1941 Epiphone Olympic


Located in Portland, OR


For your consideration a 1941 Epiphone Olympic with a Sunburst finish! No vintage guitar store would be complete without an old archtop! Not many companies did it better than Epiphone and this is a wonderful example of the fine craftsmanship going on this time. Nearly all original, only alteration is a new bone nut. Action is perfect for flat picking or swing rhythm! Brazilian rosewood fingerboard! Wonderful big vintage neck! Carved solid spruce top! They don’t make them like this anymore!
