Epiphone by Gibson Wildkat Archtop with Bigsby Tremolo - Gorgeous Antique Natural Finish

The Epiphone Wildkat smaller-body, semi-hollow guitar is a true Epiphone original. Featuring a Bigsby™ B70 Vibrato, P-90 dogear classics, and Grover® 18:1 machine heads. The finish is antique natural with a zebra pattern back that is as beautiful as the front.
….and then there is the sound of the P-90 …..

First introduced in the early 1950s, Gibson’s legendary P90 single coil pickup produced a raw powerful tone that helped define the blues and rock and roll in their formative years. Today, the P90’s traditional combination of high output and brilliant tone is still considered a favorite among many top musicians. Known by such familiar nicknames as the “Soapbar” and the “Cobalt,” the P90 still cuts through any type of music, all while displaying amazing tonal sensitivity for everything from blues and rock to mellow jazz riffs.

I love these guitars…. I get them when I can….. this is not common, for us, so get one while you can.

Refurbished Instruments

In addition to recovering, rebuilding, and refurbishing intermediate priced guitars and folk instruments from the last 30 years, we also sell factory authorized refurbished instruments, sourced through one of the largest instrument recyclers in the US. These are a great deal for anyone that wants a quality like new instrument with a limited budget. You don’t get an equivalent you get an original.

This is a professionally refurbished instrument. They mostly come from the factory, or from large dealers. Some instruments have flaws, like a paint glitch, while some need simple repairs, not visible, like repairing a lifting bridge or fretboard. Some have a repair that is visible but makes the instrument good again, like an acoustic with a cracked soundboard that needs repaired. Sometimes it gets rejected because the color is not quite right, or it was sold with accessories, and the factory ran out of accessories.

Unlike a new instrument, or typical used one, this instrument was completely checked out, and tested by factory authorized skilled Instrument Technicians (Luthiers). After it was inspected at the refurbisher by experts, then repaired and/or verified as “like new”, it was distributed to dealers like me, to get to smart customers like you. You get a great, as-new instrument, at a great price, less than discounted new! Why buy a cheaper knock-off when you can have a Genuine Epiphone by Gibson for the same investment.

If there is any visible repair or flaw on any instrument we sell, we note it here.

This instrument has no known issues or repairs. It works and sounds great….

By law, since it was handled after it was released, the instrument is marked as “Used” by the Refurbisher with a light stamp on the headstock, and assigned a new sticker serial number.

I offer my instruments at a fair price, but open the option for a best offer. I always reject lowball offers, but always consider honest ones. Try it; I may be in a good mood today!
