Epiphone Limited Edition James Bay 1966

Epiphone presents the Ltd. Ed. James Bay Signature "1966" Century Outfit, an incredibly accurate recreation of GRAMMY nominee James Bay's customized 1966 Epiphone Century archtop in an Gloss Cherry finish. Featuring a Kinman Noiseless "Sweet Neck" P-90, a reissue of the 60s-era compensated floating Rosewood bridge with brass wheels, a James Bay "Hat Man" headstock logo, Wilkinson Deluxe machine heads, USA made "CTS" 500K pots, and a reissue of an Epiphone '60s era hard case plus a hand-signed photo and custom strap.

Set Time Machine to 1966

The Ltd. Ed. James Bay Signature "1966" Century Outfit is both a time machine to the 60s and a near exact replica of Bay's customized stage and studio guitar. The Signature "1966" Century's Laminated Maple body top, back, and sides measure to the exact profile of Bay's original which was made at the historic Epiphone and Gibson factory Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1966. Bay's Signature "1966" Century is finished in a Cherry gloss finish with cream binding on the body top and back. The Mahogany neck is glued to the body at the 14th fret with a Mortise and Tenon joint and has the identical "C" profile and dimensions and Delrin ivory colored nut found on Bay's stage guitar. The Rosewood fingerboard has Mother of Pearl "Dot" inlays, a 25.5" scale length, and 20 medium frets. The historic Sloped Dovewing headstock has a 60s era Epiphone script logo in gold along with a James Bay Hat Man insignia. Bay's original Century serial number --385143-- is laser inscribed on the back.

Kinman Custom No Hum P-90 Pickup!

James Bay customized his Epiphone Signature "1966" Century archtop with the same hand-wound pickup he uses in his vintage Century, a Kinman "Sweet Neck" P-90 Hx Noiseless Single-Coil. Kinman pickups are world renown for their incredible sonic palate and "no hum" performance. Bay choose the Kinman for its classic P-90 tone and the additional reduction of hum necessary when playing the world's biggest outdoor festivals and indoor stages. The Kinman "Sweet Neck" P-90 Hx is the only P-90 style pickup currently in production that maintains the dynamic range and tonal characteristics of prized vintage Gibson P-90 pickups while providing hum free operation. The "1966" Century's Master Volume and Tone controls have Black Top Hat knobs with metal inserts and USA made CTS potentiometers.

Historic Hardware

The Ltd. Ed. James Bay Signature "1966" Century Outfit comes with vintage style 3-on-a-side Wilkinson Vintage machine heads with a 14:1 tuning radio and plastic Ivory buttons. The period correct long white pickguard has a raise metal "E" and the xBC" output jack is made by Switchcraft. Epiphone has also recreated the original compensated Floating Rosewood Bridge and brass adjustment wheels found on Bay's vintage '66 Century along with the nickel tailpiece. The Ltd. Ed. James Bay Signature "1966" Century Outfit is set up at the factory with world famous D'Addario strings and comes with a 60s-style hard case along with a Certificate of Authenticity, a James Bay photo hand-signed by Bay, and a recreation of Bay's custom homemade strap.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "I FOUND THE SOUND!!!"
Sound: Crisp, clear acoustic to down and dirty blues, this thing has it all. Couldn't be more thrilled. Feature: One upgraded P-90, one volume and one tone, couldn't be more simple than that. But even a slight movement to either volume or tone changes its sound making this really versatile for a wide range of applications. Ease of Use: Actions is a bit high, but I'll adjust it. The strings feel a bit like cable wire, but I don't think I'll change them to something lighter, I'll just get used to the heavier gauge since the sound is so perfect as is. Quality: A few sharp edges on some frets, but a little bit of filing will solve that. Other than that, the fit and finish are about as perfect as can be. I have been sadly disappointed in other name brand guitar manufacturers (beginning with 'G' ) lately but this Epiphone is stunning in both fit and finish. Well done, and a keeper for sure. Value: Price is about right. The other version of the Century 1966 is about $150.00 less. But this comes with a case, and an upgraded pickup and nut, and some case candy, so there really isn't much difference in price between the lesser cost (if you buy a case) and this one. So, the value is great! Manufacturer Support: Never used it. The Wow Factor: The wow factor? I've been playing for 50 years. It takes a lot to 'wow' me anymore. Usually my 'wow' is when I get a guitar and it really sucks, I say 'wow'. But this one...WOW. fantastic. Makes me fall in love with a guitar all over again. Overall: After searching for 50 years I found 'THE SOUND'. I play blues for a living and have gone through literally 100's of guitars until I took a chance on this one. It's IT! Search is over. Crystal clear cleans, bell like tones and very acoustic sounding...until you hit overdrive and this thing sings. The tonal range is superb. from country twang to George Thorogood blues to Clapton-esque tone, this thing nails it.
Style of Music: Blues and rock.
