Regular price $2,399.00

Essentially a Masterbuilt Jazz box made by the best craftsman at Epiphone in New York. High-end build quality from 1947, especially the fancy inlays on the rosewood board and headstock, bound tortoise pickguard as well as the E logo tuners. Solid maple back and sides, solid spruce top, maple neck. Gibson did not buy Epiphone until 1957 but this guitar has a similar Gibson type open book headstock shape. Sunburst finish. Reasonably priced big body playable guitar. This guitar is loud!

Someone spent some good money on this guitar with a good luthier. Originally, these models did not have an adjustable truss rod and that is why so many have high action and bowed necks. To make them playable, all kinds of work is done, including resetting the neck to make them play well. This guitar has had an adjustable truss rod added and it was well done. It is accessible under the end of the raised fingerboard. Consequently, the neck is straight with great string action. You can do all those comp’d jazz chords and legato runs on this guitar.

There is a repaired crack the length of the lower bout on the back. About a 2” unrepaired crack on the back below the heel. There are several repaired cracks on the top. The tailpiece is nickel and does not say anything on it. Looks original, may not be. A piece of the headstock inlay is missing. Between the fingerboard and the bridge there are a few areas with glue residue from a floating pickup that was attached previously at some point in it’s life.

Original brown Lifton case with the “e” logo embossed on the inside lid. Lock does not work.

This one belongs at the Green Mill making some amazing music!
