Epiphone announces Limited Edition George Thorogood guitar

Guitar features ProBuckerTM P-90s, Wilkinson deluxe tuners, custom hard case and more

Epiphone, the leader in affordable professional instruments, proudly presents the Ltd. Ed. George Thorogood “White Fang” ES-125TDC Outfit, the premier signature guitar by blues legend George Thorogood. Featuring a vintage-inspired ES-125 hollowbody archtop in a Bone White finish with removable “Cobra” sticker, new ProBucker P-90 single-coil pickups, a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity, Custom Hard Case with “snake-skin” handle, and Wilkinson Deluxe Tuners.

The ES-125 thin-line hollowbody was first introduced in 1956 as a student guitar, but in George Thorogood’s hands, his rare, late 50’s two-pickup ES-125 was transformed into one of the most iconic instruments in American music.

“My new Epiphones are like riding a thoroughbred horse — you have to hold them back,” explains Thorogood. “You should have more to work with not less. That’s when it gets fun. I used to struggle with my old guitars backstage. Now, I can’t wait to get to the gig. Thanks, Epiphone!”

Thorogood and his band, George Thorogood & The Destroyers have sold over 15 million albums, built a classic catalog of hits, and played more than 8,000 ferocious live shows. See Thorogood and his Ltd. Ed. George Thorogood “White Fang” ES-125TDC Outfit live in action during George Thorogood & The Destroyers’ forthcoming North American tour, Good To Be Bad Tour: 45 Years Of Rock.

Epiphone Ltd. Ed. George Thorogood “White Fang” ES-125TDC Outfit Street Price $899.
