Summary: Epiphone recreates a Gibson classic from the early days with all the looks, the sound, and the feel that made it one of the most loved guitars of all time. Two Alnico-V P-90 pickups and the body of mahogany will leave you charmed the minute you start to play. This Classic Goldtop is more than a gorgeous gold face. Its all-mahogany construction adds warmth to the bright sound of the 1950’s style Alnico-V P-90 pickups. The combination delivers bewitching tones. This Epiphone plays great up and down the neck and sounds even better.
