1937 Epiphone Olympic – £1749
NEW ARRIVAL This guitar is from Epiphone’s golden archtop age, when the company was still based in New York before they were bought by Gibson in 1957. 30’s and 40’s Epiphone archtops have long been considered among the best of their kind, and the Epiphone Olympic is now famous in it’s own right as the guitar of choice of David Rawlings. The guitar features a Spruce top with Mahogany back and sides, and has a bright, punchy tone with plenty of volume. The guitar is in good, all original condition, with all the right signs of playwear, and lends itself to blues, jazz, country, bluegrass, old time and swing. It has a transducer pickup fitted, and comes in a non original but vintage, hard case.
