Epiphone Limited Edition John Lee Hooker 100th Anniversary Zephyr Electric Guitar - Natural

Epiphone

This guitar was born to boogie.

Epiphone celebrates the 100th birthday of iconic bluesman and "King of the Boogie Woogie," John Lee Hooker, with this limited-edition reissue of Hooker's classic, rare 1961 Epiphone Zephyr. His main guitar, both live and in the studio, for over a decade, it was one of only 45 Zephyrs ever made. This reissue, loaded with Epiphones newly designed ProBucker mini-humbuckers and boasting Wilkinson Deluxe tuners with ivory buttons, captures the vibe of the original, but with a slightly more modern sound that makes it great for Americana/roots, soul and classic R&B as well as blues. Includes certificate of authenticity and vintage-style hard case.
