Overview

Featuring a Kinman Noiseless "Sweet Neck" P-90, a reissue of the '60s era compensated floating Rosewood bridge with brass wheels, a James Bay “Hat Man” headstock logo, Wilkinson Deluxe machine heads, USA made “CTS” 500K pots, and a reissue of an Epiphone '60s era hard case plus a hand-signed photo and custom strap.

Set Time Machine to 1966
The Ltd. Ed. James Bay Signature Century Outfit is both a time machine to 1966 and an exact replica of Bay’s customized stage and studio guitar. The Signature Century’s Laminated Maple body top, back, and sides measure to the exact profile of Bay’s original which was made at the historic Epiphone and Gibson factory Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1966.

Bay’s new Signature Epiphone Century is finished in a Cherry gloss finish with cream binding on the body top and back. The Mahogany neck is glued to the body at the 14th fret with a Mortise and Tenon joint and has the identical “C” profile and dimensions and Delrin ivory colored nut found on Bay’s stage guitar. The Rosewood fingerboard has Mother of Pearl “Dot” inlays, a 25.5 in. scale length, and 20 medium frets. The historic Sloped Dovewing headstock has a '60s era Epiphone script logo in gold along with a James Bay Hat Man insignia. Bay’s original Century serial number--385143—is laser inscribed on the back.

Kinman Custom No Hum P-90 Pickup
James Bay customized his new Epiphone Signature Century archtop with the same hand-wound pickup he uses in his vintage Century, a Kinman "Sweet Neck" P-90 Hx Noiseless Single-Coil. Kinman pickups are world renown for their incredible sonic palate and “no hum” performance. Bay choose the Kinman for its classic P-90 tone and the additional reduction of hum necessary when playing the world’s biggest outdoor festivals and indoor stages. The Kinman "Sweet Neck" P-90 Hx is the only P-90 style pickup currently in production that maintains the dynamic range and tonal characteristics of prized vintage Gibson P-90 pickups while providing hum free operation. The new Century’s Master Volume and Tone controls have Black Top Hat knobs with metal inserts and USA made CTS potentiometers.

Historic Hardware
The Ltd. Ed. James Bay Signature Century Outfit comes with vintage style 3-on-a-side Wilkinson Vintage machine heads with a 14:1 tuning radio and plastic Ivory buttons. The period correct long white pickguard has a raise metal “E” and the ¼” output jack is made by Switchcraft. Epiphone has also recreated the original compensated Floating Rosewood Bridge and brass adjustment wheels found on Bay’s vintage 1966 Century along with the nickel tailpiece.

The Ltd. Ed. James Bay Signature Century Outfit is set up at the factory with world famous D’Addario strings and comes with a '60s style hard case along with a Certificate of Authenticity, a James Bay photo hand-signed by Bay, and a recreation of Bay’s custom homemade strap.
