A sharp re-creation of Epiphone's classic thinline hollowbody.

The 50th Anniversary "1962" Sorrento E452TDN Outfit features a laminated maple top and body, a mahogany neck with a 1960s SlipTaper™ profile, a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, 20 medium jumbo frets, historically accurate binding and tortoise style pickguard, and Gibson USA mini-humbuckers. Like the Casino, the Sorrento is a completely hollow design that makes for a lightweight guitar with a wide range of tones.

The Tune-o-matic™ floating bridge has a rosewood bridge base with a reissue of the original classic trapeze tailpiece. The Sorrento's electronics are top-notch Epiphone quality with CTS potentiometers, a ¼" non-rotating output jack, and gold TopHat controls to go along with Wilkinson™ Vintage Style machine heads with small buttons and a 14:1 tuning ratio. The dovewing headstock has a classic Epiphone metal logo badge and there is also a historically accurate "blue rectangular" Epiphone label. The "1962" Sorrento comes with a period-correct hard case and a 1962 Collection Certificate of Authenticity.

All three of these Epiphone classics will be issued in limited quantities of 1,962 pieces.

All of the "1962" Collection instruments were designed by Epiphone luthiers who worked from the best examples of vintage originals found in Epiphone's own collection in Nashville. Measure for measure, the "1962" Collection recreates the look, sound, and feel of the originals first produced at the Gibson & Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1962, the same factory that produced the Les Paul Standard, the SG, and the 335. Includes case.

  • What a surprise!

    As reviewed by Warren on 2/14/2015

    I bought my Sorrento in Nov. 2014. I had no idea it would very quickly become my main axe. It's beautiful, very well crafted and much lighter than my Les Paul. The Gibson Mini-humbuckers are really great. You can dial in jazz and chicken pickin', but the biggest surprise is how it handles distortion and fuzz. This thing rocks. Limited to 1962 built they won't be available forever. I'm VERY glad I bought mine.

  • Very impressed with this.

    As reviewed by g scott on 11/25/2014

    This guitar punches well above its weight. The fretboard is flat and the frets are well finished and flat. The build quality is outstanding. Fit and finish are well above average for an Epiphone. It's also surprisingly light and fairly thin front to back. Well balanced and not neck heavy. The dual Gibson Mini Humbuckers are great for anything from twangy country pickin, to jazz, to hard rock. Add in the high quality CTS pots and you've got a really solid little hollow body guitar. It was real easy to get the intonation set on it and lower the action. Holds tune REALLY well. Sounds quite good without an amp, good for late night picking etc. I can't say enough about how fun it is to play, and how easy it is as well. If you're looking for a country / hazz / rock machine, take a look, this thing plays and sounds great!
