Historic acoustic updated with Shadow™ electronics
Introducing the Ltd. Ed. “Inspired by 1964 Caballero, one of Epiphone’s oldest and most classic designs. Now updated with Shadow™ electronics!
The Epiphone Caballero was one of the first new "modern" acoustic guitars designed and built at Epiphone’s new home in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the late 50s when it joined forces with Gibson Brands. The Caballero was a unique design for Epiphone and fit right in with the times as the folk music era was taking off. Though the Caballero stayed in production through the next decade and even longer as the FT-130, the 1964 Caballero in particular has long been a player’s and collector’s favorite.
Now, Epiphone celebrates one its most beloved vintage designs with the Ltd. Ed. “Inspired by” 1964 Caballero that brings all of the acoustic guitar’s best features into profile for a stunning reissue of the Epi classic. The Caballero’s small body belies a powerful, full toned “singer’s guitar” that has a punchy midrange that's perfect for both recording and for stage.
While dreadnaught style acoustic guitars often steal the spotlight, the Caballero has been a guitar connoisseur’s favorite precisely for its compact size which makes both picked runs and driving rhythms stand out with a sharp, focused tone that’s never boomy. And now the Caballero can plug in anywhere with the Shadow™ ePerformer Preamp System and Shadow™ NanoFlex low impedance pickup system.
