Product Description

Epiphone proudly presents the Limited Edition John Lee Hooker 100th Anniversary Zephyr Outfit honoring the 100th birthday of the ‘King of the Boogie Woogie,’ one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Featuring the classic Zephyr archtop design powered by new Epiphone ProBucker Mini-Humbucker humbuckers, Wilkinson Deluxe machine heads, a Premium Vintage Styled Hard Case, and a leather strap.

Made with the cooperation of John Lee Hooker's family, the new Epiphone Limited Edition John Lee Hooker 100th Anniversary Zephyr Outfit is a faithful replica of Hooker's rare 1961 Epiphone Zephyr that was his main instrument on tour and in the studio for over a decade. Hooker’s original Zephyr was one of only 13 made in 1961 and only 45 Zephyrs were produced between 1959 and 1963.Now, 55 years later, what better way to reintroduce the Zephyr than to honor John Lee Hooker!

  • Modeled on the rare 60s original used by Hooker on his classic recordings 
  • Newly designed Epiphone ProBucker Mini-Humbuckers
  • Wilkinson Deluxe machine heads with Ivory Buttons
  • Premium Vintage Hard Case and leather strap
Boogie Chillen!
The Limited Edition John Lee Hooker 100th Anniversary Zephyr Outfit features the original all-hollowbody design with a Maple top and body in an Antique Natural finish with single-ply Ivory binding and traditional unbound f-holes. The smooth Mahogany neck has a Hard Maple Center Stripe and is shaped with a Vintage ‘C’ profile with a 24.75 inches scale length, a Pau Ferro fingerboard, 20 medium jumbo frets, a Delrin nut, and a Pearloid ‘Split Block’ design like the original Zephyrs. The imitation Tortoise shell pickguard has a foil ‘E’ just like vintage Zephyrs.

New Epiphone ProBucker Mini-Humbuckers

What is your opinion of this product?
1.the headstock and neck have a center piece of wood and it looks great the neck is thick i like that. the neck really feels good and solid in the hand the color looks like vintage. the tuners wilkinson deluxe 2.the nut binds at the g string i'll have to widen the g string slot a little. you should use a wound g string on these becuase it's compensated for a wound string for intonation. and it does intonate well like that. the daddarion 10 gauge set has a set with a wound g 18 gauge which works well.exl set i think. 3. the body is true hollow with a nice slightly orange tint the inside has two bass bars or supports about 1/4 inch thick running along the top which is like a violin has. it also has a wedged wood along the inside the neck pickup lines up with the strings but the bridge a couple of the pickup screws dont line up with the strings i adjusted the best i can it has an edgy but good sound i can play alot of styles but it's only 20 frets so you can only play comfortable up to

What is your opinion of this product?
I'm a fan of Mr. Hooker and to top it off this guitar was a limited run special edition. I've never owned a full hollow body guitar or played on mini humbuckers. All of those things combined into a definite desire to buy this guitar. I pulled the trigger and two days later it was on my porch. The guitar is beautiful, light and resonant. Finish is great but around the f holes a bit sloppy. Acoustically,pretty loud. When plugged in I thought the neck pickup seemed a bit muddy but after playing through a Fender tube amp it cleaned right up. The bridge pickup is pretty clear and snappy. Both together have a nice punch. Honestly, I was on the fence with this guitar but after playing it a few days through a good amp, it grew on me. I don't know if I can go back to a strat!This guitar is a great addition to my musical tool bag.
