As the father of the 7 string guitar this was the first production seven string ever. This one has the preferred truss rod (headstock, not the Baldwin era heel adjustment). Van Epps played with Peggy Lee, Tony Bennet, Sarah Vaughn and others. Bucky Pizzarelli also used this model on the Johnny Carson era Tonight Show. This guitar strung with Pizzareli strings. This guitar has new binding (whew) and pickguard but original pickups and Grover tuners. Sounds deep and rich. Quite rare. Comes with the original grey deluxe hard case. Go to for more photos.
