NAMM 2019: Epiphone announces DC PRO electric guitar
A contemporary take on the brand’s classic Del Rey Double Cut design.
Epiphone has plumbed its archives to design the new-for-2019 DC PRO. The guitar is inspired by the brand’s 70s-era Del Rey Double Cut, pairing modern features with premium cosmetics.
The first thing you’ll notice about the DC PRO is its AAA flame maple veneer top, which sits on a mahogany body, that’s available in five eye-catching translucent finishes. Other tonewoods include a custom C-shaped mahogany neck and a 12-inch-radius pau ferro fretboard with classy pearloid-and-abalone inlays.
Things get interesting in the pickup department. The guitar sports a pair of Epiphone ProBucker humbuckers – with coil-splitting functions – and a treble bleed circuit that maintains tone clarity even at lower volumes.
Other hardware components include Grover 18:1 tuners, a LockTone Tune-o-Matic bridge and a Stopbar tailpiece – all in nickel.
Available in Black Cherry, Faded Cherry Burst, Midnight Ebony, Mojave Fade, and Wild Ivy finishes. More information at epiphone.com.
