Title Me!

Epiphone has announced the release of the "Tak Matsumoto DC Standard Goldtop" exclusively for the Japan Market.

This guitar features a beautiful Double Cutaway Mahogany body with a glued-in Mahogany neck. Traditional Les Paul Standard "Trapezoid" Inlays in Abalone on a Rosewood fingerboard and a stunning "Gold-Top" finish combine to make this a beautiful guitar... but there's more to it than great looks!

At the heart of this new guitar are "Gibson USA Burstbucker 2" (Neck) and "Gibson USA Burstbucker 3" (Bridge) humbucking pickups. Made in the USA by Gibson, these pickups give guitarists a replica of the sound and tone from Gibson's original "Patent Applied For" pickups - the same pickups that give the '59 Les Paul Standard its legendary sound. BurstBuckers feature unpolished magnets and non-potted coils. Just like the originals, these reproduce the variations found among vintage Gibson humbuckers.

Other features include nickel hardware, vintage style tuners with "tulip" buttons, Epiphone PAF LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece and Epiphone's own StrapLocks.

Additionally, each "Tak Matsumoto Signature DC Standard" comes with a custom hard case featuring the "Tak Matsumoto" signature on it and a certificate of authenticity.
