New Bozeman-Made Guitar Honors Massive Country Music Superstar
Gibson has been making beautiful handmade acoustic guitars in Bozeman, Montana since the facility first opened in 1988. Now, the company has partnered with one of the biggest country music stars in the world to release a limited number of custom Epiphone guitars.
According to Guitar World, Epiphone has teamed up with Chris Stapleton on a new Bozeman-made signature Epiphone Frontier guitar, and to be honest, it's one of the most incredible guitars I've ever laid eyes on. Epiphone is a sister company of Gibson.
Only 300 of the limited-edition Epiphone guitars were produced by expert luthiers and craftspeople in Bozeman, Montana, and they all disappeared within 24 hours of when they were released. The pricetag was $4,999. Here's a description of the signature Chris Stapleton acoustic guitar on the Epiphone website.
The Chris Stapleton Frontier features a thermally aged Sitka spruce top, figured maple back and sides, and double engraved pickguards with the classic Frontier lariat and cactus motif.
The guitar is truly a work of art and will be a welcomed addition to any guitarist's arsenal. The custom hardshell case is equally as impressive with a soft fuzzy pink interior and tooled leather exterior.
If you weren't able to get your hands on one before they were gone, you're probably out of luck. The signature guitars were released to celebrate Epiphone's 150th anniversary.
