The classic Epiphone Genesis was one of Epiphone’s most original and modern designs when it was first published in the Epiphone catalog in late 1979. It was intended as a new beginning for Epiphone–a truly original solid body design that could hold its ground with a Les Paul, giving players the added advantage of an eye-catching double cutaway.
Now, the Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Genesis Deluxe Pro has added features like coil-tapping, Epiphone ProBucker pickups and Grover tuners along with a beautiful AAA flame maple veneer top and solid mahogany body.
Along with its bold shape, the Genesis featured coil-taping for both pickups via a separate toggle switch. Coil-tapping was a new concept to guitar players and the original Genesis was a bold instrument with incredible sustain from the mahogany body.
The Epiphone Ltd. Ed. Genesis Deluxe PRO goes a step further with Epiphone’s bold ProBucker pickups with individual coil-tapping for the rhythm and lead pickups to put the Genesis back to its rightful place among Epiphone greatest instruments.
