The Workhorse of the Epiphone Line

This 17 3/8-inch-wide acoustic archtop guitar weighs 5.80 lbs. and has a nice, fat nut width of over 1 11/16 inches and a scale length of 25 1/2 inches. Triple-bound solid carved spruce top with two f-holes, walnut back and sides, five-piece walnut, maple and mahogany neck, and single-bound rosewood fretboard with 20 frets and inlaid pearl paired-diamond position markers with black dots. Single-bound rounded-peak headstock with "Epiphone" script logo and floral ornament inlay with fleur-de-lis design at the top. Epiphone closed-back tuners with tulip-shaped Keystone plastic buttons. Single-bound tortoiseshell pickguard. Rosewood bridge with rosewood base and Epiphone Frequensator tailpiece. This guitar is in excellent plus (8.75) condition. There is an area of surface wear on the back of the guitar and a little bit of surface checking. Housed in the original Epiphone brown hardshell case with green velvet lining (8.50).

"The Triumph, like the Broadway, had a walnut body. Small paired diamonds, like those of the old Recording C model, ornamented the fingerboard" (Walter Carter, Epiphone: The Complete History, p. 25).
