Modern Archtop with Historic Good Looks

Epiphone has enjoyed a reputation as one of early America's most celebrated archtop builders. The Epiphone De Luxe New Century has the look and feel of a well-loved historic instrument with modern tone and tuning advancements. A soundhole gives this guitar a fat, forward unplugged tone you can enjoy anywhere. And German-designed Shadow electronics deliver a lively acoustic tone into a PA, or a smooth hollowbody sound into a tube amp. The De Luxe New Century's ships with Historic reissue 18:1 tuners and features a historic mother-of-pearl Epiphone banner inlay.

Versatile tone for jazz clubs to coffee houses

An electronics complement from German pickup maker Shadow Electronics makes the Epiphone De Luxe New Century adaptable for impromptu acoustic shows to full jazz sets. Plug into a PA for a modern acoustic direct tone, or run into an amp and hear this archbox come to life with nothing less than Epiphone's near-century of archtop expertise.

Rounded C neck profile is comfortable and full

The De Luxe New Century's great-playing neck is made from five pieces of mahogany and maple. This construction promotes good warp resistance over time, and its medley of tonewoods represents the warmth and articulation Epiphone archtops are known for.
