The Min-ETune system mounted on Epiphone guitars
Epiphone installs the Gibson Min-ETune automatic tuner system on two Les Paul Classic-T and FT-350SCE guitars.
The Min-ETune system has been available on many Gibson models since late 2012 but Epiphone waited a bit longer before using it on its instruments. You can now enjoy the automated mechanical tuning system on guitars below $1000.
The Min-ETune system includes 12 different tunings, including Drops, and you can store custom tunings.
Les Paul fans can get the Min-ETune system on the new Classic-T, a classic Les Paul shape with mahogany body, maple veneer top and 3-piece maple set neck. The guitar is equipped with a pair of new CeramicPRO pickups, which sounds reminds the first Les Paul guitars of the 50s. You can choose for this model between three Black Cherry, Midnight Ebony and Midnight Sapphire finishes.
If you like big bodies better, the FT-350SCE is an acoustic-electric guitar with a NanoFlex pickup and a Shadow Performer preamp. The guitar features a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides and a 3-piece maple neck. Epiphone introduces on this model the SpeedNut, a nut described as harder than bone and more slippery than Teflon, for easier string vibration and tension. The FT-350SCE is available in four Antique Natural, Ebony, Violin Burst and Wine Red finishes.
Both guitars will be detailed proximately on www.epiphone.com.
