    Historic Epiphone Century Story
    In Epiphone history, the “Century” name goes all the way back to the 1930s big band era, when the “House of Stathopoulo” was making some of the best archtops ever made. And when Epiphone merged with Gibson and moved its productions to Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1957, the Century was reborn as a popular thinline archtop, similar to a Casino or a “335” but with a slightly smaller body and a single P-90 pickup.

    A Modern Archtop Inspired by “1966”
    The new Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century hollowbody thinline archtop revives the mid 60s design prized by collectors for their comfortable, lightweight body with neck joint at the 14th fret and warm, woody tone. The Laminated Maple body features a Maple top and both the top and back have Ivory colored single layer binding. The Mahogany neck has a Rounded “C” shape and a 25.5” scale with a simple but elegant Rosewood fingerboard with Pearloid “Dot” inlays, 20 medium frets, and an original nylon nut. The Century is available in an Aged Gloss finish in either Cherry or Vintage Sunburst. And a 1960s era Replica Blue Soundhole Label can be seen through the upper f-hole. The white and black layered pickguard has a classic 60s era "E”.

    New P-90 PRO Pickup
    The Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century is powered by the new single coil P-90 PRO™ pickup, recognized around the world as the most versatile and expressive single coil pickup available. Just like originals P-90s, the Epiphone P-90 PRO is an extremely sensitive pickup that easily bends to a player's unique touch. With its distinctive growl and wide tonal range, it's great for rock and roll, pop, jazz, country, or anything you want to throw at it. The P-90 PRO features 18% Nickel Silver covers designed and tooled from the ground up with new bobbins manufactured to historic dimensions, Elektrisola magnet wire, sand cast Alnico V magnets, and pole shoes manufactured using correct alloy. And for you sticklers to detail, Epiphone P-90 PROs also have tin plated brass base plates like those used on 50s and 60s era Gibson P-90 pickups. Controls are simple Master and Tone knobs.

    Solid Hardware
    The Epiphone Inspired by “1966” Century includes legendary Wilkinson Vintage 3-in-a-row machine heads with plastic Ivory buttons with a 14:1 tuning ratio that are mounted on a Historic Sloped Dovewing headstock with a gold "Epiphone" logo. The dual action truss rod has 60s era black "Bullet” cover with a Vintage "E" in white. The floating adjustable Rosewood bridge is supported by a traditional “Trapeze” style tailpiece. The “1966” Century comes strung at the factory with D'Addario strings.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Great axe! Great woody tone, which is just what I wanted and was hoping for. Plays fantastic, P90 pickup really kicks too! The wood on my Century is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love this guitar. It's hard to put down! I just got my '66 Century with beautiful gray/blue reissue-style case from AMS for a good price, no tax, and payment plan I can handle. Thanks AMS! This is a 'keeper' guitar for me for sure! Epi nails it again!

    What is your opinion of this product?
    It is 25.5" scale! Measure it. I'm just trying to figure out the right strings for it. Epi web site says 11-52 with a wound .019 3rd and an oddball 5th, supposedly d'adarrio, they make no such set. Heavy strings sound better unplugged, lighter better electrified. Overall, I love it, one of Epiphones best!

    Not a faithful reissue of the classic thinline
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Well I have an original 1962 and the scale length on all these Centuries was 25.5. If they could do it on the Olympic and the Zenith, why not this one? That said, I did play one and it sounds a little brighter than mine, and the color is spot on. Just wish the scale length was correct. It makes it a difference.
