Show Me the Way To An Epiphone
Frampton purchased his original Texan in 1968 while recording with Humble Pie. “I loved Steve Marriott’s guitar which was an Epiphone Frontier,” recalled Frampton. “I asked our guitar tech if he could find me one like it and he came back with the Texan. And I played it and loved it. Mine was made only 3 months apart from Paul McCartney’s in 1964. He wrote “Yesterday” on his and I wrote “Baby I Love Your Way” on mine!” Frampton’s original 1964 Texan has been his main songwriting guitar ever since and has been a constant companion on the road until it was retired in favor of his new Ltd. Ed. “1964” Texan. “I played the prototype on a British TV show and it sounded incredible. I’m so thrilled and honored.”
