The Wilshire lies between the simple Coronet and higher-end Crestwood in Epiphone's line-up of '60s double cutaway solidbody guitars. The Wilshire was introduced after Gibson bought Epiphone, and featured two P-90 pickups during its first few years of production. Between 1966 and 1968, Epiphone produced a 12-string version of the guitar which is considerably rarer than the 6-string counterpart.
