This guitar is a wonderful-playing 1930's Epiphone De Luxe with the more advanced body shape. This guitar has to be one of the easiest-playing archtops you'll ever find. It sounds excellent as well. The guitar is certainly not collector-grade as there are many modifications but it's structurally very solid.
The guitar has a replaced Brazilian Rosewood fretboard with custom fretboard inlays, also the neck has been oversprayed, some overspray on the back of the body, changed Grover tuners, changed bridge and a nice old Johnny Smith type pickup installed with volume knob. The binding was deteriorating but was stabilized many years ago. Patent Pending Frequensator tailpiece is present with restored hinge. There is one repaired crack on the top above the bass side f-hole and a back seam hairline that was repaired. The interior label is missing.
Structurally, the guitar is very nice. It needs nothing to be enjoyed right now. Again, this guitar is a wonderful-playing and sounding guitar. Comes with the a nice hardshell case. This is a lot of guitar for the money!
