Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century Archtop
Historic mid 60s archtop featuring the new P-90 PRO™ single coil pickup

Epiphone presents the Inspired by “1966” Century electric guitar, a faithful reissue of the classic thinline all-hollowbody archtop featuring the new Epiphone P-90 PRO™ single-coil pickup. The “1966” Century is available in both a Cherry and Vintage Sunburst Aged Gloss Finish.

Historic Epiphone Century Story

In Epiphone history, the “Century” name goes all the way back to the 1930s big band era, when the “House of Stathopoulo” was making some of the best archtops ever made. And when Epiphone merged with Gibson and moved its productions to Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1957, the Century was reborn as a popular thinline archtop, similar to a Casino or a “335” but with a slightly smaller body and a single P-90 pickup.
