1931 Epiphone Triumph – £1649

NEW ARRIVAL  The Triumph was introduced in Epiphone’s original archtop line of 1931, with a 15 3/4″ lower bout, Walnut back and sides, 3 segment F holes, and the Masterbuilt block logo. By 1933 the body was increased to 16 3/8” with Maple back ad sides, and in 1936 it went up to 17 3/8” and remained with that specification until 1958. So a first year of issue model, in the rarest spec is quite a find. The guitar has a big, bright sound, with good clarity and definition. The Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard with block inlays, and bound body and fingerboard are signs of real quality. Unusually for an arch top of this age, the action is good all the way along the neck, making the playability very easy. The guitar is in all original condition – although the Bakelite pickguard was painted over at some point – and very clean for it’s age. It even comes in it’s original hard case.

2012 Gibson B25 Custom Shop – £1999

NEW ARRIVAL  Gibson’s B25 was the lesser known replacement of the highly regarded LG2 back in 1962. So when Gibson decided to produce a Custom Shop limited edition reissue in 2012, it raised a few eyebrows. However, if you prefer the classic 60’s tone, rather than the...
