Epiphone has looked to the Far East for their latest celebrity signing. Widely regarded as Japan's best rock 'n' roll band, Guitar Wolf have earned a huge national fanbase in recent years off the back of their incendiary shows and the virtuoso playing of lead guitarist Seiji. Following unprecedented interest in a guitar built to Seiji's specifications, this year will see the release of Epiphone's new G-310 electric. The bad news is: unless you're actually in Japan, you'll have to settle for this picture.
Available in Japan only, the G-310 is a rock 'n' roll thoroughbred at a rock bottom price. Its alder body is finished in moody ebony, with subtle dot inlays lining up on a rosewood fretboard and chrome hardware, completing a truly classic cosmetic package. Epiphone have put refreshing emphasis on simplicity too, with a tune-o-matic bridge and stopbar, keeping the restringing process fast and painless, while tough Grover Rotomatic tuners also promise an axe that can soak up the abuse. Seiji's vision wouldn't be complete without an aggressive pair of pickups, and Epiphone have duly supplied them in the form of two Alnico Classics.
Pickups: Alnico Classic/HOT Alnico Classic
Tuners: Grover Rotomatic
Nut Width: 1.68"
Neck Material: Mahogany
FB / Inlay: Rosewood/Dots
Body Material: Alder
Bridge / Tailpiece: Tunomatic/Stopbar
I wonder if I can get them to ship one to the States...
