This guitar, formerly called “Gentleman”, was originally named after Chet Atkins’ song “Country Gentleman”, as well as for mimicking his style. The Epiphone Elitist Country Deluxe keeps up the tradition with its classic semihollowbody design, 24k gold hardware, 52SR and 50ST pickups, as well as its tremolo and controls. Includes hardshell case!

The Epiphone Elitist Country Deluxe Guitar, as all the Elite instruments, is equipped with custom-would pickups “Made in the USA” exclusively for Epiphone by Gibson Musical Instruments and are made with such uncompromising features as:

  • High Quality Cover Materials – All pickup covers use quality German silver with vintage Nickel or real 24K Gold finish.
  • Vintage Two-Conductor Wiring – Authentic two-conductor wiring with “braided” outer shielding for true vintage look and tone.
  • Full Wax Potting – Every pickup is potted in a special wax bath to insure that microphonic feedback due to internal vibration is elimated. All covered models receive a second wax bath to further protect the pickup.
  • Specially Made Magnets – All magnets are magnetized by Gibson to ensure the total reliability of each magnet’s performance. Critical magnetic flux is maintained for the perfect combination of output without sacrificing tonal characteristics.

All Elite instruments feature the finest hardware including precision Grover machine heads for precise tuning accuracy and stability.
Every Epiphone Elitist Country Deluxe Electric Guitar receives a meticulous adjustment and set-up at the factory in Nashville, Tennessee assuring that your Elitist instrument is “second to none”. And to show that Gibson stands behind every guitar, all Elitist instruments feature the Epiphone Limited Lifetime Warranty backed by over 100 years of uncompromising Customer Service from and Gibson Musical Instruments.
