This Left Handed Guitar Research Eddie Durham 100th Anniversary Electric Archtop Guitar is in super clean condition. Eduard "Eddie" Durham was the "Pioneer" of electric guitar, being the world's first ever to record a jazz electric guitar solo on a Gibson ES-150 guitar in 1938. He was also credited for his work with Cab Calloway, Glenn Miller and Count Basie, among others. He was born in 1906 and this collectible guitar was made in 2007 to celebrate the man who first recorded the electric archtop guitar.
This beauty features a 17" wide flamed maple body with heavy binding, large F holes, gold hardware, floating jazz mini-humbucker pickup with pickguard mounted controls on 100th Anniversary Engraved Tortoiseshell Pickguard, large ornate headstock with heavy bindings and pearl inlays, gold Grover Imperial style tuners, beautiful rosewood fretboard with MOP block inlays and Eddie Durham signature on 12th fret inlay, adjustable truss rod and adjustable rosewood bridge.
The Blonde finish is absolutely stunning and the top is very nicely flamed maple. The guitar has jumbo frets with no wear and a thin neck that is a joy to play and has been adjusted to play right. It is strung with flat wound 11-52 strings. The floating pickup sounds great and the controls work fine with very little noise from the pots. This guitar ships in a padded gig bag.
