Summer NAMM 2018: Epiphone returns with new Les Paul and Dot electrics, plus updated travel acoustics and ukuleles

LP Tribute ‘Prizm’ and Limited Edition Dot Deluxe headline new range

SUMMER NAMM 2018: Epiphone is back with a fair few launches this year - it’s good to see the firm shows no sign of slowing down following parent company Gibson’s application for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this year.

New additions include the head-turning Les Paul Tribute ‘Prizm’, tasty Dot Deluxe, a pair of travel acoustics and two new tenor ukuleles, which pay homage to the Les Paul and Hummingbird.

There are a whole load of new finishes, too, and Epiphone has more info on those. For now, here’s the lowdown on those new and updated models…
