Epiphone press release
Epiphone Ltd. Edition “Union Jack” Sheraton Outfit
Another nouveau classic coming in 2014 is the Ltd. Edition “Union Jack” Sheraton Outfit in an Alpine White finish. Epiphone celebrates the 20th anniversary of Oasis’ debut, Definitely, Maybe with its own “Union Jack” Sheraton inspired by Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher’s hand-painted original.
In 2013, Epiphone celebrated its 140th anniversary as the working musician’s—and student musician’s—favorite instrument maker.
Now, Epiphone continues the celebration by announcing a sneak preview of nine exciting new models slated for summer 2014. Included in the new models are new designs like the Casino Coupe, the LP Express, the return of the Ltd. Ed. G-1275 doubleneck, as well as 2014 anniversary reissues including the historic “1939” Century Amp, and artist signature models from legendary bassist Jack Casady and blues hero Joe Bonamassa.
Celebrating our anniversary last year inspired us to make 2014 a very special year for fans,” said Epiphone President Jim Rosenberg. “Epiphone has an instrument for every style and every level of musician, and our 2014 preview offers a taste of what will be our best year yet. We can’t wait to see these instruments in the hands of our players.”
