“The Epiphone Sorrento was a thinline electric acoustic guitar, produced by Gibson at their Kalamazoo factory during the 1960s. It was, in many ways, an equivalent model to the Gibson ES-125TC and ES-125TDC”
Ajustement et réparation en 2020, facture à l’appui de chez Montreal Guitar – voir les détails plus bas.
Le manche a subi une cassure partielle (je l’ai achetée comme ça), qui a été réparée par le premier propriétaire. Toby chez Montréal Guitar m’a confirmé que cette réparation était bien faite et solide. La conséquence n’est qu’esthétique et ne nuit aucuement à la jouabilité de l’instrument – qui est par ailleurs superbe avec une tonalité vintage.

Toby at Montreal Guitar confirmed to me that this repair has been well-made and is solid. Only consequence is aesthetic and doesn’t impair playability in any way nor its vintage tone.

=== GENERAL INFOS/INFOS GÉNÉRALES Dates of manufacture: 1960 to 1969 The single pickup Epiphone Sorrento (E452T) was introduced in 1960. It was a hollow bodied archtop very similar in design to the Gibson ES-125TC, with one mini PAF humbucker in the neck position. A vibrato tailpiece was an optional extra. There were several changes to this model during the 1960s. The initial E452T had dot fingerboard markers and a metal headstock logo plate. In 1962 the fingerboard inlays were changed to ovals and the headstock logo was screen printed on. In 1965 the headstock shape was elongated. This model was discontinued in 1969. Similar models were the two pickup version – E452TD, and a short scale length version the E452T¾. Although the 2 pickup E452TD version has been reissued
