1960s Epiphone (USA) Newport EBS.
Guitars made in the Kalamazoo plant in the USA are extremely well known for being of top quality, exceeding many of today, and this is a fine example. They were made to the same quality and specs as the 60s Gibsons, built alongside them at the same factory. This is no exception to the rarity and build-quality of these 60s Epiphone’s.

It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels.
