1955 Epiphone Zephyr Regent – £1649

NEW ARRIVAL  Introduced in 1950, the Zephyr Regent was Epiphone’s most popular electric cutaway guitar. Epi’s journeyman 17″ instrument, the Zephyr Regent was positioned against its main competitor, the Gibson ES-350. Featuring a deeper cutaway than its Gibson rival, the Zephyr Regent facilitates upper fingerboard access by two to three frets. This example was made in 1955 in Manhattan, New York, two years before Gibson bought the company. The full-depth maple laminate body provides warm, classic tone with superior feedback resistance. As well as being a classic jazzer, it also works well for blues, swing and rock ’n’ roll. The guitar is in very good condition, with a very comfortable neck and good playing action. It comes in a non original hard case.
