Though their feet are stuck firmly in the future of guitar-making, Epiphone look back to the '70s with this modernised take on a venerable shredder's classic. The DC Pro is Epiphone's first new guitar announced for 2019, and with it set to launch in five equally beautiful finishes (Black Cherry, Faded Cherry Burst, Midnight Ebony, Mojave Fade and Wild Ivy), it's sure to catch some looks when it's showcased at this year's NAMM festival.
Taking its visual cues from Epiphone's inimitable Del Rey Double Cut design, which the Gibson offshoot popularised in the '70s, the DC Pro rocks a AAA flame maple ‘veneer’ top, mahogany body and neck (the latter clocking in at 24.75 inches) and a Pau Ferro fretboard.
In terms of specs, the DC Pro features coil-tappable ProBucker humbuckers, Epiphone's propietary LockTone
Tune-o-matic bridge, a treble-bleed circuit and Grover 18:1 ratio tuners. That's all alongside an incredibly impressive spate of tech that's aimed to suit both home and concert guitarists, packed into a glued-in, 'Custom C' shaped profile.
