The Wilshire is a marvel,
I am a collector of beautiful guitars, and buying this guitar
it is a pleasure ..... cheap more?
Fantastic achievement, in all respects identical to the original, except perhaps
the number of pieces of wood mahogany body beautifully crafted.
I noticed that it was a guitar variable to another on the BODY of mine, 3X,
for two of the original.
The rest is identical in appearance to note that the mechanics can be changed to give it a more authentic look ..
in weight, it is identical 3kg.
I love its pure form, the handle is fine, a bit wide but well done, this is a beautiful violin.

The handle is easy, I find it as good as my 335 Gibson SG ... etc.
Quality is waiting for you ..
question? Epiphone realize how to price a guitar like this?
A Gibson SG has nothing more? and yet much more expensive ....


For my style of music, Blues, rock, great clean sound on my amp or saturated Kosh Jupiter.
With the original pickups, the sound is good, I find the grain of a guitar style Deluxe Gibson
Firebird .. etc, both Mimi Humbucker do their work, with its crystalline Gras, I love ..

But it is true that, over time, and the comparison with my Deluxe, yes still ....
I got tired a little flatness, power, and finally all ...

So I put a new version more authentic, a pair of Mini Humbucker TELSA OPUS 3 I urge suddenly, this guitar has become my favorite sound terrible, but happiness ....

With a little finishing work in violin (polishing varnish, change buttons, pickups)
she took her place among my most beautiful guitars .... and yet its prices?
What I hate is its position in the range, constrained by its pickups, its mechanical and small
details to make it an instrument of first prize.
she deserves better.
proof ....
All reviews are unanimous this is a great guitar and all points.


In 1957, Gibson purchased Epiphone and moved production Stathopoulo in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

A short time after the move, Epiphone began production of a new line of "Kalamazoo factory to design new creations ..
Gibson models are comparable in many many Epiphone models that were underestimated.

Many artists over the years have recognized the unique appeal of these guitars.
Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Kurt Cobain, Paul Gilbert and Steve Marriot are some artists who have embraced the tone and build quality of Kalamazoo Epiphones.

Wilshire is perhaps the rarest of these guitars and ironically, one of the best concept!
This production is a new beginning for Epiphone that carries a quality product + +

This recreation has a fantastic value for money, I recommend a Excellent.
It requires some changes to pickups a bit weak, but widely usable.

This is an excellent choice, a beautiful replica of myth Kalamazoo Epiphone.
Its manufacture "Indonesia" does not detract from its quality, this beautiful retro guitar and an Epiphone well,
I love .......

Eats great qualities is indisputable ..
