The Epiphone Triumph appeared in 1931 as a non-cutaway, 16 3/8 inch wide, 25.5 inch scale length acoustic archtop guitar competing with the Gibson L-7. In 1948, the Epiphone Triumph Regent appeared as a cutaway version, and in 1958 the non-cutaway Triumph disappeared - but at the same time, the Triumph Regent became the Triumph and the Regent name was dropped. Production ceased in 1969.
This is a 1964 Epiphone Triumph, built at the Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan. This example has had a 'New Yorker' style mini-humbucking pickup installed to the top, with a single volume and tone control. This addition was done decades ago when the guitar was quite new, and the guitar has been played since; fretwear is moderate to heavy on original fretwire. Overall, the condition is quite good with just a few small dents. There is a stain on the top which could be from being stored with a strap.
This is a very nice guitar to play, with a very comfortable neck and moderately sized body.
