Through close collaboration with Grammy-nominated artist James Bay, Epiphone has painstakingly re-created Bay's very own customized Cherry-finished '66 Epiphone Century with this special run James Bay signature model.

A couple years back, Epiphone reached out to one of today's most talented artists, James Bay, in hopes of re-creating Bay's own vintage Century model. Of course, Bay was ecstatic... just as any guitarist would be! Today, Epiphone introduces an ultra-accurate replica of Bay's prized stage and studio guitar with the Limited Edition James Bay Signature "1966" Century Outfit.

Authentic Vintage Epiphone Vibes
The James Bay Signature Century is kind of like going back in time over a half a century ago and getting your hands on a brand-new guitar from back then. While it has the aesthetic of a brand-new instrument, it still has all the mojo of a vintage Century model. Designed in the exacting image of Bay's own original instrument, this James Bay Century features spot-on body and neck dimensions, an exacting neck profile, a beautiful Cherry gloss finish, a Delrin ivory colored nut, and an old-style Epiphone Dovewing headstock with a vintage '60s logo.

Classic P-90 Tones with Hum-Free Performance
The James Bay Century comes fitted with the same hand-wound Kinman "Sweet Neck" P-90 Hx Noiseless pickup just like his own guitar, which offers that timeless single-coil snap while reducing that unwanted hum. Allowing you to deliver the signature sound and dynamics of those sought-after vintage Gibson P-90s while providing hum-free performance, this particular pickup is truly the only one of its kind in today's pickup market. A simple 2-knob control layout consisting of Master Volume and Tone controls, the electronics also feature high-quality USA-made CTS potentiometers.

Historically-Accurate Hardware and Signature Appointments
Remaining true to the original, the James Bay Signature "1966" Century comes with all vintage-correct hardware including a set of Wilkinson tuners with ivory buttons, a compensated floating bridge with brass adjustment wheels, a nickel tailpiece, and a long white pickguard with a raised metal "E". Signature appointments include a James Bay Hat Man logo on the back of the headstock, plus the serial number of the original instrument is laser0inscribed on the back. A vinatge-style '60s hardshell case, a hand-signed Certificate of Authenticity, a photo of James Bay, and a replica of Bay's custom homemade strap.
