Epiphone Ltd. Ed. TV Pelham Blue Collection

Epiphone Ltd. Ed. TV Pelham Blue Collection: Epiphone classics in a cool blue light

The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. TV Pelham Blue Collection features six of Epiphone's most popular classics in a beautiful TV Pelham Blue color finish. Pelham Blue was first seen on Epiphone models in the '60s, primarily as a custom color, so it's rarely found on vintage models today. And originals are priced out of reach for most guitarists. But the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed. TV Pelham Blue Collection brings back that timeless finish in six fan-favorite models including the Les Paul Custom PRO, the SG Custom with Maestro tremolo, the ES-355, the ES-339 PRO, the Firebird Studio, and the EB-3 bass. And all of these modern day classics feature the same great pickups, unbeatable hardware, and lifetime guarantee you expect from Epiphone.


Epiphone Ltd. Ed. TV Pelham Blue Collection

The TV Pelham Blue Collection kicks off with the Ltd. Ed. TV Pelham Blue Les Paul Custom PRO, which features a traditional mahogany Les Paul® body with a mahogany veneer top. The 24.75" scale 1960's SlimTaper™ profile neck is glued to the body using a mortise and tenon neck joint. The TV Pelham Blue Les Paul comes with Epi's custom-wound Epiphone Pro-Bucker humbucker pickups and includes coil-tapping for each pickup along with Grover® Rotomatic™ 18:1 ratio machine heads and a LockTone™ tune-o-matic bridge and tailpiece.
