This Epiphone Wilshire was made by Gibson in the USA in 1961. This is a great playing and sounding guitar. With 2 p-90 pickups and a thin body the Wilshire is similar to the SG Special, but superior in that it has a tune-o-matic bridge/tailpiece setup. This guitar is in nice shape for its age, although there are dings and dents and finish scratches. There are no breaks or repairs. The tuners, bridge and tailpiece are not original. the other parts are original. This is a very early version with the bikini logo. It comes with a non original case.
