For over 50 years the Epiphone Texan guitar has been putting smiles on the faces of guitar players

When I made my way through the Epiphone USA set-up facility here in Nashville this morning I noticed that some of the crew were going through final QC and set-up procedures on a good number of Inspired by 1964 Texan’s, preparing to send them to dealers across the country. Man… what a great guitar! The history of this instrument alone is mind-boggling… when you consider that everyone from Paul McCartney to Peter Frampton to Noel Gallagher has used this guitar to write and record some of the most important pop/rock songs in history. But what really blows you away is when you hear this incredible instrument. For over 50 years the Texan has been putting smiles on the faces of guitar players… and it continued to do so this morning with Allen above.

We are about to feature 4 acoustic/electric guitars on our homepage… including the Inspired by 1964 Texan. You can check out the feature story now by following the link below. It has a lot of info about the Texan and even includes a short mp3 sound clip.


Have you ever played a Texan? If so what did you think… please click on the “COMMENT” link at the top of this post (or the form below) and let us know.

    I first heard about the Texan back when Peter Frampton played one on Baby I Love Your Way. It wasn’t until later I realized McCartney had played one on Ed Sullivan years earlier.

    I can remember playing my Uncle’s old Texan. Such a great sounding guitar and so great they will be releasing them again. Keep up the fantastic work!

    I just got one of these… maybe be the best $450 bucks Ive ever spent on musical gear. Something about the slope shoulders that really rings.
