Epiphone Announces The Release Of New 'Epiphone Tak Matsumoto DC Custom'

Epiphone Announces the Release of the New Epiphone "Tak Matsumoto Signature DC Custom"

Coming Out On Christmas Day Exclusively in Japan

Tokyo, Japan-December 18, 2009. Leading guitar maker Epiphone announces the release of the new "Epiphone Tak Matsumoto Signature DC Custom" available exclusively in Japan on December 25th 2009. Tak Matsumoto is one of the Japan's leading guitarists and a member of the popular rock band B'z.

Based on the popular model from Gibson's Custom Shop division, Epiphone created this new "Tak Matsumoto DC Custom" with not only outstanding playability, tone, exceptional looks and performance but also at a more affordable price point.

This guitar features a beautiful Double Cutaway Mahogany body with a glued-in Mahogany neck using a Long-Neck-Tenon (Deep Set) ultimately resulting in sweeter tone and longer sustain. Traditional Les Paul Custom "Split Diamond" Inlay on the multi-bound headstock and a gold metal trussrod cover featuring an engraved "Tak Matsumoto" name on it combined with a bound Rosewood fingerboard and multi-bound body makes it’s beautiful ebony finish even more attractive.

At the heart of this new guitar are "Gibson USA Burstbucker 2" (Neck) and "Gibson USA Burstbucker 3" (Bridge) humbucking pickups. Made in the USA by Gibson, these pickups give guitarists a replica of the sound and tone from Gibson's original "Patent Applied For" pickups - the same pickups that give the '59 Les Paul Standard its legendary sound. BurstBuckers feature unpolished magnets and non-potted coils. Just like the originals, these reproduce the variations found among vintage Gibson humbuckers.

Other premium features including gold hardware, vintage style tuners with "tulip" buttons, Epiphone PAF LockTone tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece and Epiphone's own StrapLocks. Additionally, each new "Tak Matsumoto Signature DC Custom" comes with a custom hard case featuring the "Tak Matsumoto" signature on it and a certificate of authenticity.
