For sale: 1959 Epiphone century. This is a very rare guitar, produced just after the Gibson takeover. It was made in Kalamazoo, but has a New York pickup in the neck position. I don't know what the story is with the bridge p90, definitely not original. The neck has been well reset. The interplay between the creamy New York pickup and the bite of a p90 is just heavenly. This guitar has amazing action and intonation and the frets have plenty of life.  The he guitar is in really good shape given its sixty years as a player guitar.
