1956 Epiphone Zephyr Regent – £1699

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 1956 in Manhattan, New York, the year before Gibson bought the company. The full-depth maple laminate body provides warm, classic tone with superior feedback resistance. The Dearmond dynasonic pickup, which was fitted to Zephrys in that year, is clear and detailed. As well as being a classic jazzer, it also works well for blues, swing and rock ’n’ roll. The guitar is in excellent condition, with a very comfortable neck and easy playing action. It comes in a non original hard case.

NEW ARRIVAL  Gibson’s LG0 is the lesser known cousin of the LG1 - a 00 sized, ladder braced acoustic, but with a Mahogany top rather than Spruce. The tone is smoother and warmer than an LG1, and what it lacks in attack it makes up for in sustain. The guitar works...
