    It is beautiful.

    I really like the Epiphone Wilshire and have blogged several time about vintage and reissue Wilshire guitars. Notably just today about an amazing 12-string Wilshire from 1966!

    I think this white version of the re-issue is a nice homage to those vintage models out there.

    Man, that’s a beauty, but it’s a shame there’s not a mid-priced Wilshire out there. An import version of this guitar, or better yet a mini-humbucker and batwing headstock, would be nice.

    I actually already own one of those! It’s a great guitar. Decent build quality and finish for the money. It also plays well and stays in tune. Lifeless pickups, but I’m about to swap out the pickups for some humbucker sized P90s. I still wish it was a bit more historically accurate.

    I love the old Wilshire/Crestwood/Coronets. It would be great to see more of them. Maybe if these US version do well we’ll see some trickle down to a mid-priced model.

    Keep up the good work.

    Yeah, a non-usa made Wilshire with p90’s is what I hoping to one day see. 2-3 grand is way outta my reach.

    Yeah, why don’t you produce more of your own solidbody models from the Fifties and Sixties in affordable MIC-versions? That would be fantastic!

    Hey, and while I’m at it: more P-90-equipped guitars in affordable formats, pleeeeeeeeze! How about a Pete Townshend G-400 Special with a large pickguard, P-90s and a compensated wrap-around bridge. I would buy one – today!
