Epiphone Unveils New USA-Made Frontier Acoustic Guitars


Lyrics by Will Brewster

A return to the heart of acoustic production.

Although best known today as Gibson’s entry-level subsidiary brand, Epiphone has a rich heritage as one of America’s most dynamic mid-20th century guitar makers.

Check out all the latest product news here.

Now the brand is looking to reaffirm that lineage with the new Epiphone Frontier; the latest entry in their Epiphone USA collection and a fitting return to one of their most esteemed vintage builds.

Joining the likes of USA Casino, the Epiphone Frontier – originally produced by the brand between 1958 and 1970 – stands as one of the highest-end Epiphone models to come out of the Kalamazoo guitar factory to this era, sharing similar specs to expensive Gibsons. like the dove and the hummingbird.

Handcrafted by Gibson’s finest luthiers in Bozeman, Montana, the Epiphone Frontier uses a solid Sitka spruce top to produce a crisp, punchy sound, made even more resonant and rich by its traditional scalloped X-bracing by hand under the soundboard.

A wonderful choice of figured maple is used for the back and sides of the guitar, which helps complement the 25.5-inch scale mahogany neck and smooth Indian rosewood fingerboard.

Epiphone has also adorned the Frontier with a “lasso and cactus” tortoiseshell pickguard design, giving the guitar a distinctly ornate aesthetic.

Other features include an LR Baggs VTC pickup with rosette-mounted volume and tone control, as well as an Indian rosewood bridge, gold Gotoh Keystone tuners, and bone nut and saddle.

The Frontier also comes in an Epiphone hard case and is available in two vintage-inspired finishes: Antique Natural and Frontier Burst.
