Well, it's mine: 2020 Epiphone USA Texan

Recommended Posts

I put a deposit on this at the end of June and paid it off on Sunday. I suppose I could have just paid for it all at once, but it felt more responsible to spread it out.

I've wanted a Texan since I first started playing, but I had just missed the Elitists (which I couldn't afford at the time anyway), and by the time the Inspired by 1964 Texan was released, I already owned a Gibson J-45 and didn't need to add a $400 copy to my collection. I then stopped paying attention to the market, until about a year ago, just in time for them to announce two new USA-made Epiphone models.

The Texan has the body and neck that I like on my J-45, but it's sweeter, without the thudding bass that I've been frustrated by. I'm very pleased.

Beautiful guitar!  And, the classic USA made version!  Who’d  have thought it could ever be back and available, again!  And, again being made in the same plant as Gibson J-45s!
 

Congratulations on adding it to your guitar collection!

It's really amazing; my J-45 and this Texan were made in the same factory with the same materials, but each sound different. They aren't completely different, but they are definitely distinct variations of the same voice.
