Epiphone Sheraton-II Pro
Epiphone Joe Pass Emperor-II Pro
Not content to let Gibson Memphis have all the fun, Epiphone has updated two of its own most popular archtops for 2015: the Sheraton-II Pro and Joe Pass Emperor-II Pro.
The Sheraton-II Pro adds Epiphone's new coil-splittable ProBucker humbuckers - a ProBucker-2 in the neck and hotter ProBucker-3 in the bridge - to the legendary thinline format, as well as a Graph Tech NuBone XL nut.
Elsewhere, the Sheraton-II Pro features a laminated maple construction, 60s SlimTaper C-profile neck and LockTone bridge/tailpiece setup.
The Joe Pass Emperor-II Pro offers similar upgrades, again pairing Epiphone's new ProBucker pickups - which can also be coil-split - with a Graph Tech NuBone XL nut.
Spec-wise, the Emperor-II Pro packs a laminated flame maple construction, a 60s SlimTaper C-profile neck, plus a stunning 'Vintage Scroll' trapeze tailpiece and old-school floating rosewood bridge.
Both guitars are available now for £529. Head over to Epiphone for more info.
