When you've achieved your dreams and are ready for an instrument as accomplished as you are, the new Joan Sebastian "Triunfadora" may just be the perfect guitar for you. With its gorgeous appearance, premium features and distinctive mother-of-pearl and abalone inlays featuring the Cross (Faith), the Heart (Love) and the Horseshoe (Luck), the new Joan Sebastian "Triunfadora" is a true achievement in guitar design and quality.

With a body shape inspired by Gibson's famous J-185, this "Triunfadora' is slightly smaller than a Super Jumbo guitar making it a much more comfortable instrument to play while still maintaining great acoustic power and projection. Producing a big sound with clear acoustics, it is equally impressive for powerful strumming or delicate fingerpicking, and everything in between. And, it's beautiful rounded cut-away not only gives it a distinctive look, but also allows for easy fret access up to its 20th fret.

As distinctive as the man himself, the new "Triunfadora" spares no expense when it comes to details. Just one looks at its Rosewood body wrapped in Abalone multi-binding, mother-of-pearl "crosses" inlaid into the bound fingerboard with elegant "moustache" shaped end and it's clear that this guitar is special. But what really sets it apart from all other is its sound hole rosette featuring 13 hearts inlaid into a ring of rosewood. Joan Sebastian chose this distinctive feature to pay tribute to the many loves he has found and lost in his life.

At the heart of every guitar is the wood and with an acoustic guitar, nothing contributes more to it’s tone than the top. That's why the new "Triunfadora" features a Solid Sitka Spruce top with hand-scalloped, lightweight bracing that only improves with age. A solid Mahogany neck is hand-fitted to it's premium Rosewood body using a traditional dovetail neck joint and Titebond(TM) glue providing maximum surface contact and strength. Combined, the result is a guitar with deep rich lows and shimmering highs with just the right amount of mid-range and warmth. Top it all off with an elegant solid Rosewood bridge with mother-of-pearl "horseshoe" inlays and you've got a one-of-a-kind instrument.

With Epiphone's new, eSonic(TM) preamp and NanoFlex(TM) pickup system, the "Triunfadora" comes alive when plugged in. Made in cooperation with Shadow Germany, the new eSonic preamp features a built-in, easy to use tuner. When engaged, the guitar's output is automatically muted -- with no "popping" noise -- making it a perfect choice for stage use. You can even push in the "tuner" button and unplug the guitar without a loud "pop." Other controls on this state-of-the-art preamp include Master Volume, Bass, Treble, EQ Shape, Low Battery indicator and a Phase switch to help eliminate unwanted feedback. The preamp uses two 2032 lithium watch batteries that are not only lightweight, but provide significantly longer life than old-fashioned, heavy 9V batteries. Under the "Triunfadora's" saddle, is Shadow's proprietary NanoFlex, low-impedance pickup. Not a piezo, this unique flexible sensing material features integrated active electronics and picks up not only string vibration but also top and body vibrations as well for a truly acoustic tone without the harshness of piezos.

The new "Truinfadora" not only looks and sounds amazing; it's also a joy to play as well. The neck features Epiphone's famous SlimTaper(TM) profile. This D-shaped neck is slim enough to give you the speed you want but thick enough provide the stability and playing comfort you need -- performance after performance. At 1-23/32", the nut width and therefore the string spacing is just slightly wider than your typical acoustic guitar. This not only makes it easy to finger notes more cleanly, it also makes it perfect for finger-style picking.

The "Triunfadora" also features a smooth, durable Rosewood fingerboard fitted with 20 medium/jumbo frets for years of playing enjoyment. Gold plated, premium 14:1 Grover(TM) machine heads with stepped buttons provide excellent tuning accuracy and stability. Other premium touches include a multi-bound body on the top and back as well as a bound fingerboard.

This specific guitar is a joy to play. Its voice is clear, balanced and very articulate. It excels when fingerpicked, and yet, resists compression when you “dig in”. The extensive binding and inlays are perfectly executed and the fretwork is meticulous. I have checked and adjusted the truss rod. I tested the electronics and everything works exactly as it should. Nonetheless, I gave all of the controls a protective shot of contact cleaner. I've conditioned the fretboard and bridge and polished and lubed the nut slots. It plays very well, looks terrific, and sounds even better. After a thorough inspection, I can find no evidence of repair, including looking into the interior with an inspection mirror. All I can report is a few, almost invisible scuffs, likely from shifting during shipping. They are way too faint for any camera to see, and are nothing more than I often find on new guitars. I'm sorry, but I do not have a case for this instrument.
