Today, vintage models are difficult to find and are often plagued by vintage problems along with their vintage price tag. Epiphone engineers have solved those problems with our Viola, which has the same classic sound with improved pickups, hardware, and electronics.
The Viola features a laminated maple top and maple body in a beautiful Vintage Sunburst (VS) finish. The eye catching 30.5” scale maple neck is hand set and glued in and includes a rosewood fingerboard with a 12” radius, a 1.65” nut, and classic dot inlays. The headstock riffs on our famous 60’s Sloped Dovewing headstock.
The Viola’s incredible tone comes from a NYR (neck) and NYT (bridge) mini humbucker which perfectly compliment the ultra light maple body.
Epiphone’s stellar hardware features a classic inlaid gold tailpiece, a rosewood bridge with s compensated rosewood saddle, Volume controls for each pickup and a Master Tone, all using full-size 500K O potentiometers, and premium 14:1 machine heads.
