Since it's introduction in 1958, the Epiphone Texan has been the choice of countless musicians including Paul McCartney, Peter Frampton and Noel Gallagher. In fact, McCartney wrote and recorded "Yesterday," one of the most recorded and popular songs ever, on his 1964 Texan and still uses it on stage today. Now, Epiphone brings back the Texan combining all the great features of the original with modern updates for today's musician. In 2010 Epiphone released an "Inspired By" 1964 Texan. This model is still based on McCartney's original, and is manufactured in Qingdao, China. This model does not have the adjustable bridge, and adds a Sonic Nanoflex pickup and preamp.
