A vintage-inspired ES-125 hollowbody archtop with new ProBucker P-90 single-coil pickups.

Nashville, TN (May 30, 2019) -- Epiphone, the leader in affordable professional instruments, proudly presents the Ltd. Ed. George Thorogood “White Fang” ES-125TDC Outfit, the premier signature guitar by blues legend George Thorogood. Featuring a vintage-inspired ES-125 hollowbody archtop in a Bone White finish with removable “Cobra” sticker, new ProBucker P-90 single-coil pickups, a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity, Custom Hard Case with “snake-skin” handle, and Wilkinson Deluxe Tuners.

The ES-125 thin-line hollowbody was first introduced in 1956 as a student guitar, but in George Thorogood’s hands, his rare, late 50s two-pickup ES-125 was transformed into one of the most iconic instruments in American music. “My new Epiphones are like riding a thoroughbred horse--you have to hold them back,” explains Thorogood. “You should have more to work with not less. That’s when it gets fun. I used to struggle with my old guitars backstage. Now, I can’t wait to get to the gig. Thanks, Epiphone!”

Thorogood and his band, George Thorogood & The Destroyers have sold over 15 million albums, built a classic catalog of hits, and played more than 8,000 ferocious live shows. See Thorogood and his Ltd. Ed. George Thorogood “White Fang” ES-125TDC Outfit live in action during George Thorogood & The Destroyers’ forthcoming North American tour, “Good To Be Bad Tour: 45 Years Of Rock.” The “Good To Be Bad Tour: 45 Years Of Rock” tour continues Saturday, June 22 in Hinckley, MN, for all tour dates, visit: https://www.georgethorogood.com.

“Bad to the Bone” Classic ES-125: The Ltd. Ed. George Thorogood “White Fang” ES-125TDC Outfit is a full hollowbody archtop made in collaboration with George and Epiphone’s luthiers in Nashville. The “White Fang” features a Bone White finish and a removable “Cobra” sticker that is an exact replica of the decal on George’s personal customized ES-125. The “White Fang” is powered by new Epiphone P-90 PRO single-coil pickups, which recreate the tone of the first generation of P-90s invented by Gibson legend Seth Lover. The “White Fang” includes a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity and Custom Hard Case with “snake-skin” handle.

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
