    Cool guitars, nice article too! Thanks Bandit, you always come up with cool shit buddy! :D

    I remember back then when lots of folks we’re talking about those Epis’,.....the ones that were made before Gibson acquired Epiphone. They were considered to be high quality, great playing guitars!

    I was never fortunate enough to able to play one of those, but I did play a couple of Epiphones that were made in the US by Gibson, before they sent the manufacturing of them overseas.

    This was back in the early 70s, and just everyone back then was of the opinion that they were every bit as good as Gibsons’.

    Gibson stopped making Epiphone guitars in the US around 1969 or 70

    Purshased a 62 Wilshire Gibson Custom Shop RI some years back & the headstock coating is lifting badly, cracks arround the neck it's been very well cared for, never gigged. Gibson has sabotaged the brand.

    Had a real Epiphone Wilshire from the early 60's.

    Paid $75.00 for it around 1980.

    Didn't stay in tune.

    It's long gone.
