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.
