As you’ll know if you read this post on Jimi Hendrix, the great man, before he migrated to playing a Strat left-handed, once played an Epiphone Wilshire. And now, according to Musician’s Friend, Epiphone is about to launch a special edition of the Wilshire.
MF describes the new Wilshire as ‘Perfect for anyone who wants to stand out or already has an SG and LP’

It has a Mahogany set neck, Alnico humbuckers, solid mahogany body, and is finished in white. The Wilshire also has a rosewood fretboard with block inlays, chrome hardware, ‘bat wing’ headstock, and inline Grover Mini-Rotomatic tuners.
The chrome bridge and stop tailpiece complete the look and there’s a pick-up selector and volume and tone controls for each of the humbuckers.
The original Wilshire was made between 1959 and 1970 and originally featured two P-90 pick-ups and dot inlays, along with a Tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece. In 1962, the P-90s were replaced with mini-humbuckers.
