The 50th Anniversary "1962" Sorrento E452TDN features a laminated maple top and body, a mahogany neck with a 1960s SlipTaper™ profile, a rosewood fingerboard with dot inlays, 20 medium jumbo frets, historically accurate binding and tortoise style pickguard, and Gibson USA mini-humbuckers. Like the Casino, the Sorrento is a completely hollow design that makes for a lightweight guitar with a wide range of tones.
The Tune-o-matic™ floating bridge has a rosewood bridge base with a reissue of the original classic trapeze tailpiece. The Sorrento's electronics are top-notch Epiphone quality with CTS potentiometers, a ¼" non-rotating output jack, and gold TopHat controls to go along with Wilkinson™ Vintage Style machine heads with small buttons and a 14:1 tuning ratio. The dovewing headstock has a classic Epiphone metal logo badge and there is also a historically accurate "blue rectangular" Epiphone label. The "1962" Sorrento comes with 1962 Collection Certificate of Authenticity.
All of the "1962" Collection instruments were designed by Epiphone luthiers who worked from the best examples of vintage originals found in Epiphone's own collection in Nashville. Measure for measure, the "1962" Collection recreates the look, sound, and feel of the originals first produced at the Gibson & Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1962, the same factory that produced the Les Paul Standard, the SG, and the 335.
