The Epiphone Zephyr Regent is a full body, 17.375 inches wide, built using Maple laminates for the top, back and sides for feedback resistance. The neck is Mahogany with Rosewood for the wooden bridge and bound fingerboard.  The position markers are slotted Mother of Pearl blocks,  perhaps looking forward to the markers found on the later Epiphone Howard Roberts model.

Built from 1964 to 1970, the Epiphone Howard Roberts Standard takes cues from very early Gibson archtops – specifically, the oval sound hole on an arched Spruce top. Apparently, 290 of these guitars were made, from introduction until Epiphone construction was moved out of Kalamazoo and sent overseas.At his peak, Howard Roberts was at the top of the session world, for a time doing nine hundred sessions a year.There were two versions of the Epiphone Howard Roberts – the Custom and Standard.

Epiphone Granada E444T Thinline Archtop Sunburst, 1965

Epiphone Granada E444T Thinline Archtop Sunburst, 1965

The Epiphone Granada E444T is much like the Gibson ES-125T, and was built in the Gibson Kalamazoo plant from 1962 to 1970. A non-cutaway thinline archtop, the Granada E444T has a large plastic plate that mounts the controls and a Melody Maker style single coil pickup. The sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish has faded nicely, and there is natural checking around the instrument. There are a few small dings and scratches on the back, but otherwise it is in good condition.

❌SOLD❌ Epiphone Riviera Style E360TDC Thinline Archtop Cherry, 1969

❌SOLD❌  Epiphone Riviera Style E360TDC Thinline Archtop Cherry, 1969

Introduced in 1962, the Epiphone Riviera followed the new Gibson Thinline design of thin archtop with a center block. The Riviera was a relatively plain model, with two small humbuckers and a Frequensator split trapeze or Vibrola tailpiece. It was built until 1970, when the Norlin management shifted Epiphone production to Japan. The full designation for the model is Epiphone Style E360 Riviera, and in this case it is an E360TDC for Thin, Dual Pickup, Cherry finish.
