Overview

Epiphone presents the new Inspired by "1966" Century electric guitar, a faithful reissue of the classic thinline all-hollowbody archtop featuring the Epiphone P-90 PRO single-coil pickup.

Historic Epiphone Century Story
In Epiphone history, the “Century” name goes all the way back to the 1930s big band era, when the “House of Stathopoulo” was making some of the best archtops ever made. And when Epiphone merged with Gibson and moved its productions to Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1957, the Century was reborn as a popular thinline archtop, similar to a Casino or a “335” but with a slightly smaller body and a single P-90 pickup.

A Modern Archtop Inspired by “1966”
The new Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century hollowbody thinline archtop revives the mid-60s design prized by collectors for their comfortable, lightweight body with neck joint at the 14th fret and warm, woody tone. The laminated maple body features a maple top and both the top and back have ivory colored single layer binding. The mahogany neck has a rounded “C” shape and a 24.75” scale with a simple, but elegant, rosewood fingerboard with pearloid “Dot” inlays, 20 medium frets and an original nylon nut. A 1960s-era Replica Blue Soundhole Label can be seen through the upper f-hole. The white and black layered pickguard has a classic '60s-era "E”.

New P-90 PRO Pickup
The Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century is powered by a single-coil P-90 PRO pickup, recognized around the world as the most versatile and expressive single coil pickup available. Just like originals P-90s, the Epiphone P-90 PRO is an extremely sensitive pickup that easily bends to a player's unique touch. With its distinctive growl and wide tonal range, it's great for rock and roll, pop, jazz, country or anything you want to throw at it. The P-90 PRO features 18% nickel silver covers designed and tooled from the ground up with new bobbins manufactured to historic dimensions, Elektrisola magnet wire, sand-cast Alnico V magnets, and pole shoes manufactured using correct alloy. And for you sticklers to detail, Epiphone P-90 PROs also have tin-plated brass base plates like those used on '50s and '60s-era Gibson P-90 pickups. Controls are simple Master and Tone knobs.

Solid Hardware
The Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century includes legendary Wilkinson Vintage 3-in-a-row machine heads with plastic ivory buttons with a 14:1 tuning ratio that are mounted on a Historic Sloped Dovewing headstock with a gold Epiphone logo. The dual action truss rod has '60s-era black "Bullet” cover with a Vintage "E" in white. The floating adjustable Rosewood bridge is supported by a traditional “Trapeze” style tailpiece. The “1966” Century comes strung at the factory with D'Addario strings.
