One of the original gems in the Epiphone roster was the cool and compact Epiphone Wilshire. The Wilshire Phant-o-matic takes this classic shape and with the help of My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero, kicks it into the 21st Century.
This guitar is in essence a fusion of a Wilshire and a Les Paul, with a slim taper 60's neck and a rosewood fingerboard it feels robust and really familiar. Great for thick chunky riffs and slick leads lines.
Tonally this guitar is something a little special. With Alnico Classic humbuckers, the Phant-o-Matic features a 6 position Varitone switch and a 3 position toggle switch, giving you the grand total of 18 possible tonal variations. It's a monster. And if that wasn't enough, there's a kill switch for some extra tasty Tom Morello style effects!
