First introduced in 1959, the Wilshire became one of Epiphone's most popular solid body guitars. With its deep, symmetrical cutaways, classic cherry stain, and comfy mahogany neck, the Wilshire won the hearts of players worldwide. The Epiphone Wilshire P-90 pays tribute to those early-year models, packing in many of the same features that made it an instant classic.
Sporting a solid mahogany body, this guitar delivers a rich tone with deep lows, punchy mids, and excellent sustain. Its glued-in "C" shaped mahogany neck feels nice and comfortable, and its laurel fingerboard plays with a buttery-smooth response. Players will particularly love this model's PRO P-90 Soapbar pickups that respond incredibly well to your playing. Play softly, and they'll project a sweet, sparkling tone. Dig in, and these P-90s will churn out an aggressive snarl that's great for rock 'n' roll leads.
Complete with ivory button Epiphone Deluxe tuning machines, a butterfly tortoiseshell pickguard, and a reduced-sized Kalamazoo headstock, the Wilshire P-90 is perfect for players seeking a top-notch vintage-inspired Epiphone.
