bluzcatz Posted December 10, 2010 Share Posted December 10, 2010 I bought a new Epiphone Montana in Houston,Tx in 1993. It was suppose to be a high end Epiphone to compete with their mother company Gibson. Built in Bozman along side Gibsons. It retailed in 93 for $1895.00. Does anyone else out there have one of these guitars? There was at least 7 of these built and maybe as many as 12 before Gibson pulled the plug. These got out and I have one. The only thing I changed in my Montana was the preamp and pickup. The original electronics where not up to the quailty of the guitar. I replaced my electronics with LR Baggs onboard preamp and pickup. The guitar has the best live sound on any accoustic guitar I have ever played live. It sounds as good plugged in as it does just playing it in your living room. I know this is a very rare guitar to be so new in age and I know someone that is a friend of mine who also has one on these. I would like to know the whole story on these guitars and what happened in Bozman to the guys thinking they had the OK to build these guitars.Email me Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
