1949 Epiphone Triumph


Out of stock

The Epiphone Triumph was part of the “Masterbilt” series, and in this time Epiphone was the king of archtops. Being post-1936 it’s an advanced model with a bigger 17 & 3/8″-wide body, solid maple back and sides, carved spruce top (mmm…carved), “Frequensator” tailpiece, pearl logo, bound Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, “fat column” peghead inlay, and bound pickguard. These are similar to Gibson’s L-7 (when this guitar was made Gibson was Epiphone’s competitor, not their parent company). This one has a huge tone, and a nice big “v” neck. Has recent neck set, so it’s a feather-touch action, yet big volume. Remarkable. But wait, there’s more. It comes with the original deluxe hard case and zippered case cover. Made in New York City, USA.
