990s, when the family of a local musician who was the original owner of one of these guitars walked into Rumble Seat Music’s original Ithaca, New York, store with this column’s featured instrument.
