What we say:

At A Glance:

The Epiphone 1942 Banner J-45 in Vintage Sunburst, delivers classy looks and the exceptional performance Epiphone have become known for. One striking and notable design choice is the classic Gibson "open book" headstock, a feature many have been crying out for over the years! Combined with the high performance specs such as solid mahogany back & sides, the solid Thermally Aged Red Spruce, and even the LR Baggs electronics, this guitar has it all. Superb performance, tone, and looks.

Features We Love:

Open Book Headstock

Finally! A feature many have cried out for on Epiphone guitars is here, a genuine Gibson "Open Book" headstock. Not only does this deliver an air of quality and class, but it reinforces the Gibson brand standing behind Epiphone, and a commitment to delivering quality guitars for players of all levels and budgets.

Solid Woods

Epiphone haven't skimped here, this guitar features solid woods all round. The classic solid mahogany back and sides deliver the distinctive midrange punch that Epiphone and Gibson acoustics are known for. The Solid Thermally Aged Red Spruce top delivers a sound that is played in and ready to sing along with you.

LR Baggs VTC

Just like the woods Epiphone have gone all out on the electronics. Whether you're an avid live performer or it's only on occasion that you plug your acoustic in you'll always sound great with world class electronics at your back.
