A Meatier Dreadnought Design As you can see, the Epiphone Texan looks like a more or less typical dreadnought acoustic, but it actually has a decidedly more rounded upper bout and larger lower bout with a shallower waist. This "advanced jumbo" body shape imparts the guitar with its tonal character: a bright, snappy response balanced by a solid low end.
Premium Tonewoods Throughout This "Inspired By 1964" release of the Epiphone Texan has a solid spruce top with a solid mahogany back sides. The result is a guitar that sounds great right out of the box -- but is guaranteed to mature and richen with age if properly humidified and taken care of. The neck is made from a single piece of solid mahogany and set with a rosewood fingerboard. You'll feel the solidity of the hand-fitted and glued neck-body joint, while the Epiphone '60s SlimTaper neck is sure to reinforce the speed and finesse of your playing. The parallelogram position marker inlays reproduce the aesthetic of the original vintage models.
Shadow Sonic Preamp and Pickup System One of the finest additions to the Epiphone Texan for the more modern-day player is its state-of-the-art Shadow Sonic preamp system. This clever design uses an under-saddle NanoFlex low-impedance pickup to faithfully reproduce the sound of your playing. This essentially means that the system senses both the vibrations of the strings and the movements of the soundboard simultaneously, giving you the most true-to-life sonic image possible. The system itself is invisibly mounted inside the soundhole. The preamp features an easy-to-access volume control with a 2-band EQ control to help get your sound right for the space and amplifier you're using. A Phase switch is also provided to help kill feedback when it arises.
The preamp is powered with a battery pack that comes with an LED indicator to tell you when you're 30 minutes away from running out of juice. You'll need just 2 x 2032 lithium batteries to power this exceptionally lightweight and unobtrusive preamp. The high-quality Shadow output jack is incorporated into the endpin jack.
Improved Hardware Up top are 14:1 ratio vintage tuners that look just like the originals but are stronger and hold their tuning better. The saddle has been updated to a fixed, compensated design that provides much more balanced intonation and tuning stability.
