This is an early 1940s Epiphone Triumph arch top guitar. The guitar is in amazing condition and is played regularly. Has a great action and sound. This is a swing rhythm machine and begs to play Duke, Hoagy and Django. The top is spruce and the back and sides are flamed maple. The neck is mahogany with a maple/rosewood/maple stripe down the back and an ebony fretboard with gorgeous art deco mother of pearl inlays. Virtually everything on the guitar is original except for a new Epiphone Frequensator tailpiece (the original disintegrated at the weld as they all do at this age) and new fret board and headstock bindings. The guitar was purchased from the estate of the original owner who played it for many years in her family’s Western Swing band (see photos).
