Epiphone Sorrento

The Sorrento ran from 1960-1969 and was the Epiphone equivalent to the Gibson ES-125T. A grand total of 2631 Sorrentos shipped in the 1960s and corresponds to just under 10000 Gibson ES-125TC and ES-125TDC guitars over the same time period. The Sorrento had a brief come-back in the 1990s.
