From Epiphone:


Epiphone proudly presents the Ltd. Ed. John Lee Hooker 100th Anniversary Zephyr Outfit honoring the 100th birthday of the “King of the Boogie Woogie,” one of the most influential artists of the 20th century. Featuring the classic Zephyr archtop design powered by new Epiphone ProBucker™ Mini-Humbucker humbuckers, Wilkinson® Deluxe machine heads, a Premium Vintage Styled Hard Case, and a leather strap.

Made with the cooperation of John Lee Hooker's family, the new Epiphone Ltd. Ed.  John Lee Hooker 100th Anniversary Zephyr Outfit is a faithful replica of Hooker's rare 1961 Epiphone Zephyr that was his main instrument on tour and in the studio for over a decade. Hooker’s original Zephyr was one of only 13 made in 1961 and only 45 Zephyrs were produced between 1959 and 1963. Now, 55 years later, what better way to reintroduce the Zephyr than to honor John Lee Hooker!

Boogie Chillen!:  The Ltd. Ed. John Lee Hooker 100th Anniversary Zephyr Outfit features the original all-hollowbody design with a Maple top and body in an Antique Natural finish with single-ply Ivory binding and traditional unbound f-holes. The smooth Mahogany neck has a Hard Maple Center Stripe and is shaped with a Vintage “C” profile with a 24.75” scale length, a Pau Ferro fingerboard, 20 medium jumbo frets, a Delrin nut, and a Pearloid “Split Block” design like the original Zephyrs. The imitation Tortoise shell pickguard has a foil "E" just like vintage Zephyrs. 

New Epiphone ProBucker™ Mini-Humbuckers:  The Ltd. Ed. Zephyr is powered by newly designed Epiphone ProBucker™ Mini-Humbucker, part of Epiphone’s critically acclaimed ProBucker pickup series that strives to recreate Epiphone’s classic pickups. Controls for each pickup’s volume and tone are Gold "Top Hats" with Metal Inserts and Metal Pointers in addition to an Epiphone all-metal three-way pickup selector. 

Rock Solid Hardware:  The new Ltd. Ed. Zephyr Outfit comes with Epiphone’s exceptional rock-solid hardware including a Pau Ferro floating bridge, Wilkinson® Deluxe machines heads with Ivory Buttons, a Vintage-styles Trapeze tailpiece, and an Epiphone nickel rim-mounted output jack. The Zephyr Outfit also includes a Premium Vintage-style hard case, a leather strap, a Certificate of Authenticity, and a presentation binder. 

Limited Lifetime Guarantee:  Like all Epiphones, the Ltd. Ed.  John Lee Hooker 100th Anniversary Zephyr Outfit comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson 365/24/7 Customer Service. This limited edition won’t last long. Visit your Authorized Epiphone Dealer for details.

**Listing does not include applicable sales tax. Please see our Tax section below for a list of states we are collecting and remitting sales tax in.**

**Free 2-day delivery service is not available on orders with offers. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.**

- We ship most orders placed before 2pm Central Time the SAME DAY once payment has been approved. Exceptions to this include guitars, amplifiers, and drum kits that require setups and inspections and additional packaging time.

- All orders with 2-day delivery service will ship within one business day via UPS. Saturday delivery is not included, but is available for an additional service charge in most areas. Please note, UPS does not operate on Sundays. We are unable to use a PO Box for a UPS shipment, so please provide an alternate address to ensure you receive your order as expected.

- All packages are fully insured at no additional charge. Your instrument will be shipped using the highest level of industry-standard packing materials, in every attempt to make sure it arrives in ready-to-play condition. We will notify you prior to shipping your instrument if additional steps need to be taken in the packing process.

- Our shipping team works closely with the CME Repair Shop and our vintage experts to inspect and pack every instrument with the utmost care. These folks know what it takes to keep an instrument protected. As musicians ourselves, we know how important it is that you receive your CME package in perfect condition.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
- Our international shipping rates should reflect on the item listing. Feel free to message us directly for shipping quotes on specific items or with any questions. Please note, international shipments may take extra time and are subject to delays.

- All shipping rates are for actual transportation charges and do not include VAT, import taxes, or brokerage fees, which vary from country to country.

- If you order contains Rosewood, or any other CITES restricted woods, your shipment might be delayed due to Customs processing standards that CME is subject to as the shipper. All orders requiring CITES documentation must ship to the buyer's residential address. If your country requires CITES import permits, please work with your local Customs agency to obtain these permits prior to shipment.

- Most of our preset shipping rates are for USPS International Service. USPS is typically less expensive than UPS, but their international tracking system is not as accurate. We ship guitars via UPS Worldwide Expedited unless you request a different service. Arrival times may vary from country to country. Some large items such as bass guitars, drum kits, amplifiers, and speaker cabinets may not be eligible for shipping via USPS due to size limitations. Some brands cannot be shipped internationally due to manufacturer restrictions. Feel free to message us with any questions.

- We are unable to ship to Russia due to the current trade sanctions.
